"... a fascinating journey into the life and times of Garfield Todd."―Michael O. West, Binghampton University, Social Sciences and Missions
"Casey places in historical, political, and rhetorical context the high eloquence of this admirable man. He helps us see that Todd was an exemplary democrat, a true Christian who, in our own political climate of division and secrecy, can serve as a model of justice and dialogue for us all. Casey is to be commended for his careful research and scholarship and for his lucid and well-written interpretation of this important figure in the modern political history of Africa."―Walter Jost, Associate Professor of English, University of Virginia
"This volume is luminously imaginative with the natural depth that the life of Garfield Todd deserves. The Rhetoric of Garfield Todd is a must for the peoples of Africa and those who are privileged to be their distant neighbors in the Diaspora. Informed and informing, the book revives the controversial subject of the balance between Church and State and challenges contemporary leaders to embrace public service as an opportunity to exercise Christian convictions with courage and confidence."―Caleb Oladipo, Duke K. McCall Professor of Mission and World Christianity, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond
