Description

This widely acclaimed and influential volume by internationally noted theologian John de Gruchy is now available in a greatly revised and expanded 25th anniversary edition that places the monumental religious struggle against South African apartheid into a larger and instructive global setting. Fully updated, John De Gruchy's authoritative account of Christian complicity with and then resistance to one of the world's most notoriously repressive regimes holds indispensable lessons and "dangerous memories" for all concerned about evil, justice, and racial reconciliation.

Endorsements

"A challenging essay on the use of the gospel in the building of dehumanizing ideologies, and the necessity for Christian response to the crying needs of the Black population. — Missiology 'De Gruchy's is an extraordinarily well written book, revealing a profound personal knowledge of the subject. As exciting as a good novel, [it] is a book both for the beginner and for those long acquainted with South African affairs . . . ."
— Journal of Ecumenical Affairs
