    1. Although not a necessarily long book, this is one of the best I have read about the LRA Lord s Resistance Army led by Joseph Kony It explains the background history and the tactics used by Kony and his commanders I actually learned quite a lot from this, when I thought I knew so much about it already There are sad stories throughout it and really disturbing ones at that as well I recommend reading this book if you are curious about child soldiers and the human trafficking issues it involves.


    2. I was rather less impressed by this book than I expected.The good It is written from a Christian perspective the author is a Catholic professor of moral theology It is interesting to see his take on the LRA conflict through the lens of solidarity and imago dei being image bearers of God.The bad I found the book to be rather shallow Perhaps I m an unfair audience, since this book is really intended as an introduction for people who don t already know the story of the LRA and child soldiers, but I [...]


    3. This book only gets two stars, mostly because of the repetitive nature of the text and the weepiness of the author Understandably, the issues discussed are important ones What is happening to the children in Uganda is a brutal and terribly tragic reality Children s stories are given to us from the author s point of view, as they were told to him, and while the historical background of the LRA and the ongoing war in Uganda is informative, the author s personal opinions and pleading with the audie [...]


    4. Kind of a superficial review of the history of the LRA and conflict in Uganda, through a very distincly Christian interpretation Doesn t really provide much of an anaylsis on the LRA, and perpetuates the incorrect views of LRA violence as insane, chaotic, uncoordinated, etc Not very useful if you actually want to understand the nature of the LRA or issues of child soldiers, but has lots of stories from people in North Uganda.


    5. I enjoyed this book, but I did find it very repetitive I wish he would have concentrated and spent time on individual stories.
