This book "is designed for all those Christians who are called to help people cope with HIV/AIDS. Step by step, it introduces us to the basic medical facts, and guides us through practical, loving approaches that enable us to empathize and communicate with those whose lives have been transformed by the disease. Using everyday language and case studies that reveal the kinds of issues and problems that counsellors typically face, this Bible based manual helps us discover within ourselves and those to whom we talk the confidence, respect and hope that can help people living with HIV/AIDS overcome their fears". -- back cover.
