Living in global villages where different world-views and cultures daily traverse each other, and the hegemonic power of the West is being challenged by other powerful role-players, numerous political and ethical challenges emerge. This traversing of narratives is interpreted and developed into a trans-fictional praxis, as a praxis that takes this global experience seriously. The book also acknowledges the role of Christianity in the construction of global villages and therefore seeks a Christ-poiēsis as a way for non-colonial spaces to emerge from the shadows of these villages.

Johann-Albrecht Meylahn is professor of theology at the Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Pretoria in South Africa.
