WEST, Gerald O.. Senzeni na? Speaking of God 'what is right' and the 're-turn' of the stigmatising community in the context of HIV. Scriptura [online]. 2017, vol.116, pp.260-277. ISSN 2305-445X.

This article uses the Ujamaa Centre's work on the book of Job as a case-study for how the resources of biblical studies have enabled access to the biblical tradition of lament, and of how the lament of people living with HIV has posed new questions to biblical scholarship. The article traces a interpretive trajectory from embodied theologies of acceptance (Job 1:21) to the emergence of embodied theologies of lament (Job 3), tracking how the book of Job has provided support groups ofpeople living positively with HIV to speak of and to God, speaking of and to God "what is right" (Job 42:7) as did Job.

Keywords : HIV; Job; Retribution; Stigma; Protest.
