A Postcolonial Reading of Acts of the Apostles' reads Acts as an early Christian story that accommodated and disrupted, almost simultaneously, both the Roman colonial and the native Jewish nationalistic discourses of power. It shows how the early Christians created a space for themselves in-between and beyond those two polar opposite spaces; and how they grew, expanded and eventually erased those spaces of power. This reading of the Acts has a greater relevance for the present day ecclesia in the context of neocolonialism and religious fundamentalism. Thus, the implication part of the research tries to develop a postcolonial ecclesiology to address the issues that the schooling faces today. The research brings guidelines and practice for the third millennium marginalized ecclesia in India, to be studied through theological education. Contents
