Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Magnificently illustrated and beautifully written Scriptural wisdom from one of the church’s greatest heroes. This book is the one children’s book that every Christian family should own. This book will serve as the main devotional book for my children in the upcoming year. In Children of God, Bishop Tutu presents Biblical truths reflecting a much-needed global perspective. --Soong-Chan Rah Milton B. Engebretson Associate Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism North Park Theological Seminary -- Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, , Professor
“Desmond Tutu speaks to children and their elders in an inspiring and beautiful retelling of many of the central stories of the Bible. The artwork is a strong partner to the stories, and supports the challenge of the prayer that closes each one.” -- Katharine Jefferts Schori, , Presiding Bishop and Primate
Top Customer Reviews
This Bible was provided to me from Zonderkidz for review purposes.
For those who do not care for some of the interpretation - Desmond Tutu is an Anglican and Anglican views on Biblical interpretation can be varied. Being a mix of Protestant and Roman Catholicism doctrine to various degrees based on culture does result in some interesting views. The Anglican Church of Southern Africa is considered by some to be very liberal (whatever liberal means - not really a fan of the liberal-conservative verbiage considering church history).
I am not going to say what I think is right or wrong about the book's interpretation. I recommend getting a copy and reading it before buying to see if it's right for your family considering the sensitive issue of Biblical interpretation. I do think this is compatible with a lot of mainline Protestant beliefs. Worth considering whatever church you attend.
