South Africa Collection No.2: Kairos in Question


The ‘KAIROS Document’ is one of the most significant contributions to the South African debate to emerge from grassroots theological reflection in the Province. This analytic response exposes some of the logical, theological and psychological fault lines in the document. The serious question is raised as to whether the church’s response to apartheid is not in itself a mirror of the same system. A higher level of systems analysis is called for, one which resolves the roots of splitting in the social process rather than simply shifting the pain in a conversion reaction from one side of the split to the other.
