About the Author

Rufus Burnett Jr. is professor, academic advisor, and affiliate of the Department of Africana Studies at the University of Notre Dame.


Decolonizing Revelation is ground-breaking theological analysis of racial project at the heart of colonial difference. Burnett offers a trenchant and incisive critique of our pursuit of racial equality that leaves out the problem of coloniality. In his powerful analysis of "blues life world" he offers an alternative trans-theological promise of solidarity and resistance. This powerful book is a must read for those of us invested in solidarity across differences and divides in a broken world. -- Wonhee Anne Joh, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
Decolonializing Revelation: A Spatial Reading of the Blues is a deeply subversive text-it invites us to destabilize the underlying logics of Western coloniality and participate in the epistemic reconstitution of ways of thinking and modes of being these logics disavowed. Burnett articulates a novel and theoretically rich treatment of the blues as a cosmovision, perspective and peoplehood aimed not only at critiquing Western coloniality and Christian faith but transforming its terms of discourse. This book is important for anyone passionate about the conceptual work required to generate and sustain ongoing projects of liberation as well as those invested in the remaking of Christian theology and cultural studies for the contemporary world. -- Adam Clark, Xavier University
