9780310727859: Let There Be Light

“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.

Review:

Let There Be Light combines the text of “The Creation” from Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s Children of God Storybook Bible with illustrations by Nancy Tillman in this picture book introduction to Genesis. Nancy Tillman’s magnificent images show a God of light and love and a world of life and beauty alongside Archbishop Tutu’s chosen scripture. The realistic animal pictures seem almost like photographs, set against a fantastical backdrop of the earth and sky. Tillman portrays a group of multi-ethnic children as the receivers and custodians of God’s creation; readers of her previous book The Crown on Your Head will be familiar with her style of depicting the children with shimmering crowns. There are introductory notes from the author and illustrator, as well as a sweetly illustrated page for inscription, which adds to the book’s appeal as a meaningful gift and keepsake. Let There Be Light delivers just the right balance of tenderness, imagination, and wonder. Young readers will be enchanted by the bright illustrations and exaggerated colors as they read or hear about each day of God’s marvelous handiwork and the culminating message: “You are loved.” (Christian Library Journal)
