Product Description

Is it My Fault? proclaims the gospel of healing and hope to victims who know too well the depths of destruction and the overwhelming reality of domestic violence.

At least one in every three women have been beaten, coerced into sex, or abused in their lifetime. The effects of domestic violence are physical, social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual, and can have long-lasting distressing consequences. It is common for victims of domestic violence to suffer from ongoing depression and recurring nightmares, self-harm, such as cutting, panic attacks, substance abuse, and more.

This book exists to address the abysmal issues of domestic violence using the powerful and transforming biblical message of grace and redemption. Is It My Fault? convincingly shows that the Lord is the Only One who can heal the despairing victim. It deals with this devastating problem and sin honestly and directly without hiding its prevalence today.

Editorial Reviews

Is It My Fault? is a must read for all involved in or have been involved in domestic abuse. Being yourself or someone you know, this book helps one to have a better understanding about abuse. I wish I had this book handy when I was in my first marriage. Even though that relationship has been over for over a decade now, I now see how much danger I was in. I would definitely recommend this book for all of those in an abusive relationship. Including teenagers, those in a same sex relationship, and friends and family of the abused. - Amy

    Book Review: Is It My Fault

    Is It My Fault? is an excellent read for persons suffering from domestic violence as well as those who know and support them. Justin Holcomb and Lindsey Holcomb open Is It My Fault? with an explanation of domestic violence, the traits of an abuser, and how domestic violence impacts the victim, children, and families. The Holcombs manage to present statistics, definitions, and theory in a way that is easy-to-read and understandable, while not turning victims into merely numbers or a cause.

    In the second section, the Holcombs address the theological impact of domestic violence. They use Scripture to answer common questions about Gods view of domestic violence. This section is extremely important as doctrine can be used to explain domestic violence as a deserved punishment or a trial requiring endurance. The Holcombs stress that domestic violence of any type or degree is not the fault of the victim. They also emphasize the importance of actively seeking safety and protection, while also relying on God for strength and ultimate, eternal deliverance.

    Finally, the Holcombs review several Psalms that express vivid emotion, distress, and pleas to God, feelings that those suffering domestic violence may relate to.

    After reading Is It My Fault? I wished that the book had included more answers in the concrete form of protection, safety, and ultimately escape. However, glancing at the title again, I realized anew that this book is intended to address the questions, shame, and guilt often experienced by victims of domestic violence.

    Also, Is It My Fault? includes several appendices that provide hotline phone numbers, an escape plan, and a list of recommended reading.

    Review of the technical writing of Is It My Fault? reveals several editorial mistakes. However, this is not noticeable enough to detract from the overall message of the book.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
