dc.description.abstractBOOK BLURB: The aim of this book is to explore how contemporary notions of reconciliation as a process of building, rebuilding and transorming relationships in the pursuit of a "just peace", or God's shalom, may be applied not only to "race" but also to gender relations in post-apartheid and post-TRC South Africa. After highlighting links between the past, the present and the future with regards to such relations in wider South Africa society, critical questions are asked about the churches as spaces and agents of a gener-inclusive shalom. The focus is on two crucial issues: the potential of South African churches to be "safe spaces" for abused women and children, and their potential to be spaces for women and men to encounter each other in non-stereotypical roles. This critical examination is inspired by interviews with, and writings by, South African women active in various church environments and/or in the field of theology and religious studies. What lessons and challenges do they present with regard to " beig church in South Africa today"?en_ZA
