This is the true story of an undercover investigator's experiences infiltrating the multi-billion-dollar global sex industry. It is a story of triumph for the children and young teens released from a life of slavery and the rescuer who freed many hundreds of victims leading to the prosecution of dozens of perpetrators. And it is a story of haunting despair for those left behind in corrupt systems of law enforcement. It is the personal story of Daniel Walker, one man who followed a path of costly discipleship, agonizing failure and unlikely redemption. And it is a challenge to God's people to join in the battle that all might be freed.

"In our age in which it is rapidly becoming a lost art, the importance of conversation should not be overlooked," writes C. Christopher Smith in the foreword of Read Up, Volume 2. "It is in conversation that our ideas and language and dreams get forged into common structures that shape the life of our communities—church, neighborhood, workplace, etc. . . . Reading is a sort of fuel for these conversations, providing energy in the form of words and ideas that bring life to and clarify our conversations." Conversations about good books refresh us as we glean wisdom and receive understanding from one another. In reading groups we don't have to hope someone wants to hear our opinions—it's expected! And even better, the idea or concept that we missed in our reading is often what our fellow readers will discover and share with us. Our "aha" moments are multiplied in conversation. Even in disagreement—maybe especially when we disagree—there is opportunity to learn from one another as we seek to understand different points of view. "The book that you hold in your hands—be it in print or in digital format—is a wonderful conversation starter," Smith continues. "Not only does it recommend some really good and timely books, at least some of which will be pertinent to the shared life of your church, it also highlights some questions about these books that will surely get your conversation rolling. I pray that this little volume will stir up many conversations, leading you into more questions, but ultimately into deeper and richer faithfulness in your local church communities." Whether your group is looking to discuss contemporary issues, history, fiction or memoirs, Read Up, Volume 2 has you covered, with descriptions, discussion questions, author conversations or excerpts for more than 30 thoughtful books. The diverse assortment of titles in this second volume of Read Up will provide you and your group with books that lead to both stimulating reading and meaningful conversation. Bring Read Up to your next book club and get the conversation started.

In a hotel room in Bangalore, a California pastor wrestles with God—and himself . . . “I draw in a long, slow breath of Indian air. The room is dark and still. I have only one thing more to say: ‘Lord, I’m in. I am so in.’” When Matthew Cork, lead pastor of a church in a comfortable corner of Orange County, first encountered the Dalit (untouchable) people of India on a visit to Hyderabad, he was shaken to his core. Children begging at the airport. Elderly women sweeping gutters. Families living in discarded concrete pipes. He learned of the systemic bondage they had been in for thousands of years. As Matthew came face-to-face with this suffering, he knew God was summoning him to help. He knew that the greatest hope for the Dalits lay in educating their children—something long closed to them. So God gave Matthew a vision that would transform him and his church, taking them on a journey from the suburban comfort of the US to the slums and villages of India. Today a new movement is sweeping over the world, a movement to set oppressed people free—free from slavery, sex-trafficking, poverty, and political and social injustice. Why Not Today is an invitation—and a challenge—to join in the efforts to bring freedom and hope to people suffering all over world. Perhaps God has stirred a passion in you to help the poor and overcome injustice. This story shows what God can do when we are willing to respond to that stirring. Why not start today?

2014 Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year ("Also Recommended," Justice) Slavery didn't end in 1833, when William Wilberforce's decades-long campaign finally resulted in the Slavery Abolition Act. It didn't end in 1863, when Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. It didn't end in 1949, when the United Nations declared trafficking "incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human person." The sad truth is, slavery never ended. It just went underground, where it continues to exploit powerless men, women and children in horrific ways throughout the world. Now for the good news: you have power. In Refuse to Do Nothing, "Abolitionist Mamas" Shayne Moore and Kimberly Yim share their stories of coming to terms with the power available to them in their normal, everyday lives to illuminate the shadows where those who traffic in people hide compel corporations to fight slavery in how their products are made motivate politicians to fight for human dignity mobilize friends and strangers alike to fight slavery at home and throughout the world Slavery doesn't end without a fight. But get to know Shayne and Kimberly and their abolitionist friends, and you'll find the power God grants to all who fight for the powerless, and the joy awaiting those who refuse to do nothing.
