    Land, Liturgy & Life: overture to the "comma" and the "and" in a very small dogmatics
    11 Aug 2014

    This contribution observes a Trinitarian logic in the theme of 'Land, Liturgy and Life' addressed at the 2013 annual meeting of the Theological Society of South Africa. The Trinitarian mystery needs to be protected with the doxological language of the liturgy.

    The legacies of the Natives Land Act of 1913
