The gift of God's love for children everywhere.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu retells more than fifty of his most beloved Bible stories, artfully highlighting God's desire for all people to to love one another and to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts. Many of the finest artists from around the world have been selected to illustrate the stories. In an attempt to create the first truly global Bible for children, the artists have been invited to portray the stories with the style and richness of their own culture. Their stunning color illustrations allow readers to experience the Bible stories as if they were there - with Adam and Eve in the garden, with Noah on the ark, with Abraham in the desert, and with Jesus on the mountaintop. Every story shows how God works through history and tend with a short prayer, personalizing the message for each reader. Archbishop Tutu's wisdom, compassion, and sense of humor shine throughout as he reminds us that "we are all God's children."
