BOTHA, Nico. An encounter between black theology and reformed theology: The involvement of Govender, Mazamisa, Mofokeng and Ntoane. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.2, pp.69-81. ISSN 2412-4265. http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2412-4265/2015/347.
During the nineteen eighties numerous meaningful booklets were published by Christian groups on social analysis and against an apartheid society. Less known, but extremely powerful, four black Dutch Reformed theologians wrote similar sophisticated doctorate theses. This article delineates the gist of these messages to honour Takatso Mofokeng. The urgent question is also whether these alarming analyses and bone-cutting witnesses would be relevant for the contemporary situation regarding the horrific violence, un-arrested poverty, unemployment, rampant 'official' theft and crime. The outcome is that this type of hermeneutics keeps the dream of freedom alive and rekindles hope towards renewal.
