The HIV and AIDS Bible

Selected Essays

The HIV and AIDS Bible opens a new chapter in African religious discourse by placing the pandemic at the forefront of theological discussions. In a series of incisive essays Musa W. Dube examines the HIV/AIDS crisis in light of biblical and ethical teachings and argues for a strong theological presence alongside current economic, social, and political efforts to quell this devastating disease. The HIV and AIDS Bible will be helpful for teachers, clergy, social workers, health care providers, and anyone else seeking creative ways to integrate their religious beliefs with their efforts to alleviate the suffering caused by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
