MASUKU, Tobias e NIEMANDT, Nelus. The ministry of Beyers Naude to the victims of oppression 1960 - 1994: A challenge to Christian mission in post-apartheid South Africa. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2074-7705. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v33i1.494.
Dr Beyers Naudé's ministry to the victims of apartheid between 1960-1994 was of missionary significance. His mission challenged the conservative or stereotype mission approaches of the church which were in line with the thinking of Edinburgh 1910. Dr Beyers Naudé in contrast, applied the spirit of Tambaram 1938 supporting what Saayman termed a 'comprehensive ministry'. His ministry challenged the mission of the church in post-apartheid South Africa during which the prophetic voice of the church has diminished and Ministers of Religion who were vocal against government injustices during Beyers Naudé's ministry are supporting the current post-apartheid South African government.
