Book description

Death and suffering are ubiquitous - they know no boundaries, no restrictions of culture or religion, and yet people attempt to compartmentalize the problems and solutions, whether talking about AIDS in Africa, or obesity in the West, or a religious response to suffering. This book looks at the issue of evil and suffering from a global and holistic perspective, and it develops a position which considers the response of the major faith groups towards the global AIDS crisis. In recognizing that the problem is entwined in an interconnected world consisting of diverse people with diverse belief systems, it is the book's contention that the problem of HIV/AIDS can only be approached from a multi-religious and multi-cultural perspective; that a true theology of HIV/AIDS can only be developed if that theology reflects the interconnectedness of the world in which we live. It is postulated that such a theology can lead to an enhanced global response to evil and suffering and, by using practical examples, this is demonstrated in response to HIV/AIDS.
