Great and Eye-Opening

by BenYouthPastor on Jul 17, 2009

From the first to the last page, this is a book I had difficulty putting down. It is very well-written and contains much factual data without getting lost in mere evidence. Rather, Skinner uses the gathered data to support the bulk of the book, the stories of the people affected by modern-day slavery. It's in the stories that this book finds its strength and its vitality. There are the stories of those desperate individuals bound by slavery but also the stories of those brave souls fighting this contemporary issue I am not interested in politics at all, and so I found myself struggling during those sections of the book devoted to the more political side of things. And yet, even during those times, the book read like a novel examining the lives of those politicians involved rather than a documentary of their efforts. The human story is what most grabbed my attention and my heart throughout this book. I found myself nearly in tears when reading of the families in Haiti. (I had to put the book down and pray a good half-hour before I was able to go on.) I was angry and mad at the traffickers in Moldova, where more women become slaves than live as free. Read this book. It will not disappoint you. It will mess you up, though. My prayer is that God will use this book to open the eyes of many people to bring an end to this great evil in our own age.
