Denis Hurley OMI is widely regarded as the most influential South African Catholic in modern times. Throughout his long life he was a prolific letter-writer. From thousands of his letters to family, friends and a wide range of people in powerful positions, 251 have been selected for this volume. The letters reveal much about Hurley as a person and give unique insight into the dramatic events in both church and state in South Africa over seventy years.
