The Religion Communicators Council recently honored Chris Herlinger and his co-author, Paul Jeffrey, for skillfully documenting the continuing crisis in Darfur in the book, “Where Mercy Fails — Darfur’s Struggle to Survive.”
The book, published by Seabury Books, brings people into focus with the human dimensions of this crisis in western Sudan, a country in northeastern Africa.
The Foreword to the book is written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
“Unlike with the Nazi Holocaust, the world knows,” said Tutu. “But knowledge has not galvanized into the will to provoke a resolution. It is part of the honesty of this book that it brings us face-to-face with this sad reality.”
