dc.description.abstractIn the strenuous relation between church and state, it is noted that the church tries to establish its influence and dominion in politics, thus overriding the state, or the state tries to interfere in church functions or diminish the influence of the church in the public sphere. And so, the tussle for control and influence in the public sphere between the religious and the secular remains a growing concern. With this continual disparity, how can contemporary Christians, who are part of the church, hope to effectively engage in the public sphere, which is predominantly influenced and governed by the secularised state? This thesis will seek to critically examine three theological components, namely radical orthodoxy, public theology and their understanding of church and state, and analyse them in light of Abraham Kuyper’s Sphere Sovereignty which calls for the separation and autonomy of all spheres in society.en_US
