When South Africa adopted the Green Economy Accord it joined many other countries that were adopting policies to support sustainable socioeconomic development through green economy investments. However, the South African economy remains reliant on the depletion of natural resources which places great strain on the environment. The authors of this book argue that substantial greening of the economy is essential for a transition to a sustainable society. This book argues for a review of South Africa's existing economic growth model. It assesses the challenges to and possibilities for a transition to a sustainable future.
Psalm of the Oppressed is a satire that uses sheep and hyenas to show exploitative relationships among people. It lampoons political corruption based on nepotism, greed, cronyism, egoism and myopia. It explores some strategies which all oppressed people can apply to bring about change. For, example the book admonishes all those oppressed to cultivate the culture of doubting and questioning things instead of accepting them hook, line, and sinker. It questions the status quo that seems to reconcile the oppressors and the oppressed without the former redressing the latter. Most importantly, the book seeks to challenge colonialism based on foreign culture, beliefs and systems that felled the ways of life of the oppressed. Essentially, the book champions the oppressed to seek their manumission through toppling the status quo.
The book marks the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda. The churches play a central role in the process of reconciliation in Rwanda. The theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer offers fresh impulses, generating intensive discussions in Rwanda, especially in view of the many parallels to his context in the Nazi period. Moreover, the underlying conflict ultimately remains unresolved, especially in Eastern Congo in the region of Lake Kivu, where fighting continues between former Hutu units, other militia groups and government troops. In such a context, the search for a "just peace" is central, and Bonhoeffer's peace ethics offer important orientational points of reference. The volume documents the Bonhoeffer conference "Reconciliation and a just peace - impulses for the African and European contexts", held in Kibuye, Rwanda, in February 2014. Some contributions are in French. Heinrich Bedford-Strohm is the head of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) and Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria. Pasal Bataringaya is Vice President of the Presbyterian Church in Rwanda. Traugott Jahnichen is Professor for Christian social ethics at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum.
