Towards a Black Thearchy: A Godbody Ecclesiology of the Early Gnostic Movement Black Divinity Series Vol 4

Shahidi Islam

An Ecclesiology for the New Ghetto Theology

As the world moves into late modernity urbanisation is slowly being replaced by ghettoisation with its attendant hypersexuality, hyperviolence, hyperexploitation, and underdevelopment. Using the story of Simon the Niger as a blueprint for how the early messianic movement grew and progressed from its own ghetto conditions Shahidi Islam presents an ecclesiology - with information that has only in our time been coming to light - of the early messianic movement. At the same time, he also uses that same ecclesiology to present a structure for the already existing ghetto movement of the godbody. Hereby, Islam hopes to formally structure and systemise the godbody to progress even as the early messianic movement did when they rose in their own time.
