Publisher's Weekly

"I have learned that when life breaks us, we can work to own it before it owns us." Those words of the author, a United Methodist pastor, ring true in his account of a life spent battling hemophilia, HIV, and accompanying illnesses, as well as debilitating spiritual and emotional challenges. Stanford contracted the disease in the 1980s, when HIV/AIDS was a death sentence. Yet the period was also the start of research and new medicines that kept him alive. Stanford takes readers through his childhood, when he spent much time under the benign mentoring influence of his grandfather; his adolescence, when he was diagnosed and met his future wife; and his struggle to become a pastor despite his HIV-positive status. His story is more than just a battle against prejudice and HIV/AIDS; it's a love story, a tale of forgiveness, a picture of resilience, and a witness to God's grace. Included are a loving afterword by his wife, Pokey Stanford; Stanford's speech at the 2006 Global AIDS Summit; and a nine-lesson study guide. (Apr.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

REL Stanford (The Seven Next Words of Christ) has had a tougher row to hoe than most, as an HIV-positive hemophiliac, Christian minister, husband, and father. Although memoirs as such rarely rise to the level of spiritual reading, the extraordinary circumstances of Stanford's life, his unblinkered clarity about it, and his unquenchable gratitude for God's presence in it make this book a salutary exception. As he eloquently writes, his illness is a continuing reminder that 'what divides us is, ultimately, of little consequence.' VERDICT A heartbreaking---and remaking---life story from a longtime survivor of hemophilia and HIV, alarming and inspiring by turns. -- Stanford, Shane.
