Publisher's Summary

Reaching out to listeners of all religious backgrounds, Desmond Tutu shows us how to transform suffering into joy both in our lives and in our world. He tells us that God dreams of a world where laughter, love, and peace reign, and where we realize that we are all members of one family, God's family. In this extremely personal and liberating message, Father Tutu helps us "see with the eyes of the heart" and cultivate the qualities of forgiveness, humility, generosity, and courage that we need to realize God's Dream personally and globally.

Wisdom with Humor

This is a book that is so far above. Because Tutu was the narrator, one can hear the compassion from his voice and his words. A Must read - again and again.

A true gem of compassion at its highest level

I do a lot of spiritual reading, and I have been known to make it 60% of the way through a book before moving on to the next one. While most of these books have been very valuable to me, it is rare to come across one that speaks to my heart the way this one has. The warmth, wisdom, simplicity and depth with which Desmond speak in this work are truly captivating. I highly recommend this title, particularly for times when inspiration may seem to be missing from your life, and times where you may be feeling pain, loss, or hurt.

A Dream that gives everyone Hope

What did you like most about God Has a Dream?

The sensitivity with which Desmond Tutu reads his story, his gentle humour and the grace with which he describes some intensely difficult times in his own life and in the history of South Africa makes this an excellent book to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the honesty in Bishop Tutu's writing. Whether he writes about an horrific injustice or about a funny episode, his sincerity makes it completely convincing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book in one sitting (well, one bread baking session) - and then again! It is one of those books that one can never tire of.
