“I fear that many of our churches may well have unwittingly become conspirators in the domestic violence and abuse of our sisters, and our brothers. Not only have we been silent, we have silenced the victims.” Windsor Queensborough
How has the Church managed to turn itself into a place of desolation for victims of domestic violence and abuse? Using biblical stories of Joseph and Tamar this book sets out to:
1) urge the Church to remove the veil around violence and abuse, 2) encourage victims to break their silence and reassure them that they are not to blame 3) challenge perpetrators to accept responsibility for their actions and 4) address theological issues on the matter.
There is a cry rising from within the Church for the challenge of domestic violence and abuse to be tackled head on. After reading this book you will want to add your voice to the cry to see the Church become a safe place for victims. You too will want to speak out.
