This article argues that Johan Cilliers is a public theologian of a particular kind. A review of his work shows that Cilliers views worship as “protest”. In this instance, protest is understood in etymological terms as a witness towards what is true. The article presents six contemporary characteristics of public theology. Having done so, it presents, and discusses, central aspects of Cilliers’ homiletic theology to illustrate in what manner he can be identified as a contemporary public theologian.
