"The Cobbler of Cape Town is another outstanding example of Skip's ability to weave a heartwarming story into an inspirational work of art."

—Amazon reviewer


In March of 1938, a humble, wise African cobbler named Eli Tambo was quietly working in his Cape Town shop.

He was also thinking . . .

Though it was years before South Africa’s famous freedom movement began, Eli was thinking deeply about happiness for all people in his divided land—not just for the privileged ones.

At the same time, a distraught yet determined eighteen-year-old named Lucas Van der Meer was arriving in Cape Town from Holland. It was the beginning of what he hoped would be a transformative, healing journey of service after suffering an unthinkable family tragedy.

When destiny brings the unlikely friends together, Eli and Lucas make a divinely inspired pact to lay the groundwork for empowerment and hope for oppressed South Africans.

With The Cobbler’s Creed as their sacred compass, the men begin slowly making progress on the seemingly impossible task—happiness and belief start emerging. . .

But the ruthless, separative South African government soon learns of their work, and the politicians begin fearing the ever-growing influence of the two men, vowing to stop them at any cost.

With their lives in danger and time running out, Eli and Lucas find themselves facing adversity that tests every ounce of their strength and courage.

Set in enchanting, awe-inspiring Africa,The Cobbler of Cape Town is a gripping, heroic tale, and an inspirational guide for those of us on a pilgrimage to overcome fear, doubt, and heartache—and make the world a better place.
