The Church Struggle in South Africa
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.
