South African theologians have long been powerful voices in
the hard-fought political transition from a repressive
apartheid regime to a young democracy. A key question is,
What should the public role of churches be in this
democracy? This book considers answers given by South
African theologians, beginning with an historical review of
approaches taken during apartheid and tracing their
development in the two decades following. The simultaneously
emerging global discussion on public theology has
been one important point of reference, offering a number of
frameworks for thinking about the churches‘ public role.
