Overview

Reconciliation is Battle's highly original analysis of Bishop Tutu's theology of ubuntu-an African concept recognizing that persons and groups form their identities in relation to one another. This model proved successful in opposing apartheid in South Africa, and it also offers a Christian paradigm for resisting oppression wherever it appears.

Using a wide range of primary sources from Tutu, as well as a number of secondary sources, Battle shows Tutu as not only a dynamic preacher and at times an unwilling politician, but a genuinely committed theologian whose deepest roots are in prayer and protest.
