This article consists of three parts. In the first part a story is told of Johan
Heyns and some of the men who shared with him the final year of theological
training at the University of Pretoria in 1951. In the second part
prolegomena to the telling of a new story of Johan Heyns are explained.
Finally this new story is told by using the voices of six people - students,
colleagues and family - who interrupt each other's voice on Johan Heyns,
thereby undermining the popular ideal amongst local church historians that
religion biography can and should recreate a complete and consistent
image of a person's (moral) reality.
