This comprehensive look by African scholars at the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa features contributions from noted scholars from across the continent, offering analysis from theological, sociological, ecclesiological, and public health perspectives. It is a valuable resource for social analysis and theological reflection from an African perspective, something badly needed for theologians and academics alike. Several prominent American theologians are also contributors, including Lisa Sowle Cahill and James Keenan.

Jacquineau Azetsop is associate professor in the School of Social Sciences of the Gregorian University in Rome. His teaching and research focus on issues of health policy, public health ethics, social dimensions of health, health systems, and the inclusion of the destitute poor.

Comprehensive, interdisciplinary, rich, and mind-jostling, this book is a beacon of hope as well as a wake-up call that challenges individuals and institutions within and outside Africa concerning HIV and AIDS on the continent.
A thoroughgoing theological engagement of HIV and AIDS in Africa has been long overdue. This collection of essays is a must-have and a must-read by every scholar, priest, social worker, pastoral agent, and anyone seeking to understand Africa's journey of pain and hope, and the faith that sustains that journey.
