Overview

From Mahatma Gandhi to Bishop Desmond Tutu, religion has played a prominent role in the transformation of southern African societies. Emergence from the dark era of apartheid represents a beacon of hope for nations and peoples, rich and poor. South Africa's peaceful transition from such extreme conditions to its current efforts to establish a democracy will remain a model to be studied and emulated.

This volume presents a spectrum of religious views from throughout southern Africa, many with a passion and level of engagement often difficult to find in scholarly approaches. The range, focus, and timeliness of this collection makes this book a worthy study, not just for those interested in southern Africa, but for readers interested in how religious and spiritual insights can directly influence political, social, and cultural reality.
