Recommends it for: South African missiology students I wish I had had this book 30 years ago, when I began to study missiology at the University of South Africa (Unisa), as it would have helped to make sense of much of the course material that went right over my head/5(1). When we contemplate ecumenism in South Africa in the twentieth century, we often automatically think of the outstanding work of the South African Council of Churches during the years of apartheid. However, it had two precursors in the General Missionary Conference of South Africa (–36) and the Christian Council of South Africa (–68).

ecumenism was bound up with the transfer of property and power from missions to the “native” churches they had founded, but in South Africa, as Thomas has demonstrated, ecumenism retarded indigenisation and prolonged missionary power. On a typical mission field, the distinction between mission and church was fairly clear.   (32) Ecumenism is alive and well in local communities throughout South Africa. Whilst maintaining their distinct denominational identities, lay Christians seem to have no problem in joining hands in prayer groups, marches, funerals, Bible study groups, community structures, governing bodies, soup kitchens, trade union meetings, etc.

Get this from a library! Christian resistance to apartheid: ecumenism in South Africa [Daryl M Balia]. A special journal of the World Council of Churches (WCC), the Ecumenical Review, has challenged the Church in Africa to do away with denominational thinking and instead incorporate ecumenical one.
