Abuse in the church takes different forms, but it is alive and active even in "nice" families in our churches. Typically, the abuser is male, usually a husband--and his character is that of a manipulating deceiver!
Countless women and children even many faithful pastors--have been abused by these deceivers.
Have you, or someone you know, been a victim? Has an abuser:
- Threatened physical violence if he does not get away?
- Intimidated you with abusive language?
- Denied you affection?
- Denied you medical attention?
- Manipulated friends and acquaintances in order to gain allies?
This book will come as a life-saver in a raging sea for those under the thumb of an abusive spouse of "friend".
The Lord Jesus Christ wants you to be free in him: spiritually, emotionally, and, yes, physically. Every pastor also needs to read this book, either because they too have been a victim, but, more importantly, so that they properly counsel those caught in a cycle of abuse.

In many Christian circles this may be a taboo subject spoken of in hushed tones or behind closed doors. But it is a very real problem that must be brought into the light of Scripture.

Pastor Jeff Crippen uses his over thirty years of pastoral experience to rip the lid off this most insidious behavior that is often "hidden in plain sight." He not only maintains that Bible-bel
judyCanadaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Greatly needed book for the churchesJuly 29, 2015judyCanadaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a joy to read this thorough report on abuse from a former police officer turned Evangelical pastor...how refreshing to hear a man address the sinful nature of the abuser, the deceit, manipulation and often sociopathic tendencies of abusers (male or female) and how dreadfully unfairly the churches have dealt with the victims. Even their own families are fooled by these manipulators so that the victim is doubly victimized...perhaps if the churches ever get this straight they might find people coming back...but when a woman finds her abusive husband and her parents sharing a pew and condoling about her 'backsliding' when she is cowering in fear of him and terror so much that she is afraid to go to church anymore due not only to fear but to lies, lies damnable lies that have been told about her. This is a real eye opener...reads like nail-biting suspense novel, if only it weren't true! We all need to be enlightened and start having compassion on the suffering sheep and it is high time that we recognized that the beginning of abuse is the breaking of the wedding vows...the end of the marriage, ended not by the victim but by the perpetrator!

I highly recommend it to anyone as practical tool to learn about domestic abuse. Certainly every church leader and biblical counselor should have a copy. It's gold! Buy it and read it!

Dr MarilynWindermere, FloridaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Needs to be said...July 12, 2013Dr MarilynWindermere, FloridaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book provides a theological basis for abuse victims seeking divorce although adultery was not the issue - it was the domestic violence. This enforces that breaking the covenant vows in marriage is like the Israelites breaking their covenant with God. Then God allowed 'divorce' since they broke their vows, and 'remarried', by forming the New Covenant. More churches and their pastors need to be engaged in domestic abuse solutions, and this book is a great 'how to' guide. The victim should never be further victimized by their chur h not 're ognizing' divorce. Great book, a topic which needs to be heard.
Perpetua5 Stars Out Of 5Every pastor, and church-goer should read this!April 30, 2013PerpetuaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! Evangelical Pastor Jeff Crippen has expertly addressed a very difficult and unpopular reality in the evangelical church. Abuse is occurring in Christian marriages, and Christians are suffering in silence due to shame and fear, and thinking they are caught between enduring the abuse forever or disobeying God by leaving their abusive spouse. Crippen not only outlines the tactics of abusers and how pastors and counsellors can identify them, but he shows how Scripture has been used as a weapon to perpetuate abuse in the Church. Through exegesis of relevant Scriptures Crippen demonstrates that disciplinary divorce is an option and Christians are not called to bare the cross of abuse and live in bondage for the rest of their lives. This book will bring great comfort to those who are suffering; and should open the eyes of those in church leadership who can and should do something about it. A must-read for all pastors.
