    Gateway to the Future … Oopmaak van Die Hekke … Transformation in the Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria.Graham A. Duncan - 2016 - Hts Theological Studies 72 (4):1-12.
    The only constant in theological education is change, despite brave attempts to hold the tide back in some quarters. Yet, Western-based theological education remains the norm globally. The Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria exemplifies this norm despite its commitment to Africanisation. This article will consider transformation through the lens of the leadership of Prof. Johan Buitendag, who has led the transformation initiative from his own shared leadership perspective as dean since 2010. Change in the faculty will be (...)

    Tiyo Soga at the Intersection of ‘Universes in Collision’.Graham A. Duncan - 2018 - Hts Theological Studies 74 (1):1-12.
    Tiyo Soga, the first black minister ordained in Scotland by the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland in 1856, was, by any standards, a conflicted character. He stood both in and between two worlds and suffered from the vulnerability that emerged from his dual allegiances. Yet he made a significant contribution to the mission history of South Africa, particularly through his early influence on the development of black consciousness and black nationalism, which were to make significant contributions to black thinking in (...)

    The Benefits and Dangers for Churches and Ministry Institutions to Work in a Regulated Environment, with Reference to Professionalising Religious Practice Via South African Qualifications Authority and the National Qualifications Framework Act.Graham A. Duncan - 2018 - HTS Theological Studies 74 (4):1-13.
    Since 1994 and the coming of democracy to South Africa there has been a concerted attempt to develop a coherent, unified educational system that will redress the inequities of the apartheid systems. Significant to this ongoing process is the field of higher education, where relevant legislation has been enacted in order to bring coherence and consistency to the education system in the public and private sectors. Significant issues have arisen with regard to the provision made by private religious educational institutions, (...)

  7. Positioning LGBTIQ as the Human Sexuality Agenda for Black Theology of Liberation – Reflection on Vuyani Vellem’s Black Theology of Liberation.Graham A. Duncan - 2020 - HTS Theological Studies 76 (3).
    Vuyani Vellem was an outstanding Black Theologian of Liberation, who was approaching the zenith of his career when he died at the age of 50 years in 2019. This paper begins with a personal memoir to Prof. Vellem and a recognition that there is a lacuna in BTL relative to human sexuality issues. The contemporary global context of the human sexuality debate is discussed before the task of BTL in Vellem’s thinking is outlined. This is followed by an examination of (...)

  8. The Bantu Presbyterian Church in South Africa and Ecumenism, 1940–1999.Graham A. Duncan - 2019 - Hts Theological Studies 75 (4):1-7.
    From 1940, ecumenical developments in the Presbyterian/Congregational corpus in Southern Africa became more tortuous and complex, with an expansion of the number of denominations involved in union negotiations to include the Bantu Presbyterian Church of South Africa, the Congregational Union of South Africa, later the United Congregational Church of South Africa, the Presbyterian Church of Southern Africa and the Tsonga Presbyterian Church. The problem statement centres around the complex situation that despite substantial similarities in doctrine, liturgy and polity, as well (...)

  9. The Changing Face of Colonial Education in Africa: Education, Science and Development.Graham A. Duncan - 2022 - HTS Theological Studies 78 (1).
    This review article enters into discussion with Peter Kallaway, in his work, The Changing Face of Colonial Education in Africa: Education, Science and Development, who raises serious issues related to the historical development of South Africa’s education during the first half of the 19th century and its current situation and future prospects in the broader context of African education. Education is a dynamic process that encompasses the formal and informal sectors historically. In South Africa, the informal was the norm for (...)

    This article will investigate why Mission Councils continued to exist for so long after the so-called autonomous churches were established in South Africa following the upsurge ofEthiopian and other types of African initiated churches at the close of the 19th century inopposition to the European sending churches. It will also examine how the emergingPartnership in Mission policy affected the process of integration of church and mission. Usingthe closing years of the Church of Scotland South African Joint Council as a casestudy, (...)

    Hated Without a Reason – Contending with Issues of Human Sexuality in a South African Ecclesial Context: A Case Study.Graham A. Duncan - 2021 - HTS Theological Studies 77 (4):1-8.
    The mainline churches in South Africa are in turmoil internally as a result of divisions arising out of issues related to human sexuality. These issues have serious implications for these churches, church families within them, and the relationship of these churches with one another and with the state. There is little open space for debate as discussions are hampered by a variety of theological perspectives on the authority of scripture, some of which are fixed and absolutised. This is a matter (...)

    This is the second part of an investigation of the subject of injustice relating to the issue of human sexuality in a mainstream South African Christian denomination. The first paper, entitled 'Hated without a reason I - Contending with issues of human sexuality in a South African ecclesial context: A case study of the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa', sought to trace the development of the issue from 1999 to 2016.
