If you want a short, easy to read book that explains why you need to vote, question what you're being told and be engaged in your society this is it. "How Do You Kill 11 Million People?" is a compact teaching resource for schools and churches and an engaging discussion starter for holocaust day (January 27).
This is not just about what happened in the past but is a guide to making sure it doesn't happen again. The question asked isn't so much how do you kill so many people, but why did so many more people let it happen, and what have we still got to learn. Without taking any political side or promoting any particular agenda, Andy Andrews gives you a concise the history of the holocaust and how a nations failure to question the lies they were told led directly to the destruction of their own people.
Easy to read and with the sparse urgency of Wayne Brezinka's simple line-and-wash illustrations, the book explains how people even now will close their eyes and ears to the truth rather than challenge the lies they are told. The book does draw its evidence of growing political disengagement from American data - in the last quarter century, more than 100 million voters failed to do so, but is a wake-up call to Christians worldwide to participate in the process of holding their leaders to account.
With an author interview and thought provoking questions for discussion, the book is a practical introduction and exploration of the need for truth in society and government, and a warning of the consequences of its absence.
