Bourke objectively approaches the subject of AIDS without pretension or embellishment. The book itself is set up in a very friendly but candid question and answer fashion, which lends itself to becoming a great reference tool. The author answers questions people often have but are too intimidated to ask. Sample questions include: - In the United States, everyone panicked when AIDS was first reported, but now things don't seem so bad. Isn't it possible that we are overstating the problem?- What about Magic Johnson? Wasn't he diagnosed with AIDS, but is still fine?- How close are scientists to finding a vaccine for the virus?- What about charities? Aren't many of them concentrating on fighting AIDS?- How is HIV/AIDS spread in different parts of the world?- Do condoms really stop the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases?
AIDS is the biggest public health problem the world has ever faced. Yet with all the available information, many of us know little about it. There are thousands of books, websites, and professional documents about AIDS, but it takes time to search them to find the simple facts and information that dispel the myths about this pandemic. Motivated by the obvious need for a manageable tool, Dale Hanson Bourke has compiled the essential information in a simple and straightforward way, explaining medical and political issues in everyday language. Answering the questions the average person asks about this topic, the book is a valuable tool for personal information or group study.
Bourke challenges women to respond to God's call specifically for the second half of their lives, and offers practical ideas for finding new meaning. Her vulnerability and story-driven approach offer essential principles and specific suggestions for women searching for God's purpose and passion in middle age. Dale has also served on the board of directors for World Vision US and World Vision International, and currently serves on the board of International Justice Mission and Opportunity International. She is the founder of the AIDS Orphan Bracelet Project. Dale lives with her husband and two sons near Washington, D.C.
