The final substantive chapter describes the content of the message of Christianity in the slum, and it explores how people receive and participate actively in the interpretation of that message. The church sermons—mostly indirectly, but nevertheless, unmistakably—provide a seering critique of caste people’s injustice and promise revolutionary deliverance. At the same time, the slum churches introduce microsocial technologies that serve to improve both relations between husbands and wives and those between women and their creditors.
