Somebody's Knocking at Your Door:
AIDS and the African-American Church
(Haworth Religion and Mental Health)
Ronald Jeffrey Weatherford, Carole Boston Weatherford
AIDS poses one of the greatest threats to African descendants since the slave trade. My book discusses obstacles to the religious community's involvement and urges churches to mount prevention and intervention efforts. Somebody's Knocking at Your Door offers perspectives from leading clergy and highlights model AIDS ministries in the U.S. and Africa. Battling AIDS is a matter of life and death. Black churches must join the fight.
