Warring Souls shows what happens when religious faith is governed by ethical passion ? and when it isn’t. It is the story of conflict between 35-year old Sarah Williams, the radical Professor of Christian Ethics at the fictitious St Mark’s College near George, and Dr Gerald Meyer, the recently-appointed and staunchly evangelical vice-chancellor, together with their supporters. The story takes place in the first semester of 2006. The conflict includes a dramatic Easter event in the Swartberg mountains and reaches a tense climax at the end of a campus mission. Led by an eloquent missioner from Oxford, the mission is intended to bolster evangelical faith and indirectly counter Sarah’s influence. Warring Souls includes flashbacks to her doctoral studies at Oxford and her sabbatical in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It carries a vital, ethical message for all believers Endorsement from Professor Judith Brown "Like all good fiction which is not fantasy or escapism Warring Souls can be read at different levels. It is a story of academic life and the tensions which can erupt in apparently calm and dedicated educational environments. It tells of the political intrigue and organization which can engulf many kinds of small communities. At its heart this is a sobering story of bitterness and the potential for violence when people of faith leave their minds at the doors of their holy places” Judith M. Brown is Emeritus Beit Professor of Commonwealth History, University of Oxford.
