In the war-ravaged African nation of Sudan, slavery is a way of life. Islamic fundamentalists in the north capture women and children-many of them Christian-in the south and sell them to other northern Muslim as servants and concubines. There they live on table scraps and are forced to convert to Islam. Their stories are devastating, yet their capacity for hope is an inspiration to the world. Let My People Go is the gripping, heartrending, sometimes infuriating first person account of a 1997 mission to return Sudanese slaves to their southern homeland, buy them, and set them free in the name of the Lord. It is a story you will never forget.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
