    " What a great book!!! I can't recommend it more. Be careful though, you might just find that your bored sedentary life is the cause for your spiritual melancholy. "

    " Great book about steping out in faith and making a difference in the worlds evils(child slavery and sex trafficing) You can learn not to be paralized by the size of a problem but to begin and change one life at a time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 1/24/2014

    " I am a big fan of Gary Haugen and International Justice Mission. This is not a difficult read from the stand point of understanding it. (It is a one or two sitting read.) It is difficult because it is convicting. I encourage you to read it. For the Christian, who feels like there should be more to the Christian life, there is. Haugen believes Christians have chosen a life of safety and comfort, but God is calling us into a life of courage as we step out in faith and confront the darkness in our world. "

    " interesting to read this after completing Richard Hearst's "Hole in Our Gospel"...continuing to be challenged... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 1/17/2014

    " The author is the founder/head of International Justice Mission, an organization I strongly support. I think the reason I didn't give this a higher rating is that I heard him speak about a year ago, and it was the same message. There are some great stories of unsung heroes in the fight for justice around the world, and two great questions: 1) Will I miss the adventure while I'm on the journey? and 2) Do you want to live safe or brave? "

    " excellent - crucial conversation we must be having as believers "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 1/13/2014

    " Gary Haugen writes a great book about Justice and how real justice is brought to real needy people. Currently it seems politics has us focussed on Americans without healthcare, or losing their homes, or illegals invading somebody's land. But Haugen points out that the really needy people are the millions of people that are slaves, or forced into child prostitution, or forced into certain death poverty. It is true he shows us how we can involved, and perhaps, our country's woes might sound a bit namby-pamby on the world stage. "

    " A invigorating book about following Christ into the adventure of doing justice work. Highly recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/2/2014

    " This is a heart wretching look at the issues of child prostitution and slavery. It is a challenge to be the courageous to stand for the oppressed in our world and do something! It talks a lot about International Justice Mission and their fight for the lives of children and people world-wide. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 12/16/2013

    " I think I will end up reading this book a lot. It was a very necessary pep talk, reminder, and challenge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Knowles | 12/8/2013

    " Gary Haugen is the founder of the International Justice Mission which uses legal aid to break the bonds of modern day slavery and oppression in other countries. "

    " Soul-stirring and challenging. This is one that you should read if you find yourself sometimes callous toward the down-trodden. "

    " Okay- I loved this! One of the most encouraging books and one that hopefully started a little fire in me. Must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Robbins | 9/20/2013

    " Great book. It discusses an issue that has been mostly overlooked by most churches and Christians (including myself) and challenges us to do something about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/17/2013

    " I love Gary's writing and thought process. While I enjoyed this book, much of the material was familiar ground to me. That being said, it was still thought provoking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meepspeeps | 11/25/2012

    " I liked his Biblical interpretations of what justice and injustice are. He definitely called me to act with his question about being brave or staying safe. It would be good for someone considering a major sacrifice to change careers from for-profit to direct justice-seeking work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 2/16/2012

    " In a compelling and moving book Gary Haugen shows how passion and action for justice in the world can be a cure for the bland spiritual life so many Christians experience. A great adventure is in store for us if will simply stand up and choose it. "

    " What a wonderfully encouraging book filled with convicting messages that I knew but needed reminding of. I truly want to act on my faith. I have but I need to do more. This book just made me more antsy than ever. :: sigh :: It was excellent but so short that I was sad it was over. "
