VAN WYK, J.H.. From Calvinism to existentialism: A theological discussion with André P. Brink with reference to his memoirs. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.2-3, pp. 633-658. ISSN 1018-6441.

In this article the author attempts to develop a theological discussion with the well-known and world-famous writer André P. Brink, on the topics of Calvinism and existentialism. The question at stake is why Brink, who grew up in a South African Calvinist milieu, which was reinforced by his studies at the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education, turned his back on Calvinism and wholeheartedly embraced existentialism during his study in Paris. Why was Potchefstroom exchanged for Paris? Why was Christ replaced by Camus? Did Brink thoroughly compare Calvinism with existentialism or was his decision taken precipitately? This is the fascinating question which the author tries to unravel in this investigation.
