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.

    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.

    Wow! 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.
