Abstract

It is my privilege to express deep gratitude to Douglas Fromm for his excellent summary of the South African context of the Belhar Confession. He has provided us with not only a great deal of historical information, but with some cogent arguments for the inclusion of the Belhar in our own confessional identity. The conversation about the status of the Belhar in the Reformed Church in America (RCA) should begin with this question: What does the Belhar Confession have to do with us?
