Comments to eBook Made for Goodness: And Why This Makes All the Difference
Akir
Bishop Tutu and his daughter offer an inspiring - and inspired - look at how God really does work through flawed humanity and brings grace and hope. The book is full of powerful stories of danger, oppression, sadness, and hope, grace, and goodness. It would be a great book for a book club or theology study group to read.

Very insightful account of Tutu's experiences in South Africa's emergence from Apartheid. Tutu concludes that all people are good in God's sight, and that bad things people do are not the natural state of affairs. I was privileged to see his home in Soweto in 2006, just three blocks from Nelson Mandela's house.

I love the spiritual aspect of each reading. It makes me stop and rest in the goodness of the love of God and faithfulness of God's promise of love and peace possible as each person works for goodness in their lives.
Saintrius
This refreshing book is the perfect antidote to all of the mudslinging that went during this presidential election cycle. If more people would read this book, we'd have a society where people would respect rather than attack one another. Reading this book will reinforce your own self esteem as well as restore your faith in our communities. It gives us all reasons to hope that good can and will prevail.

'Made for Goodness'is the most inspirational book I have read in a long time. The message of love and forgiveness, supported by tales from many countries of people who were able to look beyond their own pain and find forgiveness for those who had harmed them, or their loved ones, is truly remarkable. South Africa has been so fortunate to have both a Desmond Tutu and a Mandela in their time of need. I will revisit this book time and again, especially in times of trouble, so that Tutu's and Mpho's messages of love and goodness can help me heal.

Bishop Tutu is one of my all time heroes for his intellect, his faith, his grace, and his loving good nature which is willing to forgive insults and injury to include all mankind in God's joy and love.

This is a great book for discussion groups. Many issues are presented that offer excellent, yet sometimes difficult, topics for group discussion and thought. I got this book for a group and I am learning so much, most of all that I want the joy for life and love of others that Desmond Tutu has and this book offers insight into his and his daughters lives that make them who they are. Desmond Tutu has witnessed some of the worlds worst horrors and yet he truly believes that we are all basically good and that we are made for goodness. His discussion is compelling and this book inspires myself--who has not witnessed the level of human evil that he has---to be a better person. A must read for all,that we all may one-by-one improve the world.
Reading this inspiring book is like seeing a sunrise for the first time! Desmond Tutu, joined by his daughter Mpho, invite us to imagine a way of living that brings us fully alive; a way of being that says, "You matter" because your are loved by the Holy One for your existence. They invite us beyond the smallness of divisions and suspicion into the gladness of everyday life. Our own goodness has an impact way beyond anything we might imagine! Through it we remember that "I am because we are" - we are part of the oneness of the human family and Creation. No matter your religion or spirituality, this book invites a life of gladness in which love and compassion are not merely concepts, but part of our daily living. No wonder Tutu is the iconic spiritual voice of hope! The book is a keeper! This is spritual wisdom for being fully alive and engaged. Robert V. Taylor [...]
