Dawn Jewell weaves the stories of individual victims with the grim realities that propelled them into prostitution in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Alongside she highlights ministries that are reaching one life at a time through prayerful visits to strip clubs, bars and seedy streets. Readers will glimpse the Gospel's transforming power in individuals who have left prostitution and found new life in Christ. This piece of front-line research considers how women and children are forced or ensnared; the nature of the sex trade; options for escape; helping the wounded; finding viable economic alternatives; how redeemed prostitutes are working to rescue those still trapped; prevention and the role of governments.
