    Re-Visiting the Notion of Deep Incarnation in Light of 1 Corinthians 15:28 and Emergence Theory.Wessel Bentley - 2016 - Hts Theological Studies 72 (4):1-8.
    Niels Hendrik Gregersen's 'Deep Incarnation' is opening up possibilities for engagement between science and theology. Recent discoveries, like that of Homo naledi, raise questions about how inclusive a Christian doctrine of Incarnation is. Is Jesus only God incarnate for Homo sapien sapiens, or is the incarnation inclusive of preceding hominid species as well? Does the incarnation stretch beyond the hominid line? This chapter engages Gregersen's understanding of Deep Incarnation in light of 1 Corinthians 15:28 and emergence theory. It proposes that (...)

    Living a Good Life?: Considering Technology and Pro-Social Behaviour.Wessel Bentley - 2019 - Hts Theological Studies 75 (1).
    This article explores the notions of a good life as understood in religion and psychology. The markers of altruism and empathy are identified. The effect the use of social media has on brain chemistry is then explored and used in trying to answer the question as to whether technology is hampering our ability to live a good life. The notions of the rise of narcissism and the decline in empathy are also discussed.

    Schleiermacher: God-Consciousness and Religious Identity.Wessel Bentley - 2019 - Hts Theological Studies 75 (4):1-7.
    The world sees a shift in people’s religious identity, moving away from the orthodox centre to either the extremes of religious fundamentalism or the religious identity of being ‘spiritual, but not religious’. This article investigates the latter religious identity and asks whether Schleiermacher’s theology may be of any value to it. The argument is that the context of disillusionment experienced during the Enlightenment and South Africa’s transition to a post-secular constitutional democracy created the environment for a religious search beyond orthodoxy.

    Structural Transformation and Democratic Public Spaces: Reflections on Habermas and the 2014 Tshwane State of the Capital City Address.Wessel Bentley - 2014 - Hts Theological Studies 70 (3):01-08.
    Judging by the immense global academic interaction with his work, Jurgen Habermas's social theory, with particular reference to structural transformation of the public sphere and democracy, is one of the most constructive models for understanding the role and function of citizens in forming healthy societies. This article investigates the recent 2014 Tshwane State of the City Address in light of Habermas's theory. Is Habermas's theory relevant to the South African urban context? Do African cities like Tshwane subscribe to the Habermasean (...)
