Format: Hardcover
Don't read this slender hardcover, CHANGING THE FACE OF HUNGER, unless you are ready to change your life.

In 1984, Tony Hall (a congressman for almost 24 years) went to Ethiopia to help ferry supplies to a camp run by the World Vision Christian relief organization. What he experienced changed his life.

Imagine doctors who must work in an area fenced in by barbed wire because of the press of Ethiopians outside desperately trying to thrust their children into the hands of anyone who can help save them from starvation.

Imagine that these thousands of severely malnourished people are suffering from dehydration, dysentery, malaria, cholera and tuberculosis.

Imagine doctors trying to pick the six or seven children they can save each day.

Imagine that everywhere you go to try and help, there is perpetual civil war. You are a moving target and frequently have to dive out of your vehicle to avoid being killed by gunfire.

Imagine that this is not the worst.

Imagine after seeing this, you drive to where tens of thousands of Ethiopians are waiting in the blazing sun, hoping for food. All are malnourished. Most are close to death. Many are nearly naked because they have no clothes. Imagine that 25 children die before your eyes in the next few hours.

Imagine seeing children who are dying alone. Their parents are already dead.

This is not a book for the faint of heart. I was in tears by the second page. But then, perhaps it is a book for the faint of heart...and for all of us. Perhaps it is time that we let ourselves be moved by the terrible facts of hunger and injustice.

But we don't know what to do. We aren't even aware of the people who need our help.

Tony P. Hall is one of those rarest of creatures, a true humanitarian who used his positions (a Congressman from Ohio and Ambassador to the U.N) of power and influence to aid the world's poor and hungry. Changing the Face of Hunger inspires us to action to address modern day's greatest injustice, that too many of the world's peoples will die unnecessarily as a result of hunger and disease. Tony Hall's call for us to follow the example of Mother Teresa and "do what's in front of us" in combating life's injustices is today's clarion calling. Read this book and change the world.

The scenes described by Tony Hall, and his actions taken during the various events, provide compelling examples of relevant moral leadership in today's political arena.

His advice to the Democratic party should be heeded by any politician in either party who truly wants to make a difference; it is sage advice, applicable to anyone wanting to live purposefully.

High marks for this book, for its author and for those who read it.

I am not a Democrat. No way. Sometimes I think I am a Republican. More frequently, I claim to be a Libertarian. Most of the time I am disgusted with the whole thing, constantly dismayed to see the extent to which both major parties part with their own principles and the third party is ineffective in applying theirs.

Tony Hall is a Democrat most Evangelical voters could embrace. He's pro-life, and highly principled in his service to our country and to the poor. He served in Congress, representing the Dayton, Ohio area, for over 2 decades. Early in his career in Congress, he became convicted that his task was not just to serve his district or his country, but to use his position to serve the poor and oppressed around the world. With Mother Theresa as his model, who said, "You do the thing that's in front of you," he has worked around the world to address hunger. Most of us don't have the kind of opportunities in front of us as he has had as a congressman and ambassador, but we can certainly do what's in front of us.

It is refreshing to read of a congressman who does so much out of conviction, and he acknowledges that he has received some criticism for not paying as much attention to his home district constituents. However, he was reelected several times; they must have appreciated and approved of what he was doing. I do tend to be a little cynical, though. Hall spends a lot of time tooting his own horn. I wish I knew more about his policies and votes during his time in Congress. My problem with guys like this are their reliance on government as the solution to every problem. He pays lip service to individual action and private initiatives, but most he's a fan of government programs and intervention. That's the correct perspective for a Dem, but that's why I am not one!
