About the Author:

Naomi Tutu is the founder and Chairperson of the Tutu Foundation for Developmentand Relief in Southern Africa, founded in 1985. She speaks frequently on SouthAfrican issues to schools, churches, and universities all over the United States.

From Library Journal:

Here are excerpts from Bishop Tutu's speeches, sermons, and writings, nearly half being published for the first time. As his daughter's introduction stresses, themes of faith and community predominate in these passages, which are grouped under such headings as "Violence and Nonviolence" or "Faith and Responsibility." The lack of citations may frustrate some readers, but it does give the selections a timeless, transcendent look on the page, and a chronology of Tutu's life and brief bibliography of sources appear at the end. The anthology closes with the Nobel Prize acceptance speech.-- EC
