Bishop Duncan's Book

Breaking a Mould

Memories of a Bishop      by Duncan Buchanan

 Duncan Buchanan believed that the church lives to be God’s influence for goodness and truth in society.  He loved to teach and write and was convinced that the church, all the people of God in South Africa, have a responsibility to set an example in terms of integrity, honesty, morality, work ethic, faithfulness in relationships, servant leadership – to fulfil Desmond’s dream of  a ‘rainbow nation’ and God’s will for our ‘new’ democracy.

 This book, Breaking a Mould, the text of which was completed shortly before he died, is based on his memories of the 14 years he was Bishop of Johannesburg, spanning some very turbulent and difficult years in the history of South Africa.
