The author reflects on Saayman's paper, ""New Testament Studies and Missiology in South Africa: Uneasy bedfellows?"" in this journal. He agrees with Saayman's negative evaluation of the role played by the separation of theological disciplines and the hegemony of historical criticism. He argues, though, that the main problem with historical criticism is the underlying worldview and philosophy, based on an enlightenment understanding of history.
