About the Author
Dr. K.P. Yohannan has been crisscrossing the globe for the last 40 years, challenging the body of Christ to discipleship. His call to a radical lifestyle with an all-out commitment to Jesus has left its impact on nearly every continent. To the Church caught up by the tidal waves of compromise and self-preservation, Yohannan's life message is as fresh as today's podcast yet as timeless as the scriptural mandate itself.
Yohannan is the founder and international director of Gospel for Asia, a Christian mission organization that has brought the Good News of Christ to millions in South Asia over the last three decades.
Born in India, Dr. Yohannan, at the age of 16, responded to the Lord's call to serve Him in North India. In 1974, he came to the United States, where he received his theological training and pastored a church for four years.
When the Lord reminded Yohannan of the countless millions in Asia still waiting to learn of His love, he resigned his pastorate, and he and his wife, Gisela, started Gospel for Asia. Today, the ministry supports thousands of national workers and vibrant congregations throughout South Asia. Additionally, Gospel for Asia's Bridge of Hope program cares for tens of thousands of children, helping them break out of the generational curses of poverty and hopelessness.
Dr. Yohannan is a prolific writer with more than 200 books published in Asia. Yohannan's landmark book, Revolution in World Missions, is an international bestseller that has literally changed the course of mission history in our generation.

No Longer A Slumdog is a rescue title offering hope from a slumdog existence to great provision. Gospel For Asia began Bridge Of Hope from a dream the author had with the directive to reach out to children in dire need from all over Asia. It's located in the slum and has enabled children to get an education, adequate food, and a stable and safe place to grow. These Dalit children that once had no hope of ever becoming literate can now enjoy an education with many options while receiving the life saving gospel message that frees them of Hinduism's bondages. It's organization is a worthy cause to sponsor a child and the testimonies given will enlighten your heart.
I requested a copy of this book from the publisher, Gfa Books. (less)
There are not accurate words to describe how I felt once I finished reading. However, I can honestly say that K.P. drives home a beautiful message to pray for the children in this book and their families. Seeing the impact a child sponsorship makes on not just a child, but families and communities was astounding as story after story was shared from a child or family member. I love how there was a chapter written just about the importance of sharing Christ while help meeting basic needs. It’s through that action that Gospel for Asia is transforming so many lives and not just on an earthly level, but a spiritual one.
If you are looking for a book that shows the power of prayer as well as the power of Christ’s love in breaking bondage's, then I highly recommend this one.
*(I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts expressed are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.)*
The beginning of the book was very disturbing to me. I did not like reading about the horrible lives these children are forced to endure. But, these stories are necessary to show what life is like for these people. Further into the book, hope begins to arise as the author shares the work of Gospel for Asia and how they are making a difference in so many lives.
The suffering and anguish aren't shown much in the book but throw in as an occasional scrap to remind you of what may be happening and to keep your interest. Instead the book more healthily tries to catch your attention to be able to help the children of these people who are the first victims and sometimes the last while also trying to encourage you to settle the pain of your heart by sponsoring one of the children during their years of education and how much of the Gospel is needed to be stretched out to the hopeless millions.
Although it is sad I feel I must be callous for even though I feel and my heart is wrenched with these people my own heart reminds me of those at home in the First World Country of those who fall through the cracks. It is love, suffering and death that are known by every language.
The writing is simple and beautiful while it will catch your attention. The book is meant to be read while watching the suggested videos mentioned in the chapters or reading along a part of their website. I love the set-up that brings into making this an interactive book instead of one where you are just following along.
