really liked it

Would you rather be safe or brave?

Gary Haugen is the president of International Justice Mission (IJM) a human rights organization based in DC. In this book he challenges Christians to not be content with complacency, but to take seriously God's call "to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke." (Isaiah 58) Drawing from the stories of brave men and women who have risked much to free modern-day slaves and victims of sex-trafficking, he asks us to seriously consider how we may join in the struggle against injustice.

Though the book is certainly a plug for his own organization, the challenge goes beyond IJM. Are you called to be comfortable or to be part of the adventure? Would you rather be safe or brave?
