This work is a significant contribution to the narrative of Christianity in southern Africa within the framework of the struggle for liberation from colonial rule. By focusing on the story of a Protestant political and ecumenical leader, Eduardo Mondlane, of note within a dominantly Roman Catholic country, Faris explores the role of the churches and missions, especially the Swiss Mission, in the struggle for African Independence.

About Author

Robert Faris taught at the ecumenical Seminario Unido de Ricatla in Mozambique during a period of significant transition, from 1989 to 1994. His experience there led him into an examination of the largely untold story of the role of the Protestant churches in the country's struggle for liberation. He is currently Associate Minister at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Canada.
