Product Description

The African AIDS tragedy is at a critical juncture. So many people are infected and dying (indeed, thousands die every day) that we feel compelled to do something, but should we really be supporting the secular organizations that are at the forefront of responding to this crisis? At the same time the American Christian community often appears stonewalled as to how believers should address this continent-wide epidemic - shouldn't Christians have other priorities, like evangelism or missions? The reality is this - half a million children will die of AIDS in Africa this year. Christians need to do something.
One thing that all Christians can agree on is that we are called to do the right thing out of our love for God, and taking care of "...the least of these..." (Matthew 25:31-46) should be a prime concern. Regardless of the results-oriented thinking of some institutions dedicated to African AIDS relief, Christians should be doing something for these unfortunate people, and with the aWAKE Project a concerned Christian can now allay some fears about pragmatic solutions by reading the words of both well-known Christians and others (who may or may not be professing Christians) addressing this issue.
Voices such as Franklin Graham, President George W. Bush and Bill Frist join with Charlie Peacock, Lynne Hybels and Bono, and many more, to spotlight the non-African perspective. African voices are well-represented here as well, with articles from Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and Kofi Annan, among others, lending their words to buttress the underlying premise of the aWAKE Project. The third part of the book contains lists and resources for the reader to start taking action right now. Informative, eye-opening and convicting, this book will change you.
