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.

An informed and popularly written portrait of African America churches, focussing on the seven so-called historic black churches -- three Methodist, three Baptist, and one Pentecostal. Although the total U.S. membership of these churches is nearly 22 million, they are often misunderstood in their own country and little known outside it.
