Item description for Facing a Pandemic: The African Church and the Crisis of AIDS by Elias Kifon Bongmba...
Facing a Pandemic traces the history and spread of the HIV/AIDS virus in Africa, its impact on African society and public policy before considering new priorities needed to combat the pandemic. The central argument is that the theological motif of the image of God invites a prophetic critique of the social environment in which HIV/AIDS thrives and calls for a praxis of love and compassion.
