Reviews are just starting to trickle in from advanced reading copies of Scared. I wanted to share one with you from Canada, posted on the Amazon Canada site. By the way, for all my Canadian friends, I will be on 100 Huntley Street, one of the largest TV programs in Canada in June. I will also be speaking at Christian Heritage Day @ Ontario Place June 6th.
Tom Davis knows of what he writes, because his story of a photojournalist's view of in Swaziland transported me right into the dust, mud, poverty, hunger, desperation, and humanity of people he obviously loves a great deal.
I turned the pages quickly, but at the same time had a hard time digesting all that I was reading. The story of Adanna - a lovely girl, orphaned by AIDS and trapped by circumstances few North Americans can fathom was both beautiful and heartbreaking.
The words of this book jumped off the page, and haunted my thoughts long after reading. Scared served to personalize and put a face to the suffering of so many on the continent of Africa. And yet, the reader is not left without hope - but hopeful that change is possible, and we have the opportunity to affect change.
I am so grateful that Tom Davis chose to write it. It was used to change my perspective and I pray that it finds a wide audience - and becomes a catalyst for change in the hearts and minds of thousands of others!" - Ellen Graf-Martin
