Product Description

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.

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?
Pastor Jeff Crippen uses his over thirty years of experience to rip the lid off this most insidious behavior that is often hidden in plain sight. He not only maintains that Bible believing churches have ignored or failed to face the problem, he insists that when they do counsel a victim of abuse, they get it all wrong! The result is that the victim gets pulled into deeper-even life threatening-danger!

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.

Author Bio

Jeff Crippen spent years as a police officer before being ordained to the gospel ministry. He has seen domestic abuse first hand. Since 2009, he has diligently studied the subject of domestic abuse—and how many times the local church has either ignored the problem, or denied its existence. He has been the pastor of Christ Reformation Church since 1993, and holds two advanced theological degrees from Multnomah Biblical Seminary.

    This topic is not well understood, especially amongst the Christian community. It is paramount to educate ourselves on types of abuse in order to support and protect the oppressed. Crippen is straight forward and brutally honest.

    What 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!

    This 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.
