Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A New Zealand-trained police officer with a calling to rescue children from the clutches of the sex trade, Walker has written about the four-year period he worked as an undercover investigator for nonprofit organizations dedicated to combatting child sex slavery. This book sheds light on a degrading and immoral criminal enterprise that is just beginning to get the world's attention. From Asia to Latin America to the United States, Walker describes operations he undertook to investigate and extricate poor children from horrific abuse and oppression. Unfortunately, Walker has chosen to change or obscure names, places, even the organizations he worked for. The result is an overly general account that will prevent readers from understanding the complexity of the issue. Walker doesn't help his case when he makes unsubstantiated sweeping claims that there are more people in slavery than at any other time in history, for example, or that Atlanta uses its economic and political might to ensure that sexual exploitation flourishes. The book's strength lies in Walker's very honest descriptions of the toll the work took on his marriage, his faith and his personal ethics. Evangelical Christians, for whom trafficking has become a hot issue, will surely appreciate it.

"I trust you are brave enough to read God in a Brothel and respond to its challenge. It opens up a world where the light of the gospel needs to be revealed in all its glory, splendor and healing power to dispel this darkness and restore the lives broken and damaged by it. May God have mercy on us if we do not respond."
Shane Claiborne
"This book plunges you full-on into a holy conspiracy, a top-secret mission of courageous love and liberation. May it inspire all of us to subvert injustice everywhere we see it."
Scott Olson
"I hope that every Christ-follower who is serious about justice issues in our world will drop whatever they are doing long enough to read this book. The evils of human slavery and the sex trade industry are graphically depicted in these pages and should call us to reorder our priorities. This rare, behind-the-scenes snapshot not only raises awareness and calls us to action but fires off a warning shot for those who will go to the front lines of this battle."
Richard Stearns
"God in a Brothel tells the heartbreaking story of the horrors and prevalence of sex trafficking throughout the world. Daniel Walker offers a candid look at the scope of the problem, including the various kinds of trafficking, as well as the means to combat it. This book is a keen reminder that we as Christians have a moral responsibility to speak out and challenge the systems that perpetuate dehumanizing slavery and to ensure that captives are set free."
Talmage Payne
"While there are many books on the hell and horror of modern trafficking, Daniel further reveals the intimate personal pain and loss of fighting this evil on the front lines. In recent years we've witnessed an encouraging surge of engagement on the centuries-old problem of slavery, but with it has come a steep learning curve. We must stop measuring ourselves against glossy stories and good intentions. Daniel calls us to a more professional approach to the rescue and recovery of slaves, as well as better care for those engaged."
Dave Haslett
"A sobering and often harrowing account of an international mission to rescue sexually exploited children in the Third World—but also a message of hope, and a reminder that there are still people out there who are willing to risk all to bring this tragedy to the attention of others. I sincerely hope that this book will make a difference."
Murray Robertson
"This inspiring book tells the painful and costly story of one man's journey into the heart of the modern slave trade, the global sexual trafficking of women and children. It not only tells of the dramatic rescue of many innocent victims but of a struggle for justice with corrupt politicians and law enforcement agencies who allow this trade to flourish for their own personal gain. We have celebrated the ending of the African slave trade two hundred years ago, but an even bigger challenge exists on our own doorstep today."
Ronald J. Sider
"Absolutely fabulous. Gripping, wrenching, this book will make you cry. Everyone should read this powerful summons to justice and amazing witness to grace."
Tony Campolo
"Sex trafficking is a hot subject these days. Speakers, films, magazine articles and books have raised the consciousness of Christian people everywhere. The problem is that few of us have ever figured out ways to respond to this ugly exploitation. In this book, we have the story of one man's journey into that strange and dirty world to do what he could to provide deliverance and hope for those who are imprisoned with despair."

    DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY!!

    complete waist of my money. It was all about the authors experiences in finding God in himself while helping local authorities track down sex trafficers. He would put himself in the position of a man in search for a "good time" to get into these brothels and get information from the slaves, who would give him "massages". I thought it would be detailed stories about the women and children who were forced into this horrific life, but instead it was all about the authors "experiences" which were extremely vague on sex trafficing and the people involved.

    God in a Brothel

    This is a very moving and poignant account of the author's efforts to combat the modern form of slavery known as sex trafficking. In addition to relaying several his mission's successes and failures, he also describes the costs sex trafficking takes on the victims, rescuers, and their families. As for me, I not only feel better infomed about this topic, but after reading the stories in this book, come away with greater sensitivity to the way Western culture constantly bombards individuals with the advertising and media that feeds the lies that (in part, along with political corrruption and systemic economic injustice) help to perpetuate such exploitation of women & children.
