With the dawning of the 21st Century a new human rights movement burst unexpectedly onto the global stage. Initially motivated by concern for persecuted Christians around the world, unlikely alliances emerged, and the movement grew to encompass a broader quest for human rights. Now, American evangelicals provide grassroots muscle for causes joined by a wide array of activists-from Jews to Catholics, feminists to Pentecostals, African American leaders to Tibetan Buddhists-in the most important human rights movement since the end of the Cold War. Given unprecedented insider access, author Allen D. Hertzke charts the rise of this faith-based movement for global human rights and tells the compelling story of the personalities and forces, clashes and compromises, strategies and protests that shape it. In doing so, Hertzke shows that by bringing attention to issues like religious persecution, Sudanese atrocities, North Korean gulags, and sex trafficking, the movement is shaping American foreign policy and international relations in ways unimaginable a decade ago.

Review:

This is one book every Christian ought to read.--Charles Colson "Breakpoint Commentary "

Well researched, well written, this is a must read for those who want to understand what an American president is doing jawboning the UN on sexual trafficking.--Charles Colson, Prison Fellowship

Hertzke's book is a call to sanctified pragmatism, negotiation, and cooperation. And for those who fear the world is beyond rescue or improvement, Hertzke sounds a call to patient, persistent action.--David Neff "Christianity Today "

In this eloquent and thoughtful book, Allen Hertzke offers an enlightening survey of the new politics of human rights, and shows how religious activism has been translated into practical politics. This is a noteworthy study of how social movements work.--Philip Jenkins, Distinguished Professor of History and Religious Studies, Pennsylvania State University

...groundbreaking...--Ambassador Mark Palmer, Vice Chairman, Freedom House

In lively prose, "Freeing God's Children" details the growth of one of the most significant, and ignored, developments in recent U.S. foreign policy, the growth of a large, religion based human rights movement. The story it tells shows how religion shapes American politics in ways not envisaged by either its admirers or detractors, and how foreign policy cannot be interpreted apart from religion. Its lessons need urgently to be digested in order to accelerate the too slowly growing realization that, without understanding religion, we cannot understand international politics.--Paul Marshall "Freedom House's Center For Religious Freedom "

"Freeing God's Children" is a first-rate work of investigative scholarship, combining impeccable research, skilled reporting, a compelling narrative, and eloquent advocacy for religious freedom. It is one of those rare books likely to make a real difference in the formation of public policy.--A James Reichley "Georgetown University "

This book is one-of-a-kind, the sine qua non on the subject. Without it, the uninitiated cannot fully comprehend current human rights struggles. Freeing God's Children is a systematic chronicle of a profound and effective movement. This book is as deep as Washington politics get, and as broad as any spy thriller, taking the reader to Burma, Israel, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, Tiananmen Square, and dozens of other far-flung locales, along with one extraordinary stop in Midland, Texas. Hertzke's book is an attempt to sing an epic song. Hertzke sings it well.--Steven D. Wales, Senior Fellow of the American Freedom Center

...groundbreaking...--Ambassador Marc Palmer, vice chairman, Freedom House

Freeing God's Children is a first-rate work of investigative scholarship, combining impeccable research, skilled reporting, a compelling narrative, and eloquent advocacy for religious freedom. It is one of those rare books likely to make a real difference in the formation of public policy.--A James Reichley, Senior Fellow; Georgetown University; author of The Life of the Parties "Georgetown University "
