Acts of Faith

Philip Caputo


Philip Caputo’s tragic and epically formidable new novel is determined in Sudan, the place battle is an enduring . Into this desolate theater come relief staff, missionaries, and mercenaries of moral sense whose braveness and idealism occasionally coexist with treacherous ethical blindness. There’s the entrepreneurial American pilot who is going from flying foodstuff and medication to smuggling fingers, the Kenyan relief employee who can’t support seeing the tawdry underside of his firm, and the evangelical Christian who involves Sudan to redeem slaves and falls in love with a charismatic insurgent commander.

As their fates intersect and our figuring out in their characters deepens, it turns into obvious that Acts of Faith is a type of infrequent novels that mix excessive ethical seriousness with impossible to resist narrative wizardry.
