One hundred years ago Bishop Colenso was excommunicated because of his liberal critical views on the inspiration and authority of the Bible. But while in South Africa he worked strenuously for social and political reform. 2003 will mark the revocation of his excommunication in a ceremony in South Africa and this book commemorates that event. It is divided into sections on African Culture, Bible, Theology and Social History and contains contribution from English, Dutch and South African scholars. It will appeal not only to the biblical scholar and Christian theologian but also to anyone interested in the 19th century conflict of theology and reason and the struggle against colonial exploitation.Incuadi Yokuqala Yabafundayo (First Book for Readers) (Port Natal:American Zulu Mission Press). 1848 lVangeli E Li ... 1883 IBaible Eli Ingcwele NgokwesiZulu (The Holy Bible in the Zulu Language) (New York: American Bible Society).
