THE BOOK OF FORGIVING: MPHO TUTU VAN FURTH (2017)

THE BOOK OF FORGIVING: MPHO TUTU VAN FURTH (2017)

The singer Annie Lennox praised The Book of Forgiving for its “groundbreaking insights as to how we resolve our lifelong burdens”. Mpho Tutu van Furth who co-authored the book with her father, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, is no stranger to heavy loads: her father was a leading opponent of apartheid in South Africa, and she herself was forced to relinquish the Anglican priesthood over her same-sex marriage. Tutu van Furth has also co-authored a biography of her father, Tutu, and the book Made for Goodness: And Why This Makes All the Difference. She discusses her life and the place of forgiveness with Marianne Elliott.
