Faith and Courage
So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009 at the request of his wife, Graça Machel. This marked the start of a moving relationship between southern Africa’s Anglican leader and Mandela until his death in 2013.
Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alexandra Township, Johannesburg as the son of a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and spending time with Mandela. He shares his feelings about his pastoral approach to this world icon, and the influence Mandela had on his ministry to church and nation.
What did praying with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was Madiba’s spirituality? In trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa’s spiritual life.
A riveting account of one young black South African who beat the odds to become head of
the Anglican church and courageously holds the government’s feet to the fire.
A moving tribute to Madiba whom Archbishop Makgoba celebrates as an exemplar of the
faith and courage which should inspire all those who would be makers of history!
Archbishop Makgoba was a pillar of strength in our spiritual lives during Madiba’s last days.
A true moral compass who brought calm and strength through his words.
