A World With A Human Face

The fall of apartheid was one of the most exciting events in recent South African, or world, history. The struggle against institutionalized injustice allowed heroes to come to the fore and brought great hope for the future. The author here tells story of his youth under apartheid and his imprisonment on Robben Island, where he was made to build the prison that would later house Nelson Mandela.

Apartheid is vanquished, good triumphs over evil, the world celebrates! Now what? Many people in South Africa expected the Kingdom of God to arrive immediately; what they are now realizing is that rebuilding and developing this country is not easy and will not bring instant rewards. The former Archbishop of Cape Town is deeply involved in this difficult task, encouraging others to work for the future with hope and intelligence. Archbishop Ndungane begins by telling his own life story; he then addresses the World Bank, the international community, the people of South Africa, and most of all the Church - showing what people are doing and what they can do to build this country to what it could be. This book is a call to South Africans to work together to overcome the numerous challenges facing us. It is also an inspiration.

The author, Archbishop Ndungane, preceded Mandela in Robben Island and succeeded Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu as the Archbishop of Cape Town. The writing is unusually unapologetic.
