Freedom from Exploitation
Confronting Human Trafficking in Our Midst
We live in an age marked by injustice and exploitation. Human trafficking thrives in the shadows of our communities. Millions are being exploited by those who see them only as commodities to be bought and sold. How can Christians respond?
Authoritative and deeply compassionate, Freedom from Exploitation offers an actionable roadmap for believers in pursuit of justice and mercy. Drawing from biblical principles and contemporary examples, it urges the church to transcend complacency and embody Christ’s teachings. The insights within these pages will guide Christian communities in taking up the cause for the oppressed, equipping them to make a tangible difference.
Marion Carson writes with an urgency that matches the seriousness of the evil that she confronts. She gives us a crucial resource for those committed to fighting exploitation and honoring the inherent dignity of every human being. A provocative exploration, this booklet is more than a call to action—it's a beacon of hope and a manifesto for all who seek to live out their faith in a world crying out for justice and compassion.
Such an excellent, compact and practical summary of the complex issue of human trafficking! Dr. Carson has challenged the church and individuals to be Christ’s presence in restoring the lives of traumatized victims and changing systems of exploitation. Her practical advice and pointers to resources mean that Everyone Can DO Something towards eliminating modern day slavery! Make this your beginning step towards being a part of this most important movement!

For years, Marion has worked with victims and survivors of international sex trafficking. This is a mandatory and inspiring read for all who choose to stand up against religious and cultural norms and "set the oppressed free" in action and attitude. Afterall, we are complicit if we do nothing.Ruth Robb CEO and Co-Founder, Azalea, Luton, England, UK
