Theology in Conflict – Readings in Afrikaner Theology
The Theologies of F.J.M. Potgieter and B.J. Marais
©2006 Thesis 325 Pages
This book entails a close reading, in terms of text as well as context, of two Afrikaner theologians, F.J.M. Potgieter and B.J. Marais. They were both active during most of the apartheid era and supported this system, Potgieter for theological, Marais for purely practical reasons. A second so-called contrast reading is done with the help of two methodological concepts or phenomena, i.e. fundamentalism and deconstruction. Both readings reveal two theologies in conflict and contrast.
