• Value Meaning and Social Structure of Human Work

      Ike, Obiora (Peter Lang, 1986)
      "A fundamental dimension of man's life on earth is Human Work. It is the guiding thread which co-ordinates the multifarious activities of man in his attempt to build, renew and elevate the world. Central to the problem of work is man, for he is the being who works and who must be served by work and its products. The Encyclical Letter of John Paul II "Laborem Exercens" devotes adequate attention to the right understanding of the value meaning and social ordering of human work with a consideration of the problems and prospects of Work in a post-industrial society. What has "Laborem Exercens" to offer the African in post-colonial society?"

    • Vatican II and The 'Birth' of The Asian Church

      Chia, Edmund (EATWOT's International Theological Commission, 2012-06-26)
      "It is not too far-fetched to suggest that the Asian Church was born as a result of the Second Vatican Council. Until then what we had were the many Churches in Asia, rather than a singular and united Church of Asia. Moreover, even if in existence for more than five hundred years, these Churches in Asia were more like little colonies of their mother Churches in Europe. Not only did they have greater resemblance to Europe than to Asia, the Asian Church’s hierarchy was also more connected with the ecclesiastical officials in Europe than with other bishops in Asia. In fact, it was at the Second Vatican Council that many of the Asian bishops met and got to know one another for the first time. They maintained their relationship upon their return to Asia and subsequently toyed with the idea of setting up some sort of structure to help build upon the new spirit of Communion established amongst themselves."
    • Violence as development? A challenge to the church

      Christina Landman (AOSIS, 2011-06-01)
      Dullstroom-Emnotweni was the site of protests against the lack of service delivery by local government in 2009. The local leadership of the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa was confronted with challenges when its members got involved in acts of violence both from the side of the community and from the side of the police. Viewing itself as an asset to the community and an agent in its development towards health and wellbeing, the church was challenged by the situation in its prophetic capacity as well as in its relationship with the �state�. In an attempt to negotiate answers to the church�s relationship with the �state� in situations of violence, the uprising in Dullstroom-Emnotweni is used as a case study, and Calvin�s notion of the church as a world-transforming agent, the views of African women theologians on nonviolence, the practical piety of local religiousness, and the memory of systems of governance as �evil� are used as intertexts to define the church�s position vis-�-vis violence as an option for development. A position of caution is taken, a position in which the church retains both its political distance and its prophetic voice, remains true to its calling as an asset to community development, and condones violence cautiously when development is at stake.

    • VIOLENCE, LIBERATION AND THE LEGACY OF MODERNITY: TOWARDS A THEOLOGY OF PEACE

      Rathbone, Mark; North West University; Verhoef, Anné; North West University (Stellenbosch University. Faculty of Theology., 2014-01-23)
      Since the rise of democracy in South Africa violence has been erasing freedom and justice. In this article it is argued that the different theologies of Liberation, such as Black, Feminist, Ecological and other contextual theologies, might have perpetuated violence as part of the modernistic tradition they stood in. The irony is that the emancipatory motives of these theologies precipitate the oppression they are fighting. Theology therefore needs to revisit the modernist foundations of these theologies in a robust dialogue that challenges the limitations of modernity in order to discover emerging alternatives that nurture a theology of life, freedom and peace. David Hart proposes a theology where the theme of beauty, as essentially peace, adheres to every moment of the Christian story: A theology which celebrates a God whose being is beauty; whose works are an expression of his beauty; and in which the gospel is a story that persuades only by its beauty. This theology stands in contrast to the dichotomies of for example Black and African Theologies which are based on ‘modernity’s violent legacy’ – a reductionistic ontology.
