The Not On Our Watch Christian Companion provides biblical reflections on the movement to end genocide in Darfur and beyond. The Companion connects churches, fellowships, and individual Christians to the global movement to end genocide in Darfur and other crimes against humanity in Africa. The Companion expands on New York Times bestseller Not on Our Watch: The Mission to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond by actor Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda) and Africa expert John Prendergast, co-founder of the ENOUGH Project. The book is based on eight weeks of study. Each chapter constitutes a weekly study session designed to guide group discussion and reflection about Darfur and the movement to end genocide. Each session includes a biblical passage for reflection, a lesson applying the passage to Darfur, a weekly action step, and vignettes by refugees, activists and Christians who have awakened to the problem of genocide and become active in the Darfur movement.
