Full Product Description

In God's Hands by Desmond Tutu is the Archbishop of Canterbury's 2015 Lent Book exploring the childlike simplicity which Jesus tells us characterises the Kingdom of God.

This little gem of a book is Archbishop Desmond Tutu's distillation of the wisdom forged through a childhood of poverty under apartheid, an adulthood lived in the glare of the world's media, all blended together with his experience of the long and agonising struggle for truth and reconciliation in post apartheid South Africa.

Archbishop Tutu has produced a meditation on the infinite love of God and the infinite value of the human individual. Not only are we in God's hands, he says, 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.
