This collection of essays in theological ethics by one of the leading Reformed (theologians and) ethicists of his generation in South Africa is a welcome contribution to anyone – especially younger and upcoming generations – interested in how to theologize in a crucial period of our post-apartheid/colonial history. His work shows clearly some of the most important shifts, developments, features, and challenges concerning how theological ethics had changed in South Africa after 1994. Though this work is not per se in theology, but in ethics (see title), I deliberately use theology and ethics in tandem, because theology and ethics clearly cannot be separated in his mind. There is indeed an intimate reciprocal bond between his earlier Pathways in Theology – Ecumenical, African and Reformed (Stellenbosch: Sun Media, 2015) and this collection of Pathways in Ethics – Justice, Interpretation, Discourse and Economics. Just as there was a clear and particular (socio-political) ethical antenna in his earlier Pathways in Theology, so too is there a clear and particular living (Reformed, contextual, and confessional) theology in Pathways in Ethics.
