Abstract

Even as many Aboriginal became Christian, the Christianity they accepted was that which had developed over many centuries in the Middle East, the Roman Empire and Western Europe. Questions are raised that if Aboriginal people had not been dominated culturally by the Europeans and had been free to develop their own Indigenous Christian life and theology, whether they might have expressed the concept of grace and hence the notion of covenant is explored.
