"In the tradition of Augustine's Confessions, and
as profoundly, John de Gruchy has combined
theological autobiography and pioneering
theological reflections into a book that has
taught me to name myself: Christian Humanist.
Simply put, the purpose of this book is not to
make us religious, but to make us more truly
human. This book presages a new springtime in
theology. Let it happen to you."
Walter Wink, Emeritus, Auburn Theological Seminary
"This lucid and engaging book is a much-needed testimony to the fact that true faith, Christianly understood, is about being human, not about being 'religious.' Drawing upon his own extensive experience of being a Christian teacher in a falsely but officially 'Christian' social context (Apartheid), de Gruchy presents a vision of Christian humanism that is as pertinent to our North American context as to his own possibly even more pertinent, because the dominant forms of Christian belief among us are about being religious, and often with a vengeance!"
Douglas John Hall, Professor of Christian Theology Emeritus, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec
