FROM THE EDITOR
AbstractThe annual symposium of the Department of Biblical Studies of the University of Stellenbosch this year dealt with the role of Christianity in South Africa in the next decade. The following questions were put to the four speakers:How can the Christian church make a dynamic, biblical and creative contribution to the benefit of our society, and therefore to the witness of faith?Given the unique circumstances of Southern Africa, what are the options for the Christian church in order to play a truly meaningful role?From what perspective on the future should we set our course for the next decade?Each speaker was requested to give his personal answer to these questions.
