Footprints in the African Sand-My life & times


Out of stock


Told with inimitable charm and humour, this is a personal story of family, friendship and faith, beautifully demonstrating God’s love at work in the turbulence of Africa’s recent history.

The autobiography of Dr. Michael Cassidy, one of the most influential people in the development of modern South Africa and a key figure in the growth of the Christian church in Southern Africa over the last fifty years.
As the nations of Africa shook off the shackles of colonialism and embraced their newfound independence in the 1960s, a singular figure burst into prominence in the tumultuous and expectant atmosphere gripping the continent. A son of apartheid South Africa, Michael Cassidy appeared an unlikely candidate to bring a Gospel message of salvation, reconciliation and hope to a land throwing off the chains of apartheid.
