about

Desmond Tutu retells more than fifty of his most beloved Bible stories, artfully highlighting God’s desire for all people to love one another and to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts.

Many of the finest artists from around the world—such as Jago, E.B. Lewis, Javaka Steptoe, and Xiao Xin—have been selected to illustrate the stories, portraying the stories with the style and richness of their own culture.

Editorial Reviews

"Desmond Tutu speaks to children and their elders in an inspiring and beautiful retelling of many of the central stories of the Bible. The artwork is a strong partner to the stories, and supports the challenge of the prayer that closes each one." -- Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate
