"This book offers a new perspective on Mondlane's life, it renews our understanding of religion and politics in Mozambique, and it demonstrates brilliantly how the world missionary movement evolved, including the World Council of Churches, at the interface between structural constraints and the action of individuals."
--Eric Morier-Genoud, lecturer, African history, Queen's University of Belfast, UK
"Eduardo Mondlane was a giant within the movement to liberate Portugal's African colonies. Relying on a broad range of primary sources and his own personal experience, both in Mozambique and in the church, Robert Faris reveals the tensions in Mondlane's life, between the struggle for personal freedom and the armed struggle for liberation, between theology and liberation."
--Frank J. Luce, associate fellow, Harriet Tubman Institute, York University, Canada
"Portuguese-speaking countries and Christian missions in Africa are two topics on which many content themselves with gross generalizations. With his vivid yet soundly researched portrait of Eduardo Mondlane, the--assassinated--leading figure in Mozambique's struggle for independence, Bob Faris gives us a fascinating and deeply enriching insight into the complex interactions between the local people, Western missionaries, and the representatives of the colonial system."
--Benedict Schubert, lecturer, missiology, Basel University, Switzerland
