Much dalit theology evolves in urban-based academia which, as in many a rank-ordered context, sets aside the thoughts and reflections of rural poor as unformed ignorance. Jeremiah starts from the theology of agricultural workers and brick-makers, evolved in their experience, coming to sober conclusions which do not always sit well with a Christianity run by (and for?) the relatively privileged. -- Elizabeth Koepping, Associate Director, CSWC School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, UK
An important contribution to the study of the religious world of the Dalit Christians -- Pavel Hons, Research Fellow, Oriental Institute, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic * Journal of African and Asian Studies *
Jeremiah's work is important for showing us that even at present there is caste both inside and outside the church and bias and discrimination are widespread. * Rowena Robinson, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India *
