How to reconcile the deeply held Christian beliefs of Maori with the indigenous world view that they have inherited and are in many cases rediscovering? In Pa Henare's view, the traditional Christian message has fallen short of speaking intimately and powerfully to the Maori experience. Maori are crying out for a form of Christianity that is 'theirs'. He Puna Iti i te Ao Marama offers one response and contribution to this call by attempting to develop the foundations of an indigenous Maori theology. Pa Henare addresses both the kaupapa (principles) and the tikanga (process or method) whereby such a theology can develop, and then sets out some foundations for it through concepts rooted in Maori culture and history.
