When God's People Have HIV/AIDS: An Approach to Ethics
To help the church community respond adequately and affirmatively to HIV/AIDS, Cimperman proposes integrating spirituality and morality by developing the Christian virtues of fidelity, prudence, hope, and solidarity to overcome the ravages of the AIDS epidemic on both body and soul, individual and community. Two case studies--one from Uganda and the second, the story of Dr. Paul Farmer, in Haiti--demonstrate what is possible when people of God exercise compassionate discipleship. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion. While written from the Roman Catholic tradition, this exploration of the wealth of virtue ethics will be useful and informative to all faith traditions.
