What's a congressman from Virginia doing in places where bullets fly and babies starve? Thirty years ago, Frank Wolf was elected to the U.S. Congress to address local transportation issues. Fueled by a faith that made him believe he could do something about it, the congressman grew to champion human and religious rights around the world - from cracking down on gang-related crimes in the U.S. to relieving suffering from war, AIDS, and famine in places like Darfur, China, and Bosnia. Eventually, he became a key proponent of opposing radical Jihadists and creating a National Committee on Terrorism.
As Wolf visited some of the most dangerous places in the world, he saw firsthand the need for members of Congress to speak out for persecuted people around the globe. In Prisoner of Conscience, he shares intimate stories of his adventures from the halls of political power to other dangerous places around the world, what he has learned along the way, and what you can do about it now.

This book is heavily biased in three ways: First, the book's primary message is that the author is a wonderful guy, and he wants everyone to know that. Second, Republican presidents are good guys, and Democratic presidents are bad guys. Third, with enough Christian faith and prayer, good things happen. If this is what you want, then this book is for you. Unfortunately, some very interesting and useful information gets lost because of the author's intent to write a book about himself and his own importance. No doubt, the Congressman has done much good work, but I didn't enjoy being hit over the head with it.
Well read, well written, and inspiring. Not to mention a challenging story of a congressman with a conscience.
