This collection of interviews explores the role of religion in the lives of eminent South Africans who led the struggle against apartheid. Political, religious and cultural leaders share the beliefs and values that informed the moral position they adopted, often at great cost. From all ethnic, religious and political backgrounds, these men and women have shaped one of the greatest political transformations of the 20th century. What emerges from the interviews are reflections on all aspects of life in an embattled country. There are stories of the homelands and townships, and tales of imprisonment and exile. Dedicated communists relate their intense youthful devotion to Christianity; Muslim activitsts discuss the complexity of their relationships with their communities. As the respondents grapple with difficult questions about faith, politics and authority, they expose a more personal picture: of their daily lives, of their pasts and of the enormous conflicts that arise in a society that continually strains the moral fibre of its citizens.
