ANDREW MURRAY PRIZE FOR THEOLOGICAL PUBLICATIONS IN AFRIKAANS

Malcolm de Roubaix’s book, Hoop, heling en harmonie. Dink nuut oor siekte en genesing (Hope, healing and harmony. Thinking anew about illness and healing), published by Penguin Books, is die winner of the Andrew Murray Prize 2021. The adjudicators write: “In this exceptionally interesting book the writer challenges his readers to see and solve the medical and health issues of our day in a radically holistic way. For De Roubaix this means challenges about the meaning of life and everything that is life, but always within the holistic, specifically interdisciplinary, context of theology and science. The most significant statement for the optimal understanding of the text is surely De Roubaix’s conviction that there’s no “ultimate” answer to the “deeper” meaning of pain, illness, and suffering. The writer is also convinced that illness is in the first place a very personal experience which effects a person existentially as it radically influences one’s interaction with the world. An exhaustive interreligious perspective leads involuntarily to the insight that there is not much difference – philosophically – in how a responsible Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or Jew, each in their own context, will approach illness. Hope, healing, and harmony are especially Christian and theological “markers” and therefore so relevant.”
