Six More Bibles for Idiots (Updated)

October 13, 2008

Desmond Tutu writes in the foreword, "It is possible to have a new kind of world, a world where there will be more compassion, more gentleness, more caring, more laughter, more joy for all of God's creation, because that is God's dream. And God says, 'Help me, help me, help me realize my dream.'"
