Quick Overview
Dennis Stirk, author of this fascinating book, is not only of settler stock (married to a descendant from yet another famous settler wave), but was born and raised, and later made his living in 'Settler Country'. This has never been easy here, where there exists neither gold, diamonds nor major industry. Eastern Cape farmers, by taking very seriously the commandment "Six days shalt thou labour” have managed with difficulty to keep their heads above water - that and nothing more. Dennis questions the meaning of life, but being filled with the spirit of the well known baptismal prayer about "not being ashamed to confess the faith of Christ crucified”, describes with telling conviction, how the experience of taking Jesus Christ, crucified, raised, ascended and glorified, into his life, has given him a new understanding of life. Dennis shows that even our most pressing and puzzling problems can be relegated to their proper proportions, when seen in the light that comes alone from Him who is the Saviour of the World.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
