"Combining startling numbers with impassioned voices, this book makes the daunting task of working for global justice possible and within reach, as the authors themselves are mothers of children in the home." (Josh Ross, The Christian Chronicle, September 2013)
"Refuse to Do Nothing: Finding Your Power to Abolish Modern-Day Slavery delivers on its promise and not only arms you with the facts about slavery's pervasive influence, but offers tools and resources available to each person and steps we can take to join the rescue operation of its victims and the defeat of its perpetrators." (Andrea Hunter, Worship Leader Magazine, May 2013)
"Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Yim write with candor about their own journey from 'suburban mamas' to modern-day abolitionists. . . . The authors present their story and information on how to go forward in an engaging, easy-to-process manner." (Chloe Pfifer, Horizons Magazine, March/April 2013)
"This book educates, inspires, and gives practical 'how-to' steps for getting involved in the fight against one of the worst crimes against humanity . . . a crime that is going on right now under our noses. Every person who is involved and/or interested in the tragedy of human trafficking should get this book." (Frank Viola, from his Patheos blog, February 15, 2013)
"Moore and Yim represent the heart of the biblical advocate and beautifully answer the aching question many of us ask: But what can I do?" (Cindy Breilh, national director, Women of Vision, World Vision)
"Kim and Shayne exemplify a long tradition of ordinary citizens refusing to sit on the sidelines while the poor suffer. They are relentless and an inspiration for us all." (Justin Dillon, director, Call + Response, and CEO, Slavery Footprint)
"Refuse to Do Nothing offers the new anti-human trafficking activist a careful foundation for understanding and evaluating how to enter the battle and make her effort count. The authors build a solid case for individual responsibility in our own backyard. Additionally, the reflective exercises provide opportunity for a meaningful pause that fosters sustainable commitments rather than emotional highs that fade with time and distance. This is the small group study guide that I've been looking for and will recommend to students, community service groups and churches." (Sandie Morgan, director, Global Center for Women & Justice)
Shayne and Kim have found their voice in helping us recognize where our worlds may have grown small, and how, through practical choices and conversations, we can thrive as conduits of change as we make justice an everyday habit." (Betty Ann Boeving, founder of the Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition)
"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!" (Carolyn Custis James, author of Half the Church) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
