This book gives insight into how a post-apartheid, post-church theologian reflects on his faith and way of life. He was formerly associated with RAU (now UJ) but is currently at Unisa. Since 2004 he participated in the New Reform Network and is convinced that Christians must incorporate new knowledge about their faith. They will have to think, belkieve and live differently.
Dr Ronnie Masilela became a Medical doctor at the age of 46. He had a very difficult childhood. His preseverance brought him where he is today. His lifestory is indeed an inspiration! He is also a motivational speaker.
Dreamcatchers are rare and wonderful people. They are not daydreamers. They are colourful people with a never-say-die attitude. Even though the outcome may sometimes be uncertain, they always keep the dream alive. They may take the long road, or the road less travelled, but they always return to the dream road. We came to know Ephraim, as we knew him, as a boy with the heart of a lion. Humble, diligent and committed, he always understood the true meaning of devotion. He is a man of integrity who made the motto of his school the mantra of his life: Perseverance is indeed the mother of success.
In memory of George Alfred Robertson
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherent the earth.
Our paths crossed more or less in 1983 when Ronnie applied for a broadcaster’s position at the Nguni Radio Station. He was an excellent soccer commentator. I admire him for studying after hours. I was very happy and proud when he received his degree. Ronnie is a hard worker with unbelievable perseverance. He is living example that dreams can come true.
