Prof Jurgens Hendriks

Stellenbosch University

The book Living with Dignity won the Andrew Murray – Desmond Tutu prize for theological literature in Southern Africa in 2016. It was a wonderful event that a NetACT publication won the most coveted award for theological publications in 2016. This is partly due to the quality of the publication. We had a very good editorial team looking after the content, but that is 60% of the work. The rest is the very hard work of a faultless and stylish publication that was done by the African Sun Media team.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to you and all at African Sun Media for what you have done for our book on Kromdraai, especially in making it available as a revised edition. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Kromdraai is a very important site in the Cradle of Humankind, and I would like to thank you profusely for what you and all at African Sun Media have done to help us promote awareness of the significance of Kromdraai, as part of South Africa's heritage which is part of world heritage! Many thanks indeed.
