Book by Elphick Richard

Críticas:

The Equality of Believers is a well-structured and elegantly written account of the role of religion in South African racial struggles. By blending intellectual history and institutional history in the South African context, Elphick constructs an inspiring approach to the study of race, religion, and nation-building in South Africa.--Lindsey Maxwell, Florida International University "H-Net Reviews " "Elphick makes a persuasive case for using religion as an analytical framework to elucidate larger questions about the relationship between missions and empire, and religion and apartheid." --Fiona Vernal, University of Connecticut "IJAHS " "This fine book tells us why and how the racial politics of South Africa owed so much to Protestant missions, both English-speaking and Afrikaner." --John Stuart, Kingston University London "American Historical Review " Richard Elphick's book tells the engrossing and very tragic tale of how the missions policy of the Afrikaans churches led them to sacrifice their most precious possession, their faith, on the altar of Afrikaner political survival through its instrument, apartheid.--Hermann Giliomee, Stellenbosch University, author of The Afrikaners: Biography of a People (Virginia) The Equality of Believers is an original and substantial contribution to the study of the history of Christian missions in southern Africa. Elphick has accumulated, assembled, and analyzed a mass of data with considerable insight and conviction. He is not only at home in the historical detail but also with the theological and cultural issues that are central to the discussion. The scholarship is impressive and the outcome is persuasive, and the book is undoubtedly the most important contribution to the debate to date.--John W. de Gruchy, University of Cape Town, author of Christianity, Art, and Transformation: Theological Aesthetics in the Struggle for Justice The Equality of Believers is a pioneering work that treats many topics not dealt with previously. The scholarship is impeccable, and the result is a very rich and detailed study that is beautifully written. The book rests on an enormous base of evidence, archival and other, and is clearly the product of many decades of work. An immense contribution to the field.--Christopher Saunders, University of Cape Town, coauthor of South Africa: A Modern History "The Equality of Believers" is an original and substantial contribution to the study of the history of Christian missions in southern Africa.
