A Genuine Re-Minding
Produces Genuine Re-Lifing
The language de Kock uses is different (regenerative theology) but the meaning is very similar to what we’ve come to know as spiritual formation.
But for de Kock it is more than a theoretical discussion. It’s personal. He lived regeneratively and shares his experience in Out of My Mind.
In this great read, life and theology come together. It combines biographical material – de Kock’s experience of transformation – with theology and history. The theology is modernist with an Apartheid flavor and the history focuses on the recent transformation of the South African society.
De Kock’s transformation is tied to and parallels that of South Africa, and the book gives a brief account of both.
One of my favorite words in the book is re-minding. It is beautiful but different way of saying repentance and de Kock’s case illustrates what that really means.
Because the book contained theology, it was a little dry in places but overall an insightful read.
The book is available in both hard cover and Kindle.
