HIV & AIDS together constitute one of the most serious challenges to human life in our time. The consequences are often grave for individuals, families, whole communities and nations. How can Christians respond to this worldwide problem? This book is designed to equip church leaders and their communities with the means to save, protect and prolong lives, and, above all, enable people to live positively in the face of the HIV & AIDS epidemic. The authors forcefully argue this involvement to be seen, not as an additional activity to ministry, but as a calling that enriches ministry's essential meaning and value. Byamugisha's straightforward explanation of HIV & AIDS and suggestions for Christian responses are complemented by case studies from around the globe.
