"The Calling"; Memoirs of Canon Nancy Charton
Nancy Charton, one of the first women to be ordained priest in the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, and an Honorary Canon of Grahamstown Cathedral, has published her memoirs under the title "The Calling". The book was originally published privately in a very limited edition, but has now been edited by Dr Wilhelm (Billy) Meyer and reissued by Cluster Publications. Nancy Charton has had a long and varied life, and has gone through many experiences including abuse as a child, mental illness and a period of complete atheism. This book records her walk of faith, her involvement with the social issues of the day, and makes fascinating reading. It can be ordered from Cluster Publications for R99 (plus postage).
