Over the years the same questions get asked of Desmond
Tutu, the archbishop, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and veteran
of the moral movement that ended apartheid in South Africa:
"How can you be so hopeful after witnessing so much evil?"
"Why are you so sure goodness will triumph in the end?" This
book is his answer.
Now, more than any other time
in history, our world needs this message: that we are made
for goodness and it is up to us to live up to our destiny.
We recognize Archbishop Tutu from the headlines as
an inspirational figure who has witnessed some of the
world's most sinister moments and chosen to be an ambassador
of reconciliation amid political, diplomatic, and natural
disasters. Now, we get a glimpse into his personal
spirituality—and a better understanding of the man behind a
lifetime of good works. In this intimate and personal
sharing of his heart, written with his daughter, Episcopal
priest Mpho Tutu, Tutu engages his reader with touching
stories from his own life, as well as grisly memories from
his work in the darkest corners of the world. There, amid
the darkness, he calls us to hope, to joy, and to claim the
goodness that we were made for. Tutu invites us to take on
the disciplines of goodness, the practices that are key to
finding fulfillment, meaning, and happiness for our lives.
