"[Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s] unofficial legacy will be his life and the story of how this tiny pastor with a huge laugh from South Africa became our global guardian."—TIME
For the first time, a collection of the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s profound and controversial historic speeches, interviews and sermons, demonstrating Tutu’s courageous and much-needed needed moral vision.
Biographer John Allen collects Nobel Peace Prize winning Tutu's most inspiring words in this anthology of speeches, interviews, and sermons that have rocked the world, including topics such as reconciliation after the atrocities of apartheid and later Rwanda, how we can celebrate differences, and welcome a variety of voices to the table.
An unforgettable look at the South African pastor’s deeply rooted empathy and penetrating wisdom, God Is Not a Christian is perfect for anyone moved by of Martin Luther King Jr.’s“ I Have a Dream” speech or Nelson Mandela’s stirring autobiography Conversations with Myself, brilliantly connecting readers with the courageous and much-needed moral vision that continues to change countless lives around the globe.
Desmond Mpilo Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984. In 1986 he was elected archbishop of Cape Town, the highest position in the Anglican Church in South Africa. In 1994, after the end of apartheid and the election of Nelson Mandela, Tutu was appointed as chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate apartheid-era crimes. His policy of forgiveness and reconciliation has become an international example of conflict resolution and a trusted method of postconflict reconstruction. He is currently the chair of The Elders, where he gives vocal defense of human rights and campaigns for the oppressed.
