Three hundred million - that's the number of people subjected to slavery, sex-trafficking, discrimination, and unspeakable poverty in India. That's the same number of people as live in the entire United States. They are the Dalit people, the untouchables.
When Matthew Cork, a California pastor, first encountered the Dalits he was shaken to his core. He learned that Gandhi's success at bringing about freedom did not extend to freeing the Dalits from the bondage of the Caste system that has oppressed them for centuries. Cork was moved to commit his church to partner with The Dalit Freedom Network to build 200 schools over ten years, a commitment of over 20 million dollars. And they are doing it. The movement has gained such momentum that a dramatic, feature-length film, Not Today (Nottodaythemovie.com) is being produced and promoted by the same group that did so for Courageous, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof.
This book tells story of the Dalit people and the rising efforts to set them free, in both soul and society. It is a story of both brokenness and hope, of oppression and freedom. It calls the reader to join in the movement to freedom and restoration. The Dalits need your help. Why not start today?
My passion is for children. So much so that I am working on obtaining my MSW so I can work in missions with orphanages through China and Africa. I have read several books about the caste system in other countries but this book brought tears to my eyes. It was wrote as a personal testimony to the way Christ works and moves in your life even when you do not know the hows or the whys.
The book reads like a movie, filled with heart breaking stories of struggle, abuse, and misfortune all while you see the author in the background working to make changes in each of their lives. He went from being a book knowledge Christian to being a walking, living example of Christ. Not just a hearer of the word, but a doer!
Matthew writes with a passion for his ministry. You feel his love for this cause come across the pages of the book and you cannot help but feel inspired and called to action. This is a book every believer should read. If you are struggling on your faith or you know God is calling you to act, but you do not know how, this book will open your eyes and show you how one man touched the lives of many by simply listening to God and acting.
