In A Twist of Faith, John Donnelly documents the twisting road traveled by many from a faith-motivated righteous commitment to Africa’s AIDS orphans to the far more difficult destination of doing the right thing. His protagonist David Nixon is an archetype for dozens of well-intentioned Americans I have met who triumphed or failed miserably in direct proportion to the degree that they were able to acquire humility, embrace African family and community values, and overcome the perception that they knew best what African children needed to thrive.

John Donnelly, a journalist with the Boston Globe and a Kaiser Family Foundation fellow, has written a book exploring the effects of American (Christian) intervention with orphans in Africa. He amends his original plan and starts a school and feeding center which helps 350 children (who still get to go home and are cared for those in their own community). Donnelly's narrative of Nixon unfolds his struggle to keep his mission afloat while facing financial and internal challenges, Nixon's struggle to understand and minister effectively in an African context, and the personal challenges he faces at home in North Carolina.

Very slightest of wear to the dust jacket, pages nice and clean, no writing or highlighting. Slight spotting to page edges, does not extend to interior. A very nice copy. All our books are individually inspected, rated and described. Never EX-LIB unless specifically listed as such.

As someone who never read about Africa's history, this book is superbly clear. Literally, every sentence the author wrote is very easy to understand. Considering this book covers such a broad time span (from a few thousand BC to present day) and include all parts of Africa, it could have been easily jarring and convoluted. But every chapter is written with such clarity

Very accurate literature. The book is easy to read, and is organized as expected. If the theory of evolution offends you, please be warned, the first few chapters talks about that subject.

This book was a requirement for school but found it to be a dense read. Usually, I enjoy my textbooks and sometimes purchase them but I am happy to return this book. It arrived late but in good condition.

Only a few chapters in and I'm so intrigued. Learned a lot so far and can't wait to learn more.

This book is an incredibly detailed chronicle of Africa. My travels to this great continent inspired me to learn more of its history. My desire was to obtain a greater general knowledge of the "cradle of man" and trace human origins in relationship to cultures, migrations, et cetera. Although I feel that this book is a brilliant work, it is superfluous with detail and exceeds my personal wants or needs. I tend to get lost in the constant infinite details of this book. It is a 'hard read'. The book is a scholar's delight of ad infinitum names, places, and events which I cannot possible retain.
Straightforward read, appropriate for high school students and a good starting place for beginning learners of African History.
Really goes in depth of african history.
