Abstract

By making explicit the perspective on infinity in terms of which Reformed religion will be viewed here, I will be able to explain my understanding of both the failure and the dignity of that branch of Christianity, and of its presence in South Africa. I shall neither protest loyally from within the confines of Reformed thinking and practice, nor berate from without, but map it on a wider metaphysical-mystical landscape. That will enable us to indicate its limitations as well as its redeeming qualities. I believe that Reformed religion may be re-assembled on the other side of such a critical interpretation. For that religion, if narrowed down dogmatically (as has traditionally been the case in South Africa), has bad consequences - not least for Reformed Christianity itself On the other hand, the Reformed view - if opened, as will be suggested here - may add significantly to the wider human religious discourse.
