Trevor Huddleston: A Life

Front Cover
St. Martin's Press, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 295 pages
An Anglican monk and a charismatic leader of the anti-Apartheid movement, Trevor Huddleston was a friend and hero to many, including Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu, and Desmond Tutu. His victory over the racist politics of the nationalist government in South Africa transformed the history and politics of an entire continent. Drawing on the extensive private archive of Huddleston's correspondence, speeches and sermons, Robin Denniston examines the political and spiritual life of one of Britain's most controversial heroes. From his life-changing twelve years in the diocese of Johannesburg, his years as bishop of Masasi in the newly independent Tanzania, and his decade as Bishop of Stepney, Huddleston redefined what the Church of England was capable of being.
