Days before the birth of his first son, writer and academic John M. Hull started to go blind. He would lose his sight entirely, plunged into darkness, unable to distinguish any sense of light or shadow. Soon, he had forgotten what his wife and daughter looked like. In Notes on Blindness, John reveals his profound sense of loss, his altered perceptions of time and space, of waking and sleeping, love, and companionship. With astonishing lucidity of thought and no self-pity, he describes the horror of being faceless, and asks what it truly means to be a husband and father.

What does praying to make a difference look like? It's unselfish praying; it rejects the status quo of oppression and injustice; it presupposes that change does not come easily; it anticipates God-orchestrated events; and it points us toward catalytic relationships. Effective praying to make a difference will require a commitment to time, effort, and expectation.
