Words of Desmond Tutu by Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Book Description

When Desmond Tutu received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 in recognition of his tireless work on behalf of blacks under apartheid, he joined Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa as one of the great inspirational leaders of our time. In this collection of more than 100 excerpts from his most memorable speeches, sermons, and writings, Tutu discusses issues both timeless and topical, ranging from faith and social responsibility to nuclear disarmament, the Third World, and women in the Church.Chosen and introduced by his daughter Naomi, these selections reveal the eloquence, wit, and passion that have made him an international presence. This volume also contains the full text of the archbishop's acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize, as well as an updated chronology detailing Tutu's recent work, including his fight against AIDS and political turmoil in Africa.Born in 1931 in Klerksdorp, 70 miles west of Johannesburg, Tutu was the son of a Methodist schoolteacher and a housewife. He had hoped to become a doctor but could not afford the medical school fees. He entered the ministry instead and was appointed Dean of Johannesburg in 1975, the first black to hold the post. At this time, he began his struggle against apartheid, the racist system that ended officially in 1994 with the election of Nelson Mandela as the first black president of South Africa.Tutu's commitment to political freedom and human rights is founded on his deep and abiding religious faith. As his daughter Naomi states in her introduction, "If you attempt to understand the man, his words, or his actions divorced from his faith, they have no meaning." It is this belief in the human community, and in the unconditional love of God, that has inspired millions around the world.
