A Christian Response to AIDS in Africa The victims of the AIDS pandemic in Africa are far more numerous than the dead and dying. Millions of orphans and widows are trying to survive in extreme poverty. James Cantelon, a Canadian pastor, has challenged churches in Africa and North America to unite in a common cause to bring relief to a suffering of intolerable magnitude.
'When God Stood Up' is the story of a remarkable journey that affirms God's presence in the most ravaged places on Earth. Millions of our fellow human beings are depending on just to be "God's hand extended." Read about their stories and be humbled.
"Posturing God as standing up sends readers a signal: beware. Coddled for years by an image of a benign and permissive deity, Cantelon gives a yank on our leash of grace. Human tragedy, he reminds us, isn't just unfortunate--it's the stuff of life that strikes at the very heart of faith, a faith he asserts that should neither be smug nor comfortable. This God of justice makes it clear that those who call themselves by his name are to do no less than embrace justice." --Brian Stiller, President, Tyndale University & Seminary, Toronto
