Skinny-armed toddlers with wide, hungry eyes and bloated bellies watched us beneath thatched eaves, a black string around their waists and heavy mascara smeared around their eyes to fend off the demons. Their rescue and freedom were why I had come. But now that I was here, what was I, one small woman, to do in the face of overwhelming poverty and evil?

From the beautiful Himalayas to the mighty Ganges River of northern India, a soul-stealing spiritual darkness ravages the land. More than 35 million children are orphaned and destitute. Over 25,000 girls are abducted annually for sex trafficking. Dictators and loan sharks force millions into physical slavery while witch doctors and centuries old idol worship imprison even more in spiritual bondage.

God’s heart breaks for them. And in His great mercy, He called one unlikely young woman to shine His light in this dark place.

With warmth and disarming honesty, Leanna Cinquanta shares the rigors, heartaches and miraculous experiences of living hand-in-hand with God, invading the blackness and liberating His treasures. You will be amazed and encouraged at how the supernatural love of Jesus can transform not just one heart, but the hearts of a nation.

Praise for Treasures in Dark Places:

“Do you ever get tired of mundane, lifeless ‘Churchianity’ and long for the God of the Bible to burst out of man-made boxes and into action? If so, wait no longer. Leanna Cinquanta has experienced the compassion and power of God at work today and has captured some of those stunning stories in her book. Your heart will burn and your faith will be activated as she takes you on her journey of mystery and revelation, trial and triumph.”
-James W. Goll, bestselling author; founder, God Encounters

“Dr. Leanna Cinquanta is a spiritual daughter of mine, and I could not be more excited about what God is doing through her to spread the Gospel and rescue the broken in the nation of India. There are few more qualified than Leanna to write a book about treading fearlessly into the forgotten and dark places of the earth to reveal the light and hope of Jesus and pull out the gold in those trapped in a hopeless existence.

Treasures in Dark Places
is compelling, heart-wrenching and beautifully written. Leanna reminds us that the need in the earth may be great, but our God is so much greater. By reading Leanna’s call into ministry, her commissioning into the harvest field and ultimately her inspiring impact and transformative work in the nation of India, your faith will be awakened that you, too, are able to pierce darkness in the face of human tragedy–as 1 John 5:4 assures us, ‘Everyone born of God overcomes the world.'”
-Dr. Ché Ahn, founding pastor, HROCK Church, Pasadena, California; president, Harvest International Ministry; international chancellor, Wagner Leadership Institute

The Jesus Club by Brian BarcelonaThank you for your interest in reviewing The Jesus Club by Brian Barcelona. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

What happens when a former teenage atheist hears God’s call to do the impossible–and decides to act on it?

In this riveting true story, Brian Barcelona recounts how, just a few months after graduation, he responded to God’s directive and returned to his high school campus to preach the Gospel to the students. He had no training, no resources, and no experience. Just raw passion and obedience.

Suddenly lives began to be changed. Teens from every background were healed of suicidal thoughts, the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, identity crises and much more. Hearts were saved. Entire families were healed. The Jesus Club’s numbers grew, and soon other schools joined in. From one simple act of obedience, thousands of teens were, and still are, letting Jesus heal their lives.

And this is only the beginning of the story! God is moving powerfully in our nation’s high schools. And if you are willing, you, too, can be part of the revival that is transforming a generation.

Praise for The Jesus Club:

“The story of how God has used Brian Barcelona in high school campuses through One Voice Student Missions is one that has changed the lives of thousands of students across the country. I personally have seen and believe that now more than ever there is a window of opportunity that we must seize to reach the youth of this nation right where they are every day. The awakening of local churches to reach youth is happening like never before, and everyone is asking, “How do we reach the next generation?” One Voice Student Missions is wisely and strategically using the local church as a focal point to sponsor the mission field where the Good News still can be shared. While that window remains open, now is the time of salvation and discipleship! This book is one I would recommend you read—to get inspired but also to realize what is possible and that you can live out these stories in your city campuses as well. You will be moved and challenged, not to just sit back in the church seats as “consumers,” but to be moved, to go and love students unconditionally. If you’re a student, pastor or leader, I encourage everyone to see this model and book of testimonies as a way that we as the body can be unified in our vision to see Jesus lifted high for all to see!”
-Nick Vujicic, president, Life Without Limbs

“The Jesus Club will ignite within you a greater passion for Jesus and an unstoppable faith to see God move in the lives of students.”
-Banning Liebscher, founder and pastor, Jesus Culture

“This book can only be understood as a storyline straight from the pen of the Author of our faith. Read, and watch hope explode in your soul. God’s not done with America!”
-Lou Engle, co-founder, TheCall
