    1. I wish I could give this more than 3 stars. I was expecting a book about the Dalits, human trafficking and the Church in India - what I got was half a book about the Dalits, human trafficking and the Church in India, and half a book about an American pastor and a wealthy church in California.If you're looking for an introduction to the Indian caste system and how the Church can respond, then this book might be for you. But I found myself skim-reading whole chapters and frequently getting annoyed [...]

    2. the #1 movie I want to see this yearSo, I've been on this kick about learning as much as I can about global suffering (human trafficking, gender-based violence, etc.) and figuring out a way I can do something from my home here in Rexburgia. I'm watching Half the Sky, learning more about Love146, and then I ran into THIS MOVIE TRAILER.It's being promoted by the same group that did Fireproof and Courageous, which I loved. So since this is exactly where I'm at in my life - and I was looking forward [...]

    3. The lowest caste in India, called the Dalit people, count 300,000,000. Normally the Dalits (untouchables) are excluded from education, obliged to perform the lowest of jobs, exploited in sex-trafficking, slavery, discrimination, and poverty. I saw them when visiting Hyderabad in April 2008. Friends Church Yorba Linda, California pastor Matthew Cork visited the megacity a couple of months earlier and was struck (too) by what he saw. He committed his to partner with The Dalit Freedom Network to bu [...]

    4. My passion is for children. So much so that I am working on obtaining my MSW so I can work in missions with orphanages through China and Africa. I have read several books about the caste system in other countries but this book brought tears to my eyes. It was wrote as a personal testimony to the way Christ works and moves in your life even when you do not know the hows or the whys. The book reads like a movie, filled with heart breaking stories of struggle, abuse, and misfortune all while you se [...]

    5. Honestly, I'm more interested to know about the progression of schools that they built for Dalit Community in India than reading over and over again how the author found God. It was somewhat annoying because when reading this, I'm expecting that I will be burst in tears and grateful that somewhere in the world, people still care. The part where they made this whole journey into the film is interesting. It is one of the effective ways to understand this issue. The caste system has been rooted in [...]

    6. Excellent, heart rending story about the plight of the "untouchable" people of India and a vision to rescue children through sharing the Gospel and developing schools.

    7. Great book but not what I was expecting. It had some life changing thoughts such as "Is your vision worth dying for?" I am looking forward to watching the movie "Not Today"

    8. Loved the start of this book about the untouchables then Cork kept writing about his church in the US. I wish he'd left all that out and focused on India.
