Product Description

Ivie thought he was going halfway around the world to make a movie---what he didn't realize was that God had ulterior motives! This behind-the-scenes story chronicles the impact that Pastor Lee's compassion had on South Korean babies and on Ivie, a film director who went from living as a spiritual orphan to becoming a son of God. 240 pages, softcover from Cook.

Publisher's Description

Brian Ivie was filled with compassion as he read an LA Times article about Pastor Lee’s solution to unwanted newborns in South Korea—a baby drop box. Brian traveled halfway around the world to film the documentary The Drop Box. But God had even bigger plans. For in the midst of filming the plight of these abandoned and forgotten children, Brian realized his own spiritual brokenness.

At its heart, this is a story of spiritual orphans—young and old—discovering their true identity as children of God.

    I was really disappointed. The actual story of the Pastor saving the Korean babies is amazing and well worth reading about and so full of blessing but felt there was too much told about the author and I kept waiting to read more about the work in Korea. I was hoping to pass this book on the younger readers - but didn't feel it was suitable.

    I enjoyed the book but was a bit disappointed that there was not more information about Pastor Lee and the orphanage. Perhaps in another book. But Brian Ivie's story is worth reading as it gives a lot of insight into the changes God brought forth in his life.

    Can you imagine an actual box lined with blankets outside a home with a bell that alerts the inhabitants of the addition of a baby? An actual live infant? Such a thing actually does exist for a home in South Korea. The drop box provides a safe place for people to place unwanted, deformed babies. Pastor Lee and his wife provides a home and love for these babies. Brian Ivie was a young, ambitious film student in Southern California who read the story of the drop box and saw it as a possible way to stardom for himself. He was sure that filming a documentary about this incredible place would win a major award for him. So he raised the money through donations and he went to South Korea.

    But he got more than he expected. He found God in every aspect of the filming and the drop box and in especially in Pastor Lee. Brian thought he was a Christian before he made the trip but he learned that he had been faking it through and what he found was salvation and love. He found love that knows no end. Love that does not see outward beauty but sees to the soul of humans instead. He found God.

    This was an incredible story and an incredible book. I wish I could see pictures of the orphanage and the infants though. Brian talks about making the film and I had wanted to see the movie and that is what motivated me to read this book. I still want to see the movie. The book is an easy read. I read it from start to finish in one sitting without stopping. Readers will likely also find this book fascinating. It is a true story of God's love and how one young man came to find it.

    I rate this book 4 stars and highly recommend it to readers.

    I received a pdf version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
