Sinopsis: On 11 October 1899, Britain was officially at war in South Africa against the Transvaal Republic and the Orange Free State. While the war was thousands of kilometres away, and Canada's contribution of over 7,000 troops to the imperial cause was relatively small, the war is considered to be one of the critical events in the nation-building process of the young dominion. Gordon Heath's "A War with a Silver Lining" is a ground-breaking analysis of why the Canadian Protestant churches enthusiastically supported the war effort. Extensive archival research allows Heath to show how the churches' concern for international justice, the development of the nascent nation Canada, the unifying and strengthening of the empire, and the spreading of missions led to passionate and widespread support for the war effort. Providing a valuable link between Victorian and twentieth-century Protestantism, war, and the British Empire, "A War with a Silver Lining" is a revealing account of the significant role that churches played in nineteenth-century Canadian public life.
"A War with a Silver Lining makes a distinct contribution to our understanding of the church's role in shaping Canadian discourse on the South African War and its national significance. There is a growing literature on religion, missions, imperialism and war, all subjects that inform and will be informed by this study." --Carman Miller, McGill University, author of Painting the Map Red: Canada and the South African War, 1899-1902
"A well-documented, carefully balanced, and widely informed argument which adds a great deal to the understanding of Canada's churches and religious idealism as significant contributors to English Canadian enthusiastic participation in the war." --Duff Crerar, Grande Prairie Regional College and author of Padres in No Man's Land: Canadian Chaplains and the Great War
