Scared by Tom Davis

Tom Davis is flat out passionate about intervention with the people of Africa.   Last week I posted about his book Red Letters and today I just finished a novel by him that captures the plight of the Swaziland children orphaned by AIDS and facing aggrevious conditions of hunger, lack of safety and inadequate medical care.

You cannot come away from reading his books without an awareness of the need and in my case questions on how I can intervene.  Our church is directly involved in ministry in neighboring Zambia.   Three years ago Kay and I visited Zambia and can attest to the reality of Tom’s narrative.  Get your hands on Scared.


About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
