Longwood, FL (PRWEB) December 2, 2009
A massive underground network of slavery cloaked in darkness and drenched in despair exists in this world today. Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing criminal industry in the world. This modern day slavery is a global problem and the United Nations believes it has reached epidemic proportions over the past decade. Xulon Press author Jennifer Brooks' Embracing an Aching Heart: Addressing the Horrors of Human Trafficking ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-370-9) is a compelling Bible study that will educate readers on the facts of human trafficking, equip them with a biblical perspective on how God views this criminal activity, and empower them with an understanding of how God has called His people to respond.
"The seven lessons in this book will encourage personal application to conform your thought patterns, attitudes, and actions toward the oppressed in society according to the teachings of Scripture," the author says. "The body of Christ cannot remain silent while countless victims suffer unimaginable brutality."
In this book, Brooks communicates truths of Scripture with passion and sincerity as she teaches from a heart in love with Jesus and a firsthand perspective of His life-changing power. With an unswerving conviction that the Word of God is living and active, she emphasizes personal application in all of her teachings.
Jennifer Brooks is the founder of Abundance In Him Ministries, Inc., and hosts the "Abundance In Him" radio program. She authored the in-depth, interactive Bible study, Stand In Awe.
