Product Description

Although victims of domestic violence turn to their pastors more than any other resource, often clergy are not fully equipped to help. Combining real-life case studies (some with strong language), sound biblical precepts, and practical insights, social worker and pastor Miles gives ministers the information they need to provide life-affirming care to suffering families. Includes discussion questions. 208 pages, softcover from Fortress.

Publisher's Description

Domestic violence is as ancient as the family unit itself. And according to the American Medical Association, one quarter of American women will be abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. Ministers can help care for these victims. Loving and sensitive support can make a tremendous difference to survivors as they struggle with the long and difficult process of healing and regaining trust in themselves and others. Often, however, pastoral caregivers possess the same misconceptions about domestic violence as does the uninformed public. Miles addresses the issues related to inadequate pastoral response to this pervasive problem. He explores the dynamics of abusive relationships and the role which clergy members can take to heal this painful situation.
