From our side is a collaborative effort of younger scholars in southern Africa and the Netherlands who are interested in the relationship between development and ethics, from a Christian point of view. The 17 chapters that make up the book have been produced through a unique set of partnerships, in which the authors have intentionally worked with practitioners who are working in the development arena. The essays were also shared in a number of settings with the authors, so that they have also benefited from this creative partnership process, and these partnerships have embraced people in both the South and the North, signaling a desire for a global dialogue led by Africa on matters which have a strong impact upon the continent. An introduction and epilogue, together with the guest foreword from Archbishop Ndungane draw the themes together and signal the contribution of the book to wider debates. Throughout the text, the reader is reminded of the contribution of the Christian faith to matters of development and ethics.
