Abstract

TSHEHLA, Maarman S.. Your sister in Babylon sends her love: Towards prophetic solidarity in post-apartheid South Africa. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.3, pp. 01-06. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v70i3.2789.

How does a self-respecting Christian from Galilee who now finds himself based near the seat of empire relate to power in light of his faith? How are his admonishments, especially those which relate to the public arena, to be appropriated by those living on the periphery of the empire? I reflect on these questions from the vantage point of a South Africa in which on the one hand erstwhile prophets are being haunted by the vagaries of power and on the other the Church is apparently as powerless as never before.
