Synopsis

Njongonkulu Ndungane shared in that fight for freedom. Here, he tells of his youth under apartheid and of his imprisonment on Robben Island, where he was made to build the prison that would later house Nelson Mandela. During his captivity, he came to realise that apartheid's end would not bring a perfect society and that new South Africa would need heroes of a different kind -- those willing to challenge poverty. This book is a call to South Africans and the international community to work together to overcome social injustice, adverse economic forces and the weight of history to build a just society fit for all. The first section is autobiographical, tracing the author's development from a political activist in the anti-apartheid movement to an archbishop of the church. The second deals with specific issues in the world today that Ndungane believes it essential for the church to address: poverty and the international financial system, the lessons learned in the truth and reconciliation process in South Africa, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and practical advice for addressing injustice, locally and globally.

The third section deals with church unity, and African identity and Christianity, ending with a discussion of central issues before the Anglican communion today.
