oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Section 2 - Dialogues with Willem Saayman's missiology. A discourse between Saayman's contextual missiology and some tenets of Reformed theology

Volume 30, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



In an interview with Saayman (a tight lipped interview, not giving away its purpose) he alluded to two aspects of Reformed theology which he still finds attractive, namely a Scriptural theology and the notion of Christ's reign of justice in the world. He explained that, in his own missiology, he has always tried to take the Bible seriously as an important source of theology. Not in a literal or biblicist sense of the word, nor in the sense of quoting a text for each and every situation. No, in the sense of the critical interaction between the Bible and particular contexts. He has also always thought that the notion of Christ's reign was an important issue for Christian mission.
