In this scholarly book, a century’s theology presented by the Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria is celebrated, examining perspectives on the past, present and future. The past is not only portrayed by means of societal and scientific contributions and achievements, but the authors also reflect on malfunctions, unfitting behaviour and disappointments of church and theology within the South African context over 100 years.
With regard to scientific and encyclopaedic content, the book focuses on the theological disciplines presented in the academic curricula: first the biblical sciences (Old and New Testament Studies), then the historical disciplines (Systematic Theology, Church History and Church Polity), and finally the practical disciplines (Practical Theology, Science of Religion and Missiology). The role of Religion Studies in a newly established Faculty of Theology and Religion not only enhances the diversity of interreligious tolerance and an atmosphere of dialogue, but it serves as platform to interconnect with the fields of Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences and other academic disciplines.
