    DescriptionWhen AIDS was first identified, Christians were thrown into a state of shock. No more nor less than the rest of the human race. The Christian right immediately declared that this was a punishment from God on promiscuous gays. But HIV and AIDS also spread amongst the heterosexual community and worked its devastating way through the African continent. HIV/AIDS now also poses a huge challenge to India, which has more than five million people living with HIV/AIDS, the second largest after South Africa.And yet The Vatican still condemns the use of contraceptives in any circumstances. Here a group of progressive Christians face the fundamental issues full on. From the start The Dominican Order made the care of AIDS sufferers a primary concern. This book was inspired by them and their former Master Timothy Radcliffe is a major contributor and inspiration in this book. The concern is to dig down to deeper issues of theology, sexuality and Christian ethics.
