In 1990, Fr. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest active in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, opened a letter bomb that nealy killed him. Though he survived, the blast took both his hands and one of his eyes. This memoir tells the story of this horrendous event, beginning with the journey that led him there--particularly his rising awareness of the radical demands of the gospel and his growing identification with the freedom struggle. Join Professor Kim Vrudny for a glass of wine and for an indepth discussion of Fr. Lapsley's memoir, Redeeming the Past: My Journey from Freedom Fighter to Healer.
