Redeeming the Past
By

Rating
In 1990, Fr Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest and monastic from New Zealand, exiled to Zimbabwe because of his anti-apartheid work in South Africa, opened a package and was immediately struck by the blast of an explosion. The bomb - suspected to be the work of the apartheid-era South African secret police - blasted away both his hands and one of his eyes. His memoir tells the story of this horrendous event, backing up to recount the journey that led him there - particularly his rising awareness of the radical social implications of the gospel and his identification with the liberation struggle - and then the subsequent journey of the last two decades. Returning to South Africa, Lapsley saw a whole nation damaged by the apartheid era. So he discovered his new vocation - to become a wounded healer, drawing on his own experience to promote the healing of other victims of violence and trauma.

Reviews

"What the world is most hungry for is the simple knowledge that healing is possible - not by forgetting or minimising outrages and sufferings but by sheer, obstinate, costly commitment to work with the grain of grace. This is what Fr Michael has demonstrated in so many contexts across the globe, and this book is a wonderful testament to what the gospel can make happen." - Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams
