BIBLICAL STUDIES IN SOUTH AFRICA? THE CASE FOR MORAL VALUES

Jeremy Punt

Abstract


At a recent funeral at Dimbaza Methodist Church (26 August 1995) for a student in Biblical Studies at the University of Fort Hare, one of the speakers said with reference to societal concerns: ‘If we silence the church, who will speak?’.  Perhaps one should go one step further: if we silence the Bible, how will the Church, an important community of believers, speak? Can the people of South Africa still speak, without the Bible?
