May They Be One
Published 2015 | 272 Pages | ISBN 978-1-920620-09-7
This is definitely not an in-house account of one who grew up in the Roman Catholic Church, but rather the colourful pilgrimage of a man who had tested and tasted other waters before discovering his own comfortable place.
After a life distinguished by his leadership of the Archdiocese of Pretoria and much ecumenical and inter-faith work on behalf of the SACBC, it is inspiring to read about Archbishop Emeritus George Daniel`s retirement work as chaplain to the Sizanani home for disabled children. May they be one is a must for all lovers of autobiography and history. Many anecdotes and quips - humorous and serious, some very moving - add to its readability. The Christian Lives in Africa Series aims at documenting the trajectories of African Christians who left a mark in church and society. All genres including journals, memoirs, correspondence and oral history interviews are considered. The series will disseminate significant texts and documents which are not easily accessible. It will enrich and enlarge the knowledge of African Christianity.
