A year 2000 Finalist in the ECPA book competition! The good news about injustice is that God is against it. God is in the business of using the unlikely to accomplish justice and mercy. In this tenth-anniversary edition of Gary Haugen's challenging and encouraging book he offers stories of courageous Christians who have stood up for justice in the face of human trafficking, forced prostitution, racial and religious persecution, and torture. This expanded edition brings up to date his work in calling for the body of Christ to act. Throughout, he provides concrete guidance on how ordinary Christians can rise up to seek justice throughout the world.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m passionate about the International Justice Mission and their work to fight injustice in this world. I went to their 2010 prayer gathering back in April, and was blown away by the passion and commitment of the people in the organization. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed and discouraged about the plight of human trafficking, this book is for you. Not only does Haugen explain the reasons behind the problem and the oppression, he offers tangible ways for the everyday reader to get involved. Yes, most of the work is being done by established organizations with resources such as IJM, but there are ways to get involved. He doesn’t shy away from specifics, and much of it is hard to read. Haugen is a Christian, and he backs up his reasons for pursuing justice with Biblical quotes (Micah 6:8, for example). But the message extends so far beyond the church, I highly recommend it for, well, everyone. There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in history. This is everyone’s problem. And if we each do a little but, we can greatly relieve the suffering of so many.
