Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446530328, Hardcover)During a time when black foreign preachers were banned from South Africa and branded as trouble-makers, 24-year-old preacher and level-headed leader Joshua Clay is sent to South Africa as a missionary to "civilise" the Africans. And as a young black man in the 1930s, Joshua knows this is a remarkable opportunity. However, as he sets off on his journey with the many expectations of those at home weighing heavily on him, Joshua is unaware of the changes that lie ahead. Slowly, Joshua falls in love with the people, the country, and, much to his surprise, a South African woman. Through it all, Joshua realises the changes he is experiencing test his strength and faith, and open his eyes forever to his true identity - and to the real meaning of God's love.

Young African American reverend Joshua Clay welcomes the chance to minister in South Africa. He turns down an offer to serve in his community church in Philadelphia in order to prepare for his upcoming trip abroad. Once he arrives in Africa, however, he is caught between others' expectations and his own beliefs. Turning to God, Joshua must gather the strength to search for answers that might bring some peace to a grief-stricken land.
