A progressive Christian pioneer: Mel White’s review

Posted on by admin

Almost all readers of this blog will know who Mel White is.  Author of Stranger At The Gate and founder of SoulForce, Mel has been a hero to many of us for years and years.  If you need a refresher, it’s here at Wikipedia.

I sent him a review copy of The Kairos some weeks ago.  He replied recently with this email (and gave permission to quote it):

“After carrying The Kairos around the country/world in my suitcase for more than a month, I finally read it on flights and in concourse lobbies AND I LOVED IT.  Good work….  It’s a very good novel.  I’m impressed.”

Thank you so much, Mel.  Not just for this welcome endorsement, but for decades of gracious, loving, effective leadership in progressive Christian sexuality issues.  We who are about to live (and marry, and stay in the military, and end being bullied, and more) salute you!

    Written and directed by Jeremy Nichols (author of “On the Beauty of Christ and Christian Reason”), THE AFRICAN CAMPAIGN is the controversial depiction of the most heinous myth surrounding AIDS’ origin. In fundamentalist circles, it is believed that AIDS is a God-caused plague, the result of God’s hatred of the LGBT community. Rather than deny this falsehood, Nichols appropriates the myth to reveal its faith-crippling consequences. In THE AFRICAN CAMPAIGN, heroes are those who suffer God’s viral wrath, challenge His hypocrisy, and free themselves to find love elsewhere.
    Four friends from the 16th century, who discovered a ritual that empowered them to defy God and his Angel of Death, are forced into an untimely reunion in present-day London when one of them contracts AIDS: God’s viral revenge. THE AFRICAN CAMPAIGN is the story of their resistance.
