No time to be silent & a giveaway

The Lord has been urging me, by His Spirit to speak up for those things that hurt His heart.  After reading Priceless - A Novel on the Edge of the World by Tom Davis I know beyond knowing that the Lord grieves over the trafficking of both children and adults in the sex trade.

In my review posted December 1st I wrote:
Do not begin reading this book if you do not want to be forever changed. You will be moved to weep, to pray and to speak out for the rights of those who have been unable to speak for themselves.
But now I do want you to read this book, and Children's Hope Chest wants you to read this book, because God needs your hearts to be moved.  I have been given a copy of this compelling novel to give away to one of my readers.

First, visit the website She Is Priceless to learn more about the book and find the answers to the following questions:

  1. How many children are trafficked every year?
  2. Every ______ minutes a child is being prepared for sexual exploitation?
  3. How many times each day is the average victim forced to have sex?
  4. What is the average age of a trafficked victim?

Next , leave your answers in a comment to be entered.  Be sure to leave an email so I can contact you if you win.  A winner will be randomly chosen on January 15th from entries with the correct answers.

Lastly, but most important, please pray for the end of human trafficking now.

Not sure I would love to read the book. But I think maybe I should read the book. :)

I can't participate because I read the comments earlier and would be cheating.

I am interested in reading the book, though.
