Description - New enlightenment by John Poynton
An African game reserve and nearby mission, with London interludes, are the settings for experiences of a great revolution of our time: realizing that the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century was in many ways a false enlightenment. It led to seeing man as a material creature devoid of spirit, the antithesis of traditional African thinking. Characters in this novel engage in the great revolution as a new enlightenment is forged in the heat of Africa. Romantic involvements among the novel's characters sharpen the story of inner development and transformation, a story befitting the twenty-first century.
