I absolutely love to read books! I think God uses books to touch our hearts deeply and stir something in us. When I started reading books about human trafficking a couple of years ago, my life totally changed. God put a passion in my heart to do something to fight against the injustice of human trafficking and modern-day slavery, and I’m so glad He did. So here’s another book that touched my heart . . .
About a month ago I read In Our Backyard and found it to be an excellent book on the subject of human trafficking, specifically from a Christian perspective. Nita Belles did a wonderful job weaving together stories and facts in a very readable way. I learned some new things about “Stockholm Syndrome”, read an amazing story about how God changed the life of a pimp, and was reminded again to follow Jesus’ example in serving others. I really encourage you to get the book, read it, and share it with someone else!
