Abstract

Situated within relational spirituality, the article suggests a possibility of decolonizing the eschatological future from a Bemba futuristic perspective. It argues that in order to reorder social relations for life-giving of any former colonized group, their vision of the future must be decolonized and brought into dialogue with the missio Christi which encapsulates an eschato-decolonial vision. Eschato-decolonial future is proposed an option articulation of the vision of the future informed by Bemba notion of relational future.
