    Stronger Than Death: Rachel Pieh Jones in Chicago

    Wheaton College ⁄ Wheaton, IL


    Amid a volatile mix of disease, war, and religious fundamentalism in the Horn of Africa, what difference could one woman make? In Stronger Than Death: How Annalena Tonelli Defied Terror and Tuberculosis in the Horn of Africa, Rachel Pieh Jones details the story of a woman whose larger-than-life example challenges our assumptions about aid and development, Christian–Muslim relations, and what it means to put one’s faith into practice. Brought vividly back to life through Jones’s meticulous reporting and her own letters, Annalena Tonelli presents us with a new measure of success and commitment.
