SMIT, Dirkie J.. ‘Covenanting for Justice’? On the Accra Document, Reformed Theology and Reformed Ecclesiology. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1, pp.1-6. ISSN 2072-8050.

The essay provides a brief summary of the main argument of the Accra Document drafted by the World Alliance of Reformed Churches and entitled ‘Covenanting for Justice in the Economy and the Earth’. The focus is on discovering and describing the internal structure, the logic and focus, and thereby some of the most important implicit and explicit theological and ecclesiological convictions, suppositions and claims of the document, as far as possible in its own terminology. It then offers a tentative theological assessment, pointing out four very typical Reformed characteristics of the document, including its typical confessional nature and style. It finally suggests some ecclesiological implications arising from the document, again calling to mind four very specific characteristics of Reformed ecclesiology. On the whole, the essay serves as an invitation to further study, discussion and reflection on the challenges and calling implied in the document.

Palabras clave : Accra Document; globalisation; reformed theology; justice; ecclesiology.
