Suffer the Children
How We Can Help Improve the Lives of the World’s Impoverished Children
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Children are those most impacted by war, conflict, and crisis--and as Jesus' own example makes clear, it's not an option for us to turn a blind eye. Suffer the Children takes an unflinching look at the hardships faced by millions of children each day, but then also turns our gaze toward approaches and organizations that are creating lasting change. Clear, compelling, and thoroughly biblical, this book envisions a future in which children exchange their suffering for hope."
--Peter Greer, president & CEO, HOPE International; co-author of Mission Drift
"An excellent book full of fine biblical discussion, current socio-economic data, and powerful stories. A solid help for Christians wanting practical help on how they can act effectively to reduce poverty here and around the world."
--Ronald Sider, author of Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger
"Accord Network is happy to recommend Suffer the Children as a solid resource to better understand child poverty, how to get involved, and what you can specifically do to help'"
--Jon Creasy, from the Accord Network, 5/30/2017
"The requirement to "do justice, love mercy and walk humbly" is not only a great mission statement for prosecutors, it is a command for us all. The Smiths have written a book that shines a light in a dark place to expose the plight of the most vulnerable and valuable members of any society: our children. In taking on hard topics like human trafficking, gang activity, and poverty, Suffer the Children gives us all a framework for a way forward to confront the hard truth: all of us have a responsibility to do more so that children do not suffer."
--Benjamin R. David, Distict Attorney, New Hanover and Pender Counties, NC
