oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - From liberation to democracy: Theologies of bread and being in the new South Africa
The author discusses the role of the church in South African society in the past, present and future. In the past the role of the church was connected to the divisions in society. He identifies three kinds of theology in apartheid South Africa: state theology, prophetic theology and church theology. State theology tried to maintain the status quo, prophetic theology was in opposition to the state, while church theology emphasised reconciliation - bringing the two sides together.
