Includes a new chapter on Nelson Mandela's visit to Genadendal in 1995.

"This book re-framed my understanding of democracy and gave me new insight into how to negotiate with and teach political leaders from vastly different ideologies and faith communities. Cruywagen enables readers to better understand how Mandela levelled barriers between religions, traditions races and nations." Lisa Thompson Meddle, Director, African Sustainability Academy

"The role that the clergy of Madiba's primary spiritual home, the Methodist Church, and leaders such as bishops Don Dabula, Stanley Mogoba, Peter Storey, Mvume Dandala and Ziphozihle Siwa played in his life has been well documented by journalist Dennis Cruywagen." Thabo Makgoba, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town 

Journalist Dennis Cruywagen writes about Nelson Mandela's relationship to Christianity and how he balanced his Christian faith with traditional African beliefs and with his political views.
