First published in 1984, Dreadlocks is the story of a young man’s search for identity and truth set against the social and racial tensions of London in the 1970s.
Now revised with a new foreword by the author, this book tells of Les Isaac’s journey from Rastafarianism to Christianity, his desire to connect with hard-to-reach communities, and the first steps of his Christian ministry.
