9780007552580: Let There Be Light: The Story of Creation Retold by Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, captured the imaginations of children across the world with his storybook Bible. Here he retells the Creation story, accompanied by striking illustrations from Nancy Tillman.

'In the very beginning, God's love bubbled over when there was nothing else–-no trees, no birds, no animals, no sky, no sea–-only darkness.'

‘Let There Be Light’ combines the love and warmth of Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu with the extraordinary talents of bestselling author and illustrator Nancy Tillman. This retelling of the biblical story of creation vividly portrays the wonder and beauty of God's creation on each of the seven days. Using Archbishop Tutu's lyrical text from the Children of God Storybook Bible and Tillman's remarkable illustrations, ‘Let There Be Light’ brings the story of creation to life for readers young and old.

About the Author:

Archbishop Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his lifelong struggle to bring equality, justice, and peace to his native country of South Africa. In 1986, he was elected Archbishop of Cape Town, the highest position in the Anglican Church in Southern Africa. Today Archbishop Tutu chairs the Elders, an independent group of global leaders working to promote the shared interests of humanity. In 2009 Tutu received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honour. He is known for his great love for children, as well as his powerful and profound understanding of the message of Jesus Christ. The Archbishop lives in South Africa with his wife, Leah. They have four children and seven grandchildren.
