A book of amazing hope coming out of devastation Apr 9, 2001
As a Liberian, author Kulah has experience all of the devastation of the seven years of internal war and strife that afflicted his country. He knows first hand capture and threats to him personally. He is one who suffered the loss of many of his friends. There is a reality and accuracy about his writing that gives a good history and background to Liberia. Some of this reality I have also experienced first hand by traveling to Liberia. Midst the devastation of his people, this United Methodist bishop is able to make a profound statement of hope. A must read for anyone who seeks further insight into this troubled land.
