The book seeks to investigate the role of healing in non-western healing
utilising interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives. The insights gained
from such investigations become the basis of formulating a new and
different theory of ritual and healing. This theory is then the use to
construct a practical theology of ritual in healing. This approach opens a
way for a dialectical, contextual hermeneutics of practical theology in
non-western culture, from which Christian theology can gain insights into
the traditions out of which people become Christian.
