Fighting Slavery is a story of the Christian faith in action.
In recent years, a dramatic increase in human trafficking has given rise to one of the most tragic blights on contemporary society: "modern slavery".
With over thirty years' combined experience in fighting Human Trafficking, the editors of this book find themselves inspired by certain individuals who seek to combat this evil. Many are unsung heroes, caring little for profile, yet they are motivated by their faith and compassion to respond with action.
Including a chapter each from the editors, 22 modern day slavery fighters tell their stories from the cutting edge of combatting human trafficking. They explain how putting our faith and principles into action can bring about change and save lives. They also inspire readers to act, probably in very different ways, but no less valuable.
This book celebrates the achievements of men and women of faith who have given themselves to this vital cause. Over two hundred years ago William Wilberforce felt compelled by God to do the same. Today, God continues to raise up people like him, to fight modern slavery with modern tools and methods. It is a continuing battle, and this book shows how the battle is being won in so many ways.
