The Hands That Heal curricula was developed to provide a comprehensive approach for Christian aftercare providers. It provides a foundation for further more localized and specialized training. The curricula was written by an international group of 40 writers (both academics and practitioners) and published in two forms: a community-based curriculum for training organizations and churches and an academic curriculum for use in universities, colleges, and seminaries. The community edition is available in 14 languages. I have used the curriculum in introductory seminars with organizations and churches interested in human trafficking for sexual purposes. Here in Paris, we require anyone interested in being a volunteer with #25 @Porteurs d’Espoir to complete the Hands That Heal training as part of the application and screening process. – Joni L.

In Setting the Captives Free Marion Carson sets out to answer the question, what does the Bible say about human trafficking? Aimed at Christian anti-trafficking activists and church groups, the book offers an overview of the biblical material on slavery and the sex trade. Acknowledging that there is a difference between the biblical worldview and most Christians today with regard to slavery, it suggests that we can learn much from the Abolitionists of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Following their example, it reads the biblical text through the lens of the law of love. Each chapter provides study questions and is illustrated throughout.
