About

I am currently working on a project entitled 'The (im)possibility of forgiveness?' It focusses on the politics of forgiveness among Black and White South African Christians in relation to social identity complexity theories, economic ethics, political ethics, and theological hermeneutics. My new book focusses on this topic Forster, D.A. 2017. The (im)possibility of forgiveness? An empirical intercultural Bible reading of Matthew 18:15-35. 1st ed. Vol. XI. (Beyers Naudé Centre Series on Public Theology). Stellenbosch, South Africa: SUN Press.
