36 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Owen on 27 July 2005
Format: Paperback
I've just read this fantastic book by Desmond Tutu. It is right up there with Philip Yancey's "What's so amazing about Grace?" in terms of its ability to affect the whole way that I look at and try to live the Christian life. The two central themes are:
1. Transfiguration. He calls this the power of God's transformation in our world. The principle of transfiguration says nothing, no one and no situation is "untransfigurable,"... He talks about St. Paul, St. Peter and also characters like Nelson Mandela being examples, but of course all of us are capable of being transfigured (the process is a life-long, ongoing one).
2. Ubuntu. (A Nguni word) "It is the essence of being human. It speaks of the fact that my humanity is caught up and inextricably bound up in yours..." Because of Ubuntu, we are all in this life together and what we do affects others as well as what they do affecting us. This of course applies on National and International levels as well.
These two themes are woven together in the book to powerful effect. It is extremely thought provoking, challenging and yet comforting also. We are not on our own, because God has a dream for us and plan and a purpose for our lives - God wants to change us and the world - all we have to do is let Him.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Desmond Tutu gives to the people of today an assurance of the love of God to all them, regardless of Race, gender, creed or colour. It comes as a summination of his life and christian ministry as a sevant of God.
It is well written , clear and in a laguage understood by everyone, without being the language of the hypocrtical gutter press.
His meesage is needed not only by people, but God's church that has sadly got stuck in Augustinian dicotomy of flesh and spirit.
Desmond also gives us an African perspective on family, that the West must learn.
If I was a rich man I would buy this book for all my friends.
Buy it, and be renewed, and affirmed.

Format: Hardcover
In GOD HAS A DREAM, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a hero from the anti-Apartheid struggle, the spiritual and moral representative of South Africa and one of the few legends of our time made a case for humanity. In this book full of hope, deep and moving messages, profound spirituality, beautiful lessons, wise words and insightful truths, we are also treated to a series of humorous lines. This book is idealist in its message but pragmatic in its approach to solving the problems humanity is facing. It has a solution for people of every race, religion, nationality and gender. I recommend this book to anyone who seeking for the truth to solutions of humanity's problems.

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 Feb. 2005
Format: Hardcover
Many people teach the Christian creed from the perspective of those of us who have lived safe, happy and healthy lives with relatively few problems. As such, the message is often that the purpose of evils and problems in the world is to reflect original sin. That message can be an unsatisfying one.
Former Archbishop of Cape Town, Desmond Tutu, sees evils and problems as simply God's methods for developing us into our full potential as Christians. He presents the idea in such a loving and accepting way that every reader will feel God's strength and kindness while reading these remarkable pages. Think of Saul, the enemy of Christians, becoming Paul, the great Christian missionary, and the central message becomes clear.
The book builds a few simple ideas into their profound consequences:
1. God believes in us.
2. God's dream is that we will be His partners to transform the world into everything it can be.
3. God loves us as we are, even the worst sinners.
4. God loves our enemies as much as us. We need to become forgiving as He is.
5. God has chosen us to be the instruments of His goodness. We need to act so that His will be done.
6. To play our role, we need to turn suffering into an ennobling experience rather than an embittering one.
7. To understand what we need to do, we need to spend time quietly with God listening to His messages for us.
8. Ultimately, we should be confident that right will out and patiently believe that good will triumph in its proper time.
What makes the book so special are the many wonderful stories about how these lessons served the South African leaders so well as they struggled to overcome the repressive Apartheid regime that burdened that country.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Morton on 30 Dec. 2009
Format: Paperback
I really can't praise this book too highly - it has had a profound effect on my faith and on my preaching in the year or so since I read it. Tutu is a humane man with a tremendous sense of God's presence in the world and with humanity. With great clarity he reminds us that faith is not simply about believing, but that it is something to be lived. That living in faith means trying to live as God's children in the world, allowing God to work with us and through us to transform the world around us. This is a magnificent vision that avoids the pitfall some Christians fall into of treating humanity as an evil scourge in the world - surely missing the redemptive message of the Cross.
Read it - then read it again.
