Publishers Description The enormity of the global AIDS pandemic threatens to overwhelm us. More than 3 million people died of AIDS last year about 8,000 per day and another 5 million were infected with the pernicious HIV virus. And the numbers are growing. So what role do we, the Church play in this growing crisis? The church must continue to give hope to the hopeless those languishing alone. We must use the HIV/AIDS crisis to demonstrate the love of Christ by caring for AIDS sufferers, their family members, and their communities by whatever means available.To this end, in November 2003, over 3000 participants gathered to address the issues of the church and the HIV/AIDS crisis. The Hope Factor captures the findings of some of the world's top minds and hearts dealing with the issue of AIDS. -- It shows how we in the Western church can come alongside and help people impacted by AIDS. Academicians, pastors, AIDS patients, and physicians from around the world share hard-won insights that will help you and your church or organization make a difference in practical ways.
