More About Marc Nikkel & Grant Lemarquand
Marc Nikkel was a priest of the Episcopal Church who served as a missionary appointee in the Sudan
Marc Nikkel, an Anglican priest who spent most of his adult life in Sudan or ministering to displaced Sudanese, writes here from the perspective of someone who personally knows and loves individual Sudanese. In this collection of his letters to his friends and supporters, shocking facts about genocide and brutality are relegated to background information. The focus is on the humanity and faith of the people, and how they express it through their poetry, songs, and prayers. Instead of numbing us with facts, Nikkel simply reveals the people's hearts and how this tragic war affects them. If you care about the current situation in Southern Sudan, which is still suffering though the world's attention has moved to Darfur, you need this book.
