"John de Gruchy is one of the greatest and most respected South African theologians of the past five decades. His work has left an indelible mark on both the South African and international theological landscapes. In this book he describes his theological journey, revisiting core themes, periods and sources. This is an enriching read, as De Gruchy engages with some of the greatest theologians in the history of the church - notably John Calvin, Karl Barth, Karl Rahner, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Reinhold Niebuhr - as well as with a wide selection of his fellow South African theologians." Professor Cas Wepener, Head of the Department of Practical Theology, Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Pretoria
