Respect: Understanding Caribbean British Christianity

respectThe author investigates the context of Caribbean British Christianity through the prism of their ethnicity and their faith. Christians from the Caribbean have settled in Britain since the late 1940s. In spite of high levels of rejection and misunderstanding they have shaped a new British identity which is dynamic, empowering and challenging. The author argues that this no longer majors in the victim-based dialectic of oppression/ liberation. It is an unapologetic and prophetic identity which seeks to be respected and understood.
