DREYER, Wim A.. The Reformed Church and apartheid. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp.01-07. ISSN 2072-8050.

This contribution examines the changing attitude of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika (NHKA) towards apartheid, specifically since the Second World War. The NHKA's views started with a theological justification of apartheid and the complete identification of the church with Afrikaner nationalism, moving to a position of critical solidarity and eventually the rejection of apartheid and its own theological justification of apartheid in 2010.
