Paton, Alan.

 

 David Philip, 1973. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair, edge-worn and chipped, some closed tears.  First Edition.

 

"'Like Alan Paton's biography of Jan Hofmeyr, the book is as much about the times in which Clayton lived as about his life. It is rich in anecdote about this legendary man who could hardly open his mouth without saying something profound or mordant or amusing".

 

Geoffrey Clayton (1884-1957) was the Archbishop of Cape Town. On Ash Wednesday 1957, the day before he died, he signed a letter to the Prime Minister of South Africa, refusing to obey the law forcing apartheid in all Christian congregations. 

 

This is also an account of the confrontation between Church & State in South Africa coming to a head in 1970 with the Anglican bishops declining to obey the governments 'church clause' restricting the rights of Africans to attend churches in white areas.
