Sex trafficking. We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable, but they are not without hope.

The White Umbrella tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. It describes the pain and the strength of these young women and those who held the "white umbrella" of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration.

This book offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and a desire to help. It is an ideal resource for individuals or organizations seeking to learn what they can do to assist these victims in becoming whole again.

This is not a comprehensive view of the problem of sex trafficking, but a look at an American community where women have stepped forward to provide a safe haven for less fortunate women & girls. Sex trafficking is the 2nd most profitable illegal activity in the world, affecting 5 - 9 billion individuals each year. This is a serious worldwide problem which is not addressed in this locally focused book. http://citybookreview.com/2013/02/the-white-umbrella-walking-with-survivors-of-sex-trafficking/

The White Umbrella offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and children and a desire to help. It is a resource for those seeking to learn what they can do to assist these victims in becoming whole again, and will help anyone trying to connect in a meaningful way with someone who is in crisis. Crucially, it points to Jesus as the healer and redeemer of the abused and the suffering. http://thegospelcoalition.org/book-reviews/review/the_white_umbrella

Thankfully, The White Umbrella offers more than just stories of exploitation and suffering, but concrete advice for how to connect with and come alongside sex trafficking survivors on their road to healing. Crucially, it points to Jesus as the healer and redeemer of the abused and the suffering, the one who is both the source of hope and healing and the motivation for us to wake up and work for freedom for those in captivity. http://justinholcomb.com/2012/09/21/book-highlight-the-white-umbrella/
