The author examines two interpretative keys: that of Contextualisation and that of Inculturation. The study shows that both models can be used to reveal complementary conclusions for Evangelisation in the South African context.

The emergence of Prophetic Theology, of Black theology, of African Theology, of Coping/Healing Churches and of a Pastoral Plan in the catholic Church are five contextual manifestations of a single process in which the Church is rooting itself in the South African soil thus moving from being a settler-mission Church to a local Church. The first part of the study is an attempt to present a description of each of the five cited phenomena as they are manifesting themselves within the South African context. The second part of the study attempt to interpret these phenomena in terms of a theological hermeneutic key. The author examines two interpretative keys: that of Contextualisation and that of Inculturation. The study shows that both models can be used to reveal complementary conclusions for Evangelisation in the South African context.
