Religion and Politics in South Africa: Christian Churches During the Apartheid Era

Mark R. Amstutz

What political role should the church play in society? How should it promote justice, and how should it respond to gross injustice? In this article, Mark Amstutz examines and assesses the political role of Christian churches in South Africa during the era of apartheid. Based on the South African experience, he illuminates dangers and possibilities in developing a faithful church witness in politics. Mr. Amstutz is Professor of Political Science at Wheaton College.
