Great African review Jul 9, 2008
When I completed reading this book, the thought struck me that this book could be one in a series evaluating the many God-forsaken trends in other regions of the world. But that would only be feasible if the authors were as well versed in the culture and history of other regions as this author is in sub-Saharan Africa. I appreciated his honest, candid review of the historic events that developed into trends, as well as his own biographical vulnerability about his life journey as a "White African". He also offers the solution to many of the problems evaluated. 2 Corinthians 5 : 14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.
One of the main reasons for studying history it would seem, is too learn from it in order to avoid the same pitfalls. This book is a great tool to accomplish that goal, not just in Africa but worldwide. History is continuing to unfold and we all can have a part in whether it repeats itself or whether a new and beautiful story is told.
