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.

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.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 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.

A lovely book written by a delightful man with a true understanding of the Christian virtues of tolerance, forgiveness and compassion. Some wonderfully sensible quotes - two that have stuck in my mind are (from memory) "God asks us to love our enemies, he does not require us to like them" and "There is a lot of stuff in the Bible which is human, badly written and quite frankly which we would be better off without". I give this book to people who ask me if I can recommend something for them to read when their faith is challenged and invariably get good feedback - that is why I am buying yet another copy!

A fantastic book by a true man of God. It is a refreshing source of inspiration, drawn from the personal experience in apartheid South Africa, on how to resolutely embrace our humanity in the face of inhuman atrocities throughout the world. This book will give hope to those who are inclined to think that God has abandoned our world. No, he hasn't and maybe you will be able to see His dream through the eyes of this charismatic proponent of non-violence and forgiveness, in a world which sorely lacks both.

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.

The Reverend John E. Harris-White
[Anglican priest and Benedictine oblate]
