I read Jim's account, and while possibly true, I find the lens through which he sees the event as Western, simplified, and largely unfamiliar.
I got the same feeling while reading Jim's account of how he found a home for the unwanted baby. He met an American expat living in China whose wife lived in the United States. The man explained that they wanted to adopt, but that it seemed to take a long time to do the paperwork, etc. Jim told him he could adopt right away. Now, I'm sure that most readers familiar with the adoption might at this point be wondering how in the world this adoption could be completed.
Adoptive families from China will no doubt be interested in knowing what his book says about his work to bring unwanted babies into China's orphanages in order for them to be adopted internationally. While he is quite outspoken in private conversations and correspondence about the destination of most of the children he has supposedly rescued, the book is almost completely silent about his interactions with China's orphanages. He does recount one story involving Yoda, his protective intelligence officer, and an orphanage in Chongqing Municipality.Read more ›
It grieves me to see the body of Christ once again being taken in by a charlatan claiming to have “inside” knowledge of clandestine operations and some secret “deeper” insight into current headlines that he is willing to share with his gullible Christian audience.
My baloney detector tells me that Mr. Garrow is another Tony Anthony / Ergun Caner / Mike Warnke clone.
His claims of having been nominated for a Nobel Prize are ludicrous; anyone can send in a submission for any person to the Nobel Committee to be considered, but for that person to be seriously considered the name has to go through a vetting process that is fairly rigorous, and there have to be corroborating witnesses from a variety of sources.
I suspect that the person sending in the name of Jim Garrow for the Nobel Prize is none other than Jim Garrow.
Please do not discredit the witness of Christ by having this phoney person on your show again. I know that he has been making the rounds lately on blogtalk radio and is the latest fad in Christian radio pop culture, but I believe this man is a phoney, do some research, he needs to be exposed.

for sure. Everything about his operation is very secretive and
mysterious, which is a great cover for him and his fantasy. Anyone who knows anything about China adoption will know that this story is pure fiction.
Pink Pagoda is NOT a non profit or charity... it is a for profit outfit that exists to make him money by fleecing well meaning, but gullible, people.
For God's sake... the man claims Obama tried to nuke the Eastern seaboard but magic caused them to all fall into the ocean instead. And that the President has tried to kill him... if that were true, he would be dead.
