Churches and Christians in South Africa find themselves at the crossroads in trying to read the "signs of the time" and engage in concrete forms of action that anticipate the new society to be built on the ruins of apartheid. The unifying factor in this collection of essays is that all the writers are involved at some level in the project of liberation inasmuch as they are mostly theological educators. Steps are taken to actively engage contemporary processes and participate in historical change so that knowledge is a transformatory instrument. Several propositions concerning the church in mission and evangelism are treated in such a way that they resonate strongly with "the new approach to the Christian mission" as propounded by Professor Willem Krige. These essays were originally intended to form a Festschrift honouring Professor Krige, and the themes taken up should remind readers of some of the fundamental issues which Krige wrestled with as a Christian in the South African context.
