''Accord Network is happy to recommend Suffer the Children as a solid resource to better understand child poverty, how to get involved, and what you can specifically do to help''

''The requirement to ''do justice, love mercy and walk humbly'' is not only a great mission statement for prosecutors, it is a command for us all. The Smiths have written a book that shines a light in a dark place to expose the plight of the most vulnerable and valuable members of any society: our children. In taking on hard topics like human trafficking, gang activity, and poverty, Suffer the Children gives us all a framework for a way forward to confront the hard truth: all of us have a responsibility to do more so that children do not suffer.''
--Benjamin R. David, Distict Attorney, New Hanover and Pender Counties, NC --Wipf and Stock Publishers
"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

"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'm grateful for the work and personal witness that Gary and Jane offer through this book and their continued service to others!
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.
