n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - For the sake of silence, M.C. Green : book review

Volume 37, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The canons, if there are any, of postmodernism, allow for a historical novel such as this to be a source for mission history. This book therefore, can be considered a useful tool in considering the history of the origins and development of Mariannhill Mission in the South African Roman Catholic Church. This is a very readable historical novel for a non-historian and non-Christian to read. It has obviously been very well researched so that although the author has on a few occasions used poetic licence it is on the whole written from historical sources.
