"This book seeks to motivate and challenge Christians, both laity and clergy, to take leadership and form partnerships with Christians around the world in the struggle against HIV/AIDS. In writing it, I am grateful for the opportunity to share what I believe God is calling us to be and to do at this unprecedented, kairotic moment in human history. The New Testament term `kairos', according to Robert McAfee Brown, refers to a `time of opportunity demanding a response: God offers us a new set of possibilities and we have to accept or decline'." -- Intro., p. xiii.

"Edited by Robin Gill".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
This book "gathers together recent theological responses to the challenge of the current HIV/AIDS pandemic. It starts from the Theological Workshop organised by UNAIDS in Namibia in December 2003 and uses some of the key participants as primary contacts for locating these responses on an international and ecumenical basis. .... At present some of the most important theological responses to HIV/AIDS are being made in Southern Africa, South America and India -- and are little known or appreciated in the West -- where HIV/AIDS is often considered to be a disease that is now in control. Statistical and epidemiological reports on the HIV/AIDS pandemic are now widely available in the West, but specifically theological responses are not. This book seeks to rectify this situation and position this theological challenge more centrally in Western theological education." -- back cover.
