burning churches cov



What really happened in the 1980’s to draw world attention to the Vaal Triangle in South Africa?

Patrick Noonan's book tells the truth about the insurrection that changed the face of South Africa…


… and about the violence, torture, assassinations, intrigue, passion and betrayal that has never before been told outside the Black townships of South Africa.



From the Foreword

By George Bizos, legal advisor to Nelson Mandela

BizosThey're Burning the Churches is a book that should be read by those who claim that apartheid was not so bad; that we should forget the past and look into the future so that we may become reconciled. Father Patrick's book is a first-hand account of what happened in the black townships of the Vaal Triangle during the turbulent decade from the mid-eighties to the birth of democracy.
