Abstract

The purpose of this article is to contribute to an on-going call for more life-giving public prophetic preaching in the context of multidimensional social injustice in Africa by evaluating some sermons of Desmond Tutu as an African model for public prophetic preaching. Tutu has been one of South Africa's leading sociotheological praxis theologians esteemed for persistently calling for social justice, moral-ethical responsibility and social emancipation. With consistency, he confronts social injustice, exposing inequalities since the apartheid era and continues to do so in post-apartheid. Through evaluation of the prophetic discourse of such a great personality, this article proposes an African theology of public prophetic preaching for social justice and wholeness.
