A memoir of the Anglican missionary and bishop. Mackenzie left England in March 1855 and, on his arrival in Natal became involved in the ecclesiastical controversies then raging in the colony. As a result he was sent to Durban by the bishop since the colonial chaplain there had been removed. In 1858 Robery Gray, Archbishop of Cape Town proposed a missionary diocese for Zululand and, on being granted permission, proposed to Colenso that Mackenzie would be the most suitable person…however he was not sent there and instead, he established himself at a post on the Umhlali River about forty miles north of Durban. In 1861 Mackenzie, head of the new universities’ mission to central Africa, was consecrated in St. George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, as bishop of Central Africa. Scattered foxing. Boards scuffed and faded, edges browned. Tide marks to the frontis. Wear to front boards, general wear, this book is in fair condition.
