About this product
- DescriptionNobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, captured the imaginations of children across the world with his storybook Bible. Here he retells the Creation story, accompanied by striking illustrations from Nancy Tillman. 'In the very beginning, God's love bubbled over when there was thing else-- trees, birds, animals, sky, 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.
