"Children are those most impacted by war, conflict, and crisis--and as Jesus' own example makes clear, it's not an option for us to turn a blind eye. Suffer the Children takes an unflinching look at the hardships faced by millions of children each day, but then also turns our gaze toward approaches and organizations that are creating lasting change. Clear, compelling, and thoroughly biblical, this book envisions a future in which children exchange their suffering for hope." --Peter Greer, president & CEO, HOPE International; co-author of Mission Drift
"An excellent book full of fine biblical discussion, current socio-economic data, and powerful stories. A solid help for Christians wanting practical help on how they can act effectively to reduce poverty here and around the world." --Ronald Sider, author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

"Suffer the Children" is incredibly well-researched with facts, data, quotes, and footnotes throughout its pages. Even with the quantity of studies, statistics, and world-wide trends quoted, the book is readable and flows well. In other words, the research supports and thrusts the purpose forward rather than bogging it down. Every chapter concludes with very simple and practical ways that we can respond and do something now. As moving as the stories and information are, I was not left feeling hopeless or in despair. I am inspired to keep stepping into the situations where I am able to help, knowing through Gary and Jane's example that it will make a difference.
I was powerfully affected by the changes being made in one community in North Carolina by the vision and hard work and influence of a district
attorney. Through his influence and refusal to accept "the way things are" the crime rate , violence and crack cocaine usage have all decreased in his community. This is a good book to read for anyone who wonders what one person can do to make a difference.
