Gelin offers a wealth of historical, theological, and scientific information on his homeland


MAITLAND, FL— J.R. Gelin’s new book, HAITI ONCE AGAIN, ($11.99, paperback, 9781622300327) serves to present, discuss, and promote Haiti using concepts and ideas from historical research, biblical theology, and contemporary science. The text offers an analysis of relevant points in the country’s history, and makes the connection with the AIDS stigma and its religious counterpart—the myth of the divine curse.

“Readers will gain a comprehensive understanding of the first black republic of the world, whether they read it for leisure or in search of educational materials,” states the author. “The book connects the country’s glorious past with its current challenges, so the readers can understand why Haiti is great yet small, strong yet weak, and rich yet poor.”

Author J.R. Gelin holds a Ph.D. in plant sciences, and has published several scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. A former minister of the Church of God, he served for several years as assistant pastor in a small, but vibrant, Haitian church. Dr. Gelin is a native of Haiti, and resides in the United States with his family.
