Resumen

DE WET, Friedrich W. The role of prophetic action in public theology - The implications for addressing corruption in a context of sustainable development. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp. 01-08. ISSN 1018-6441.

After almost two decades of democratic rule in South Africa, patterns of withdrawal and uncertainty about the complexities involved in defining the contents, rationality and impact of the public role of the church in society seem to be prevalent. As unabated levels of corruption and its sustained threat to sustainable development point out, a long-awaited reckoning should take place - at least in the circles of South African churches from reformed origin - regarding its rich tradition of critical and transformational prophetic involvement in the public space. In this article, the author places different models for the public role of the church in the field of tension that is generated when the private and public spheres meet each other. The author anticipates different configurations that will probably form in this field of tension in the cases of respectively the Two Kingdoms Model, the Neo-Calvinist Approach and the Communicative Rationality Approach.
