Last November, I posted my enthusiasm for a new book by Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Yim that was scheduled for release in February 2013.
You can read what I said here.
Today, my copy arrived in the mail ahead of schedule, and my earlier enthusiasm remains undiminished. I am thrilled to be able to recommend it again to you!
Refuse to Do Nothing takes us beyond being upset about human trafficking to see that we really can―and as Christians actually should―do something about it. Instead of helplessly wringing our hands over these appalling atrocities, Refuse to Do Nothing provides the concrete tools we need to become part of the solution.
Elisa Morgan’s relentlessly passionate “She did what she could” foreword may be enough to move you to action. Shayne and Kimberly not only inform us of the oppression of so many, they offer practical ideas for how we can actually make a real difference.

Here are some of the endorsements:
“Beautifully answers the aching question many of us ask: ‘What can I do?'”
“The issue of modern slavery is far more horrific than most of us can imagine. But I believe it’s far more hopeful than most of us can imagine too. Read this book reflectively and join those who believe you do have something to offer.”
“Refuse to Do Nothing is not a comfortable read. It is intended to open our eyes to the brutal world of human trafficking, to break our hearts over what grieves God’s heart and to make us uneasy if we do nothing. I pray that God will use this powerful and practical book to ignite in us a fierce resolve to engage this battle and that we will not rest until the last captive is freed.”
Besides purchasing and reading the book, you might also consider attending the Philadelphia Justice Conference, February 22-23, 2013. You’ll have the opportunity to hear Kimberly and Shayne talk about their new book during the pre-conference sessions, along with an incredible line-up of justice activists.
I am personally looking forward to this conference and hope to see you there!
