Product Description

In God's Hands is the 2015 Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book. In this little gem of a book, Archbishop Desmond Tutu distills the wisdom forged through a childhood of poverty and apartheid, an adulthood lived in the glare of the world's media, and the long and agonizing struggle for truth and reconciliation in South Africa into the childlike simplicity which Jesus tells us characterizes the Kingdom of God. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

In God's Hands is the 2015 Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book. It is a meditation on the infinite love of God and the infinite value of the human individual. Not only are we in God's hands, says Desmond Tutu, our names are engraved on the palms of God's hands. Throughout an often turbulent life, Archbishop Tutu has fought for justice and against oppression and prejudice. As we learn in this book, what has driven him forward is an unshakeable belief that human beings are created in the image of God and are infinitely valuable. Each one of us is a God-carrier, a tabernacle, a sanctuary of the Divine Trinity. God loves us not because we are loveable but because he first loved us. And this turns our values upside down. In this sense, the Gospel is the most radical thing imaginable.

It is extremely moving that in this book Archbishop Tutu returns to something so simple and so profound after a life in which he has been involved in political, social, and ethical issues that have seemed to be so very complex.

Author Bio

Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and the Templeton Prize in 2013, and was the founding chair of the Elders from 2007 to 2013. In 2009, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In 1994, Tutu was appointed chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, where he pioneered a new approach to moving beyond civil conflict and oppression.

Editorial Reviews

“Tutu's book rests on the richness of his experience of both injustice and hope . . . This book is a valuable achievement in its own right and should be of interest to many.” —Library Journal

“Simply rendered but profound.” —Publishers Weekly
