Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a letter written by Knut Holter to Maarman Samuel Tshehla. The letter is in response to Maarman's paper Isaac A. Motaung, Conversion and Biblical Appropriation in Sesotho", which has both fascinated and challenged Knut. According to Knut, the most crucial question in relation to Motaung's conversion theology, is how the (Protestant, European) missionary concept of conversion interacted with traditional Mosotho culture and religion, and what Motaung's strategies may have been here. Although Maarman's paper touch on this question, Knut feels that more could have been made out of it. Maarman's paper points out that the Sesotho term tsokoloho communicates much more than the English equivalent 'conversion'; Knut says he would have liked to know what Motaung understood by this.

Keywords: Knut Holter; Maarman Samuel Tshehla; Motaung's conversion; tsokoloho
