Trevor Huddleston was perhaps the last great missionary to Africa, whose self-discovery in Sophiatown, the largest of Johannesburg's black suburbs, saw him emerge as one of the post-colonial heroes inthe evolution of Arican nationalism.When he died in 1998, he was lauded by Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu as South Africa's greatest friend in the darkest days of apartheid. This is not just an account of his great achievements but also a portrait of a deeply religious man whose temperament was often at odds with his vocation.
