free indeed...

This is our friend, Austin. He works with an organization called Free the Slaves. He's written an article for Prism magazine that you should read:
"As I’ve watched the anti-slavery movement grow over the past few years I’ve been struck by the diversity of those committed to another world - one in which slavery is a distant and painful memory.

What did earlier movments to end slavery look like? I wondered to myself. As I began looking at the historic record I was surprised to learn that Christians played a significant role, providing extensive financing and moral entrepreneurship. For me this raised a very interesting question: what should be the role of the modern church in this final struggle to end slavery?"
