Listener Opinions

    " Definitely a good book to bring along whenever the right time comes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trice | 1/30/2014

    " Definitely feels like light reading in a certain sense - that is, it isn't a great philosophical work. But it is a strong Biblically grounded book on the practical work to right injustices in the world - it is intended for Christians seeking to understand our part in a suffering world, and in that I think it is a good start. I still think I'd recommend John Stott's Human Rights & Human Wrongs: Major Issues for a New Century over this one (he even gives a very generous nod to the work of Haugen's organization at the end (which was how I heard about them initially)), but then again, this one has some really strong practical pointers and descriptions in the last few chapters regarding how they actually go about their work, working through the international Christian community as well as through local secular entities, so in that sense it stands alone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 1/30/2014

    " Eye opening and perspective changing look at injustice in our world today. It is a book of hope, however, as it tells the story of how to fight such injustice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 1/27/2014

    " There were some good aspects of this book. However, I felt that he didn't really address the kinds of injustice that we still experience in the United States - he was more focused upon extremely violent kinds of injustice or things that were foreign. Toward the end of the book I really felt like his point was to either recruit people to his organization or collection donations from others. It seemed like he was telling me that I couldn't fight against injustice because I wasn't qualified, but I could give money and prayer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/25/2014

    " A great resource for those of us who are passionately concerned about issues of justice but just don't know how to help. Practical tips on engaging the Body of Christ to do justice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/17/2014

    " I couldn't decide whether this is a 4 or 5-star book. It is definitely eye-opening and calls you to action. However, I think I read it over too long a time period to get the full impact of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noel | 1/17/2014

    " Interesting reading. It follows the author through his time in some really horrible places, notable post-genocide Rwanda. My only problem with this book was that it was heavily biased towards missionaries and faith-based Evangelical NGOs. While I'm sure some of them do good work, the secular NGOs are no less legitimate in their operations and the service they bring to those in need. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 1/10/2014

    " Gary Haugen provides a realistic view into the world of injustice that many in the west know exist, but only know only as a concept. Sobering descriptions of the inhumane events that do transpire, and simple guidelines for contribution to bringing justice for any walk of life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 12/13/2013

    " Compassionately and intelligently addresses the problem of why God allows evil. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly Panter | 12/12/2013

    " I am an International Justice Mission junkie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Lesch | 12/6/2013

    " This book is one of the major reasons I work for International Justice Mission. I would recommend this book to anyone. We must have our eyes opened to the injustices that are rampant around the world and be moved to action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darrel Bartell | 11/29/2013

    " eye opening book about human slavery and human trafficking, and the efforts of IJM to bring those people to justice "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg | 9/30/2013

    " Opened my eyes to the injustices occurring around the world and in our own backyard. While one could easily become disheartened by these horrid facts, the book leaves you with a feeling of hope "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Cosner | 8/7/2013

    " This book was extremely difficult to read because of the overwhelmingly depressing content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari Shepherd | 4/16/2013

    " This book was not very practical for the everyday person but it did have some good chapters on God's character regarding justice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil Darke | 3/29/2013

    " Great book on how to fight against injustice around the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 10/25/2012

    " A great book about institutional injustice that we are generally blind to. Also, good in terms of helping the numb, immune, or overwhelmed person understand the issues of injustice and what can be done about it at a very human and ordinary level. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bj | 10/23/2012

    " The author found the organization, International Justice Mission, which does work around the globe with justice systems, improving them and helping those who are victims. This is a great read about justice and how "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.R. Dial | 7/21/2012

    " This is the book that started it all. A change in my faith. A change in the way I view God. Read Chapter 8 about understanding evil in the world. Perhaps the most important chapter of any non-fiction book I have ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank | 7/12/2012

    " This book not only informs but also gives hope and ways to relieve the pain and suffering in our world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Henry Jin | 6/29/2011

    " A good introduction to the topic - however, does not present the broader picture, but merely one aspect of it. "
