The author attempts an overview of missiological work in South Africa from the beginning early in the 20th century (but more specifically since the1950s) to the dawn of the third millennium. He relates how the academic discipline developed from an exclusively male Afrikaner and Reformed occupation, dealing with classical missionary themes like Church and Culture or Church and Mission to the much more inclusive and contextual approach of today. In the process many authors and works are referred to, and the changing scenery descriptionbed.
