Abstract

KRUIJF, Gerrit G. de. Is prophetic witness the appropriate mode of Christian participation in public discourse in the Netherlands?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2010, vol.66, n.1, pp.1-2. ISSN 2072-8050.

Dutch Protestantism is characterised by a hidden tension between a theocratic tradition and the endorsement of democracy. In this article it is argued that the idea of prophetic witness has its roots in the theocratic tradition, and that it is not compatible with the endorsement of democracy.

Keywords : prophecy; democracy; theocracy; christianity; christian discourse.
