The Christian Citizen in a Multi-Racial Society - a Report of the Rosettenville Conference July 1949
Christian Council of South Africa, Strand, Cape Province. 1949, First Edition. Softcover. 107 pages (complete). An assured copy. A few years before the Dutch Reformed Churches persuaded themselves of a Christian Ideology to support Apartheid at their conference in Pretoria, the South African Churches met, just after the imposition of apartheid, to discuss a Christian reaction and role. Albert Luthuli's historic address to the conference is included. As an insight into the early intellectual and religious resistance to apartheid, this booklet is invaluable. This copy includes many newspaper clippings, dated from the early 1950s, from newspapers such as: "The Rand Daily Mail", "The Star", "The Cape Argus", "The Economist" amongst others. These are in very good condition. The covers of the booklet have some scuffing, handling wear and marks, user creasing. They are benign and patient. The contents have some occasional annotations. Pages 66-67 have tanning. Otherwise, the pages are clean, clear, comfortable, sure, certain, amenable. fk. Good/No Jacket.

VAN WYK, F J (ED)
Christian Principles in Multi-Racial South Africa : A Report on the Dutch Reformed Conference of Church Leaders, Pretoria, 17-19 November, 1953
Voortrekkerpers, Beperk, Johannesburg (printers). 1954, First Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 185 pages (complete). A neat copy. By 1953 the main Afrikaner churches of the Dutch Reformed Churches were intent on providing theological and Christian support for the policy of apartheid. The conference was called for November 1953. Here, despite the inclusion of liberal, equality-progressive speakers from other churches, the Conference set a line that the Dutch Reformed churches did not cross for several decades. As is noted in the 'Routledge Religions of South Africa' this conference ensured that "the Dutch Reformed Church had not only produced an apartheid theology, but had in effect rewritten the Bible as an apartheid Bible." [see the Rev Brink's paper from the conference]. This copy is earnest in nature and aspect. The banal dustjacket has wear, marks and scuffing from storage and handling. It is secure. The green boards are healthy and tight. Within, the contents are in excellent condition. They are clean, clear, very confident, very certain, most diligent. Essential reading for any student of the role of Christianity in Apartheid South Africa. fk. Very Good/Fair.
