Item description for Hope in the Dark by Jeremy Cowart & Jena Lee...
Overview Twenty-five years ago, AIDS was unknown in sub-Saharan Africa. Today it's overwhelmingly the continent's biggest killer. In Hope in the Dark, photojournalist Jeremy Cowart documents the hope and pain of Africa's AIDS generation-a generation beset by poverty and fear, a generation in which children in some countries are more likely to die of AIDS than not. But despite the sickening odds, Cowart captures brief glimpses of beauty, optimism and joy as he makes his way across the continent. Through this collection of startling, remarkable images, his lens uncovers not just the magnitude of the problem, but also the places where God is undeniably present in the midst of it.

Stirring Mar 8, 2007
This book is amazing. It draws the reader into the lives of the African people! It stirred my heart to prayer and made me love them even more!
passionate. brilliant photography. Jan 19, 2007
i reccomment this book to anyone passionate about AIDS, who cares about people living in destitution or just enjoys great photography.
fabulous! Jan 12, 2007
this book really reflects the beauty of africa. i have never been there to see for my own eyes, but the beauty this book gives me is exactly how i picture it. africa is plagued with the unfortunate disease of AIDS, but god shows through everything and it is so apparent through these photographs. africa is a special place that is in constant spiritual turmoil, but books like these shows us that such beauty and such pain exists in the same place. god and sin sadly co-exist. this book just allows you to sit and ponder and really think what is out there in this world. it is a book you will look through over and over and over.
AMAZING! Nov 6, 2006
This book is amazing! I bought it for my classroom. As a result of this book, my 4th grade public school students are joining in on the Blood:Water Mission . I showed them the pictures and read the book to them. We were able to talk about all of the resources we take for granted here in the States. They were able to find creative ways to raise money for wells in Africa.
Great Book Nov 3, 2006
I love this book. It has awesome pictures of Africa, and it captures the emotions of people very well. When I first read the book, it almost made me cry because it is very wonderful. It really makes you appreciate what you have in life. I recommend this book to anyone!
