John de Gruchy, internationally renowned theologian, vividly recounts his remarkable life filled with challenge, discovery, and many extraordinary fellow travellers. As a young pastor and ecumenical activist, De Gruchy grappled daily with the realities of troubled country. As a scholar of the anti-Nazi theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, he takes part in a global conversation about our responsibilities in this world.
I Have Come a Long Way tells De Gruchy’s extraordinary story of political action, personal tragedy, but also engaged thought, as he embraces Christian humanism and the faith community at Volmoed. Along the way we meet a varied cast, from Albert Luthuli, Jaap Durand, P.W. Botha and Constand Viljoen to Desmond Tutu, a close friend. I Have Come a Long Way is an honest, very human portrait of a man who has made a significant contribution to theology and justice, and whose work continues to inspire.
