Take and read

These searching biblical reflections on the HIV/AIDS crisis pay special attention to the perspectives and suffering of women. The essays are authored principally by African women scholars. The volume includes a postscript by Letty Russell.

Written while the author was acutely ill and unable to read, this book gives an account of humanity’s deep woundedness and its capacity for deep healing. The book’s vivid style and lush imagery are reminiscent of Showings, by Julian of Norwich. Farley writes from a Christian perspective and also draws on themes and practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
