Besinning oor die teologiese ensiklopedie van Kuyper met Kerkreg en Díakoniologie as parameters

B. Spoelstra
1993 In die Skriflig  
Abraham Kuyper of the Netherlands compiled an extensive encyclopaedia or structure in which the unity of theology as well as the diversity of subjects was given account for. Contemporary theological trends and developments prove the fact that the process by which theology is defined, its unity established, and by means of which subsidiary disciplines gain autonomy, is largely unexplored. By means of reference to two closely related subjects, the one more 'theoretical' and the other more
more » ... other more 'practical', this fact is clearly demonstrated. In conclusion the article suggests that theologians should reconstruct the house of theology as a science by paying scholarly attention to basic theories, different presuppositions among theologians and the criteria by which both the unity and the diversity in theology are determined.
