This chapter begins with a discussion of Christian theology. It then describes the purpose of this study, which is to offer a new paradigm in Caribbean theology, which will reflect the prophetic insights and liberative traditions in the African-derived religions of the region, focusing on the island of Jamaica. Relevant comparisons are also made between Jamaica and other islands in the Caribbean. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.
