"Combining information, expertise and careful reflection in many fields, this book addresses urgent questions ... on the basis of a three-year, broadly-based study conducted by the World Council of Churches Consultative Group on AIDS. The study involved theologians and ethicists, virologists and physicians, specialists in human rights, pastoral counsellors and local pastors, as well as persons living with AIDS, working with AIDS-related movements and others directly affected by AIDS. The challenge of AIDS calls for a forthright and faithful response from Christians and the churches. This book is an important resource for shaping that response". -- back cover.

This book "is an offering to churches and the world -- a significant and vital addition to the continuum of knowledge -- that will greatly assist churches to be effective and efficient in the struggle to overcome HIV/AIDS. It is a compilation of historical, scientific and statistical material aimed at providing churches and their partners with a better understanding of the dynamics of HIV/AIDS as well as current information to aid in collaborative efforts at answering the challenge of the disease. .... On a practical level this response is deliberately multi-faceted and interactive, encouraging churches and Christian service organizations to build and support coalitions dedicated to overcoming this epidemic". -- Preface.
