Sien, nadink, doen? Oor teologie en armoede
AbstractSee, judge, act? On theology and povertyIn a first section, it is briefly argued that and why poverty offers a major challenge to Christian theology in Africa and South Africa today, according to many. In a second section, the question how theology could respond to this challenge is considered in some more detail. It is suggested that the well-known method of see-judge-act could prove fruitful, but it is presented in the more complex and detailed version in which it was developed by the ethicist H E Tödt, as an iterative process of moral decision-making. In the third and final section, an overview is presented of the contributions in this volume, interpreted within in the see-judge-act framework, as reports on completed and in-progress research by mostly staff members and postgraduate students of the Stellenbosch Faculty of Theology.
