Book Review: Red Letters: Living a Faith That Bleeds
"It is an eerie, empty place," writes author Tom Davis about Kisumu, Africa. "Where once the sounds of vivacious children playing and laughing filled the air, only fading echoes remain." The deadly HIV/AIDS epidemic has devastated the beautiful city of Kisumu. In his book Red Letters: Living a Faith That Bleeds (David C. Cook), Davis tells many heartbreaking stories like this one. But amidst these stories, he explores the significance of the Bible's red letters, or Jesus' words, and challenges Christians to live out their faith by spreading Jesus' love to those who need it most. Davis also offers prayers and other ways to make a genuine difference in hurting communities around the world. When you buy Red Letters, a portion of your purchase cost goes to feed an orphan for a month.
