  • Botha, S.J. (Schalk Jacobus), 1936- (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 1998)

  • Strauss, P.J. (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 1998)
    This article aims at demonstrating that Calvin's grasp of the message of Romans 13 in its reference to the state is highly relevant for the present South Africa. This includes the belief that the authority of rulers is ...
  • Potgieter, Pieter C. (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 1998)

  • De Kock, Petri; Koekemoer, J.H. (Johannes Hendrik), 1935- (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 1998)

  • Beukes, M.J. du P. (Mattheus Johannes du Plessis) (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 1998)
    With this study I want to demonstrate that children, on the grounds of Biblical, dogmatical and church law are no less the property of God than adults. Because children are a complete part of God's church, they should ...
