"Professor Carter’s exploration of Faure’s life adds a valuable chapter to the saga of South Africa. Because of his religious career and of the varied leading positions which he held Faure was almost a unique figure in the late nineteenth century Cape. We learn through his activities of the controversies in the political, spiritual, judicial and journalistic worlds which were shaping a South Africa on the road to Union."
