    Abstract

    AUGUST, Keith  and  MüLLER, Julian C.. HIV and/or AIDS, migrant labour and the experience of God: A practical theological postfoundationalist approach. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.3, pp. 376-383. ISSN 0259-9422.

A postfoundationalist approach and the Seven Movements proposed by Müller were traced to present the research undertaken amongst migrant workers with HIV or AIDS. The practical theological investigation was developed from the praxis of HIV and AIDS and the question that it aimed to answer was: 'What is the experience of God in the lives of persons affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS?' Whilst it is understood that Christian belief has its own, exclusive integrity, if it is to be valid, it should be able to incorporate the different dimensions of our modern practice to give it the maximum level of meaning and significance.
