A Positive Life

positiveShane Stanford | Zondervan

In A Positive Life: Living With HIV as a Pastor, Husband, and Father, speaker, author and teacher Shane Stanford is straightforward in his tell-all book of living with—not dying of—chronic disease. Leaving the results of his illness up to God, he has lived 20 years past his doctor's original expectations after his diagnosis at age 16.

The journey propels readers with its accounts of Stanford's hemophilia, his childhood home in Mississippi, his visits to Duke University, secret hotel meetings with officials about his ordination, the inner workings of the United Methodist Church, his hospital stays and much more. Through it all, he addresses the stereotypes and stigmas that often accompany HIV.

A Positive Life is a guide on how to grow as a man, father and pastor in crisis, while living with chronic disease, and is for anyone wanting to see God's grace and unconditional love at work. The Bible study and resource guide at the back is helpful for church leaders of all denominations as well as for people looking to grow in compassion and love.
