Abstract

Faith without certainties? In conversation with Anton van Niekerk In this review article of Anton A van Niekerk’s recent book Geloof sonder Sekerhede: Hoe kan ek nog glo? (Faith without certainties: How can I still believe?) (2014, Kaapstad: Lux Verbi. ISBN: 9780796318992), three creative tensions in Van Niekerk’s book are identified and discussed. The tensions between orthodoxy and orthopraxy, between certainty and doubt and between scientific knowledge and the knowledge of faith. In each case, the question is raised to what extent Van Niekerk’s own emphases are context dependent.
