Invited by Worship.com to take a look at Dr. K.P. Yohannan's, No Longer A Slumdog, I said yes! I think I can definitely say the book is a game changer. It's riveting to read about the hearts and lives of young children on India.
Read about an abandoned girl who found hope at the end of the railroad tracks, a young boy who escaped after years of forced servitude, and many others whose lives have been redeemed. You'll be captivated by this powerful move of God as K.P. Yohannan leads you on a journey through the slums and villages of South Asia into the hearts and lives of these precious children.
Beginning of Book
Sometime in your life, hope that you might see one
starved man, the look on his face when the bread finally
arrives. Hope that you might have baked it or bought
or even kneaded it yourself. For that look on his face,
for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread, you
might be willing to lose a lot, or suffer a lot,
or die a little, even.

No Longer a Slumdog: Bringing Hope to Children in Crisis
I'm looking forward to posting a review on this one soon. I'm sure I will be grabbing some kleenex as I read through the book. Have you read a book lately that has grabbed your heart?
