The book investigates the „Entangled History of
Colonialism and Mission“ in a historical, global,
regional-political, social, post-colonial, ethical,
cultural-anthropological, religious, as well as
missiological perspective. Past injustices and failures, as
well as sustainable developments must be methodically
clarified and understood that conclusions can positively
influence our understanding. Traumata of the colonial past
and its entanglement with mission shape the
self-understanding of since long independent churches.
Reflections on their experiences are important for an
ongoing culture of remembrance.
