dc.description.abstractSome 20 years after the dawn of participative democracy there is little noticeable or substantial change in the living conditions of the average South African. The country remains divided by race, class and economics. Poverty, inequality and racial enmity remain looming challenges to human flourishing and social transformation. Some have begun to ask whether forgiveness for the sins of colonialism and apartheid are possible? This paper engages with the (im)possibility of forgiveness as it is presented in Matthew 18.15-35. In particular, it does so from the bilingual perspective of a Public Theological engagement with the text and its contemporary readers in South Africa. By reading the text from an integral All Quadrants All Levels (AQAL) approach this paper extrapolates a textured understanding of forgiveness that ‘possibilises’ the (im)possiblity of forgiveness between racially and socially divided groups of readers.en_ZA
