ON JUSTICE AND BEAUTY IN RECENT SOUTH AFRICAN HOMILETICS: A POST-COLONIAL REFLECTION
Keywords:Prophetic preaching, Aesthetic homiletics, Post-colonial theory
In recent South African homiletics, two major themes have experienced overwhelming attention: prophetic preaching and aesthetics. Prophetic preaching endeavours to seek social, political, and economic justice. Aesthetic homiletics considers beauty for preaching. In this article, I grapple with the convergences and divergences of justice and beauty in South African homiletics. With the hope of opening new avenues for future endeavours, I also reflect on both prophetic preaching and aesthetic homiletics from a post-colonial perspective.
