Some time ago the department of missiology received a position paper from Mindolo Ecumenical Foundation dealing with "The Churches and Change in Southern Africa". This paper has been an incentive to this review of some (Third World) Christian Literature on Southern Africa, and more particularly on the subject of violence/nonviolence.
Chapter 1 deals with the general question "What is violence?" and with the legitimacy of the use of power. Chapter 2 gives an account of the various (violent or nonviolent) ways that people within or outside these Southern African countries are propagating or practising in their struggle to combat violence.
