    Conversio Ad Docelitam: John Calvin on Conversion and Being a Christian.Wim A. Dreyer - 2014 - HTS Theological Studies 70 (3):01-05.
    This contribution describes John Calvin's understanding of what it means to be a Christian. When Calvin 'converted' to the Reformation in the early 1530s, the term 'Protestant' did not exist. There was no systematic body of doctrine or a confession you could put your signature under. So Calvin became a 'lover of Christ'. The unity with Christ was a central part of his theology but also his personal spirituality. Calvin also understood his own conversion as a 'conversio subita ad docelitam', (...)

    Teaching Historical Theology at the University of Pretoria – Some Introductory Remarks.Wim A. Dreyer - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (4):1-6.
    The Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria went through a process of restructuring, resulting in the amalgamation of Dogmatics, Christian Ethics, Church History and Church Polity into one department under the name ‘Systematic and Historical Theology’. This contribution reflects only on the one aspect, namely Historical Theology. The point is made that a name change could not mean ‘business as usual’, but should be regarded as an opportunity to re-imagine the content and structure of Historical Theology. This is (...)

    There is Only One Church! Albert Geyser’s Ecclesiology in Delayed Action.Wim A. Dreyer - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (1).
    A.S. Geyser was professor of New Testament at the University of Pretoria from 1946 to 1961, when he accepted an appointment at the University of the Witwatersrand. He was one of the most active and outspoken critics of apartheid and played a leading role in the establishment of the Christian Institute and the appointment of Beyers Naude as the first director of the Institute. However, Geyser received very little attention either in church history or in the history of South Africa. (...)

    The Real Crisis of the Church.Wim A. Dreyer - 2015 - HTS Theological Studies 71 (3).
    What is the real crisis of the church? Very often, clergy, churches and congregations experience a ‘crisis’ only when membership is in decline, resulting in financial hardship. Crisis is limited to stress which the church as institution experiences when structures, finance and traditions are under pressure. In this contribution, the point is argued that the real crisis of the church is not to be found in institutional challenges, but in the inability of the church to be what it already is. (...)

    John Calvin as ‘Public Theologian’ in View of His ‘Commentary on Seneca’s de Clementia’.Wim A. Dreyer - 2018 - HTS Theological Studies 74 (4):1-8.
    During the 16th century, Europe underwent fundamental sociopolitical changes, which challenged theologians and the church to respond theologically. In light of the celebration of the Reformation and the theme of this conference, this contribution presents Calvin as a ‘public theologian’. To this purpose it is necessary to define ‘public theology’, describe the sociopolitical changes which challenged theologians during the 16th century, and lastly to focus on Calvin’s contribution to the discourse. Because of the vast amount of material that is available, (...)

    Calvin, Van Lodenstein and Barth: Three Perspectives on the Necessity of Church Reformation.Wim A. Dreyer - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (5):53-65.
    During 2017, churches with their roots in the 16th-century Reformation, will be celebrating the legacy of the Reformation. It affords theologians and churches the opportunity to reflect on the principles of the Reformation and its relevance at the start of the 21st century. This contribution reflects on the question of the necessity of church reformation, based on three texts from different periods in the history of the church. Firstly and primarily, Calvin's 'De necessitate reformandae ecclesiae' of 1543 sheds light on (...)

    ‘Marginalia’ by die teologie van Natie van Wyk.Wim A. Dreyer - 2018 - HTS Theological Studies 74 (4):1-7.
    'Marginalia' are notes made in the margins of a book. It could be general comments, glosses or scholia. For centuries marginalia was considered an important scholarly activity, almost as important as the original text. The famous marginalia on the text of Homer's Iliad dates back to the 5th century before Christ. Some of the most important theologians in history kept themselves busy by adding marginalia to texts. Luther's marginalia on the text of Paul's Letter to the Romans is a good (...)

    Die Ontstaan En Belang van Calvyn Se Eerste Drie Publikasies.Wim A. Dreyer - 2017 - HTS Theological Studies 73 (5):40-52.
    Gedurende 2017 herdenk Lutherse en Calvinistiese kerke die Kerkhervorming wat 500 jaar gelede plaasgevind het. Hierdie hoofstuk fokus op Johannes Calvyn se eerste publikasies, dit wil sê publikasies wat verskyn het voordat hy met sy bediening in Genève begin het. Die fokus val op die drie belangrikste publikasies in hierdie periode, te wete sy 'Kommentaar op Seneca se De Clementia', die 'De Psychopannychia' en die eerste uitgawe van sy 'Christianae Religionis Institutio'. In hierdie eerste drie publikasies is 'n jeugdige Calvyn (...)

    From Proto-Missional to Mega-Church: A Critique of Ecclesial ‘Growth’ in Korea.Yongsoo Lee & Wim A. Dreyer - 2018 - HTS Theological Studies 74 (4):1-7.
    In the last couple of decades, the Korean church experienced a loss of credibility as well as a decrease in membership. The premise of this contribution is that the mega-church phenomenon in Korea contributed to this state of affairs. Many Korean churches, influenced by dramatic sociopolitical and economic changes, developed a distorted understanding of its nature and mission. Korean churches began to compete against each other to grow bigger. An institutional ecclesiology and ecclesiocentric understanding of mission formed the basis of (...)

    The Priesthood of Believers: The Forgotten Legacy of the Reformation.Wim A. Dreyer - 2020 - HTS Theological Studies 76 (4):1-7.
    This contribution revisits the priesthood of believers. It is placed within the current discourse on relevant ecclesiologies and ecclesial praxis for 21st-century reformed churches. Luther placed much emphasis on the priesthood of believers in his rejection of the Roman Catholic differentiation between ordained clergy and laity. This was taken up by Calvin, but not to the same extent as Luther. The limited attention given to the priesthood of believers in reformed ecclesiologies, confessions and church orders is challenged in the current (...)
