People everywhere have fallen captive to various things in their lives. Whether they have succumbed to unfulfilled dreams, untamed fears, unhealed wounds, or unhealthy habits, people allow these things to hold them prisoner even when they hurt them. Held ($18.99, paperback, 9781613792834; $28.99, hardcover, 9781613793053), a new Xulon title by author Eric Hahn, explains these gaping wounds exist in everyone, but in his book, the author takes a more detailed look at the children who are forced to live in the impoverished and frightening Mexican trafficking world. Although Americans may not have experienced the depravity suffered by the children of Mexico, the Hahns teach readers that God has an exciting adventure prepared for each individual; He wants everyone to make a difference in this world. Held relays the message that God can use any person if they are willing to walk in His purposes.
Held is an eye-opening and disturbing book that still manages to instill hope and a sense of obligation in its readers to make a difference. Eric and Elena Hahn, one couple who longed to walk free from what held them, ventured to the unlikeliest place: the epicenter of Mexico’s drug trafficking empire. There, in the most problematic community, the red light district, shattered homes lined the dirt streets where poverty, prostitution, drugs, and every vice and perversion known on earth held the people captive. Hahn and his wife manage to win the love of broken and desperate children who sin had beaten down and held captive in ways the Hahns could never fathom. Follow the Hahns’ journey as they struggle to reach Mexico’s lost children and, in so doing, discover the key to walking in freedom.
Eric and Elena Hahn founded His Precious Ones in 2004 to reach Mexico’s most lost and desperate young people with God’s love. After six years of living in Mexico, they now reside in Chicago with their newborn twins. Their ministerial focus is on teaching about the Father heart of God and mentoring the next generation.
