The adoption of a new confession is a rare event in church history. This book offers an astute inside look at the contemporary Belhar Confession, which arose out of the struggle against apartheid and was drafted in 1982 by the Dutch Reformed Mission Church in South Africa. With clarity and passion Piet Naudé presents and comments on the Belhar texts, exploring the historical background and theological significance of Belhar, while discussing its continuing reception throughout the world. In addition, Naudé also relates the Belhar Confession's relevance to such current global issues as gender relations, economic justice, and the HIV/AIDS crisis. Neither Calendar nor Clock is the only up-to-date English-language book on the Belhar Confession which ultimately shows how this singular African confession powerfully articulates the gospel for the universal church today.
