Description
GOD'S IRREGULAR ARTHUR SHEARLY CRIPPS
A Rhodesian Epic

Hardback, 1st Edition, Douglas Steer, 1973.

Personal inscription & signature from the author.

There are some men whose ideas cause us to believe that they were born in advance of their time. One such man was Arthur Shearly Cripps whose life as an Anglican missionary priest in Rhodesia from 1901-53 coincided with a vital period in that country's development.

Differing completely from the conventional idea of a missionary and often impatient of ecclesiastical authority, Cripps identified himself completely with the African people. He lived and slept as they did and was their champion against exploitation by the white settlers. Time and again he was successful in removing abuses and in obtaining modification of laws which would have favoured them at the expense of the Africans.This book throws light on the conditions which ultimately led to the present political situation in Rhodesia.

The hardships of Cripps's life did not prevent him from keeping up his interest in literature. He wrote poetry, some of which is included in The Oxford Book of Mystical Verse and was admired by John Buchan, Laurence Binyon (his Oxford friend and contemporary) and other literary figures of his day.

However, Cripps was not primarily either a politician or a poet. His activities on behalf of the Africans, like his apparently eccentric mode of living, were the outward manifestations of his Franciscan charity and humility. It was this same charity and deep personal holiness which caused him to anticipate the Ecumenical Movement by about fifty years. His closest friends in Africa were a great Methodist missionary, John White, and a pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church, A. J. Liebenberg, whose church building was shared on Sunday evenings with Cripps's Anglican congregation long before such a thing was heard of in Europe.
