Description
In the first book of its kind, an acclaimed South African journalist and former parliamentary spokesperson for the ANC shares how Nelson Mandela balanced his Christian faith with his political views, exploring how the beloved leader reconciled his own beliefs with the hard truth that religion had often been used as a tool to oppress his people.
Description
Cruywagen traces the spiritual component of Nelson Mandela's life, from his youth in a traditional Thembu village to his education at Wesleyan and Methodist mission schools to his time as an activist to his period on Robben Island and the years thereafter. He traces the ways in which Mandela balanced Christianity with tradition Africian beliefs and with his political views. -- adapted from jacket.
