John de Gruchy

John W. de Gruchy is emeritus professor of Christian studies at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.

I have returned again and again to Letters and Papers in search of insight into what it means to do theology today, especially in my own South African context. Whether my interest and inquiry has focused on theological issues, on the renewal of the church and its public responsibility or on history, literature, art and aesthetics, this remarkable collection has always provided much practical wisdom for people living in tough and uncertain times.
