David has a great photographic eye and has beautifully captured the people of Darfur. This book provides a concise, but powerful overview of the events that have transpired in the last few decades. It was a great tool to share with my 3rd grade students as we studied the genocide that is taking place.

David Johnson has done a remarkable thing. His photographs of the survivors in Sudan are beautiful and compelling, and shown with sincere compassion and dignity. The images will grab you, and the stark facts behind the genocide will make you want to reach out to help.

David's photos and stories are truly amazing. I hope that many folks are stirred to pray for the Darfur residents.

I live in Ethiopia, and deal often with what is happening in the Sudan. I'm thankful this book gives a true picture of the sadness AND happiness experienced by the Sudanese. I find that the only difference between myself and those that have escaped from the genocide is where i was born.

David Johnson does a phenomenal job giving a voice to those not able to tell their own stories. Eye opening accounts and stories of hope from the Sudanese people can be found here. You will be inspired to make a difference and not forget what what these people are going through.

David's book is not only powerful in its photographic images, but also in the excerpts and stories he shares with the reader. In this way, David is able to capture the essence of life in Darfur for these people, and by sharing their testimonies, we are able to fully connect with them as uniquely-created individuals with fascinating stories of bravery and hope. With this picture painted before us, we are invited to be a part of the story in these peoples' lives.

This is a book that requires few works, as the images speak volumns to you. The people and children's faces photographed clearly had met the author, as they seemed to be looking at a friend instead of a voyuer. The author stated that he didn't want to invade or profit from their misery, which most photojournalist today are not concerned with. It was clear to me that the author photographed and wrote this excellent book to bring assistance to the Sudan people, not to himself. Last, how often do you see a book that donates 100% of the profits to go to the people it documented! All the funds from this book are going directly to pay for wells for water. A true Christian act! Bravo!

Voices of Sudan is a powerful tool capturing the strength and resilience of the Sudanese people, outlining the unsettling, yet very real facts of the violent war. The author's passion and heart for those affected by the genocide in Darfur along with his desire to educate is captivating and infectious. My heart was softened and forever changed by the sweet and innocent faces of the children, seeing courage and strength in the women who care for them. Each story told through the lenses of David's camera is an amazing gift that will not be forgotten.

Using pictures, stories and relevant data about Sudan, Johnson's book powerfully describes the horrific plight of the Sudanese people. His commitment to doing what he can to help end the genocide in Sudan is evident throughout.

Voices of Sudan is a book that, literally, 'puts a name with a face', and gives an intimate portrayal of the real lives that are affected by the discord in Sudan. It takes what most of us hear as a 30 second sound bite on the news and helps us understand that peoples' lives are being destroyed by the events in that part of the world. I highly recommend this book!

This book and its photographs touch your heart in a way that no journalistic story can. The photos are moving and make you feel you know the people of the Sudan and their trials. Highly recommend it.

This book is so touching and heartfelt. The title was actually a sad and scary call to action for me. Sudan has no voice if we are not listening. Listen.

David has a way of capturing images of the people from the Darfur region that are not only pleasing to the eye but tell a heart wrenching story. The book put 'arms and legs' around the crisis that exists in Africa. I highly recommend purchasing this book - it's a great cause.

The author of this book does a wonderful job of capturing the plight of the persecuted and impoverished in Sudan while illuminating the hope that they have. He is a gifted photographer.

David Johnson gives necessary background information about the unimaginable situation in Darfur, Sudan, and he reminds us, through his beautiful photographs, that these are real people who need our attention.

You would be hard pressed to find somebody who has ever heard David speak and still is not doing anything to support his efforts or the efforts of others involved in the fight for Sudan. This book is a wonderful representation of the everyday lives of the Sudanese that we cannot possibly understand.

The bright crisp images are such a contrast to the stories that are revealed. I wanted to keep flipping the pages but at the same time I was hesitant because I was afraid of the sadness I would read on the next page. Yet there was hope because the book also lists many agenices that are helping in this dire situation. I bought several copies for my friends as gifts.

This is a must read book. The images in this book capture the stories of just a few people who are suffering from the plight of the genocide in S. Sudan. More importantly all proceeds from the book go to building wells and other programs to help the very people photographed in the book. Its a small price to pay to help our neighbors in Sudan. Pick this book up and tell your friends to do the same.

Like the old saying goes, 'A picture says a thousand words.' Voices of Sudan captures a world that most of us only hear about on the news. The pictures along with the text help tell the story of a forgotten people. It is moving and heartbreaking, but that's the purpose ... to remind us, if only through a camera's lense, that not all are as blessed as we Americans.

The title of this book sparked my curiosity so I picked it up to read in the bookstore. As I scanned the pictures and read the captions, my heart when out to those who are suffering in the Sudan. I felt like I understood their a little more about their trials from their perspective, their voice. I highly recommend this book!

This book touched my heart and the photographs are just beautiful. I believe they capture the beauty, dignity and spirit of the people of Sudan and the goodness of the author and all the people trying to help in this unbearable and intolerable situation.

The simplicity of Voices of Sudan speaks louder than words and truly moves you with the turn of of every page. David's account of the people of Sudan give people hope that this generation can and will make a difference.

David Johnson's book is extremely enlightening, educational, and moving. David has captured the suffering of the people in Dafur, but also captured the determination and joy that exists in Dafur. It is unbelievable that 100% of profits go to the people to help build wells and medical facilities -- truly an unselfish act on his part. This book challenges society to help eliminate the suffering of these people, but is done in a very gentle way through colorful and insightful photographs.
