This Bible was provided to me from Zonderkidz for review purposes.
For those who do not care for some of the interpretation - Desmond Tutu is an Anglican and Anglican views on Biblical interpretation can be varied. Being a mix of Protestant and Roman Catholicism doctrine to various degrees based on culture does result in some interesting views. The Anglican Church of Southern Africa is considered by some to be very liberal (whatever liberal means - not really a fan of the liberal-conservative verbiage considering church history).
I am not going to say what I think is right or wrong about the book's interpretation. I recommend getting a copy and reading it before buying to see if it's right for your family considering the sensitive issue of Biblical interpretation. I do think this is compatible with a lot of mainline Protestant beliefs. Worth considering whatever church you attend.
