Archbishop Desmond Tutu

When God Smiles


Archbishop Desmond Tutu transforms the daily routine of the press interview into a magnificent and heartrending sermon on the transfiguration of adversity. He conveys his powerful conviction that God presides over a moral universe in which the good and the just shall always be vindicated, and where even the smallest act of pure compassion wipes away the tears of suffering and brings a smile to the face of God. Directly encounter the compassion, optimism, and unequivocal faith of this Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
