Dr Terry LeBlanc North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies - 'In this brief volume Garry wrestles with questions Indigenous Christians everywhere regularly confront. As have others before him he asks, "How does an Indigenous person authentically make the faith that has been used as a means of oppression of him and his people, the ultimate source of his liberation from that oppression?" "Furthermore," he inquires, "how can he challenge the White Christian world that has all but subsumed his and his people's lives in theirs, with the need for reconciliation and change of heart, if their own hearts continue to harbour only bitterness, resentment, and anger?" The key concern is, of course, "What will it require of each of us to live together well in the land?" Personal story, embedded with pointed inquiry, and a spiritual pleading for transformation, invites the reader to consider her own way of faith and her own journey toward wholeness. Enjoy in these pages, a work of heart and soul seeking the good way.'Professor Mark Brett, Whitley College - In this compelling work, Garry Deverell offers a remarkable synthesis of autobiographical reflections, theological analysis and liturgical creativity. Putting aside theoretical jargon and conventional God-talk, we encounter here an Aboriginal voice that none of the churches in Australia can afford to ignore. This is a book that all Australian Christians need to read.
