Product Description

Sexual abuse ravages the soul, causing unimaginable distress, damage, and disgrace. It is faced honestly and openly in the Bible yet we either mistrust it or ignore it, remaining in greater denial than many abuse victims themselves. Can the church truly help those who have been sexually abused?

Bob Kellemen uses the example of Amnon and Tamar to portray realistically the damages wrought by sexual abuse and the relevancy of God's Word to this difficult topic. He then takes us on a journey toward healing, helping sufferers to reclaim beauty from the ashes of abuse and to move from victim to victor.

Editorial Reviews

“The Gospel isn’t just an ethereal idea. It’s not a philosophy and it’s not static. It moves and shapes and transforms the lives of those who by God’s grace alone put their faith in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. I am grateful for ABC’s work of letting the Gospel bear it’s weight on these real life sorrows and pains.”
With biblical wisdom and pastoral sensitivity, Kelleman offers a redemptive vision and pathway in the aftermath of sexual abuse--first by exposing Satan's attempt to destroy faith, hope, peace and love through the wickedness of sexual abuse, then by showing how our Redeemer overcomes evil by his transforming grace. Sexual Abuse: Beauty for Ashes is a great resource to help the church care for one another with the compassionate and powerful realities of the gospel.
“Dr. Kellemen’s gospel insights are for both the sexually abused and the pastor. For the person who was abused, you will find a clear and caring path and you will notice that you are already on it. That will give you hope. For the pastor, the scope of sexual abuse is such that you will be preaching on it, and this booklet opens the story of Tamar in such a way that your sermon series is ready to go with a gospel-centered foundation.”
“If you have ever been a victim of sexual abuse, please read this vital booklet. You will experience so much care, so much compassion, so much Scripture, and so much of the good news of the gospel. If you are a pastor or counselor, please read it and learn how to extend that same care, compassion, Scripture, and gospel grace to others. Here is the gospel applied carefully and tenderly to real life.”
“I simply love this booklet! There are many ways Christians may respond to the horror of sexual abuse: they may minimize it, telling sufferers to just get over it; or they may exaggerate it, sending sufferers on a lifelong and futile journey of introspection. Or, they can point them to the good news that there is a Suffering Savior who loves, welcomes, completely understands, and restores victims. Bob Kellemen knows this good news and the Suffering Savior well. He also knows how to bring the brokenhearted into contact with the living Christ who loves and heals. What a wonderful help Beauty for Ashes is!”
“There is an epidemic of sexual abuse, and victims need the kind of hope and healing that only the gospel of Jesus Christ provides. Tragically, most churches and Christians are woefully unprepared to help those who have been abused sexually. In this booklet, Dr. Kellemen offers clear, accessible, gospel-based help for the many victims of sexual abuse and teaches us all how to face sexual abuse face-to-face with Christ.”
“The path for healing from damage of sexual abuse is murky and often lonely for those who walk that trail. Vistas that reveal progress made are rare. Too often, the spiritual advice and care victims receive ends up being simplistic or absent. Using an extended case study, Dr. Kellemen provides a realistic and hope-filled roadmap to guide pastors, loved ones, and victims as they explore the damage done by sexual abuse and the journey to renewed vitality. Like actual maps, this booklet may be small, but it contains depth rarely seen in Christian treatments of sexual abuse recovery.”
“This booklet will transform heaps of sackcloth and ashes into rows of beautiful garments. Bob skillfully weaves together Tamar’s ancient agony with Ashley’s modern misery to produce a tapestry of suffering and sin ready to receive the precious threads of our Savior’s sympathy, support, and salvation.”
“The booklet you hold in your hand is a wonderfully gentle blend of the grace and truth found only in Jesus Christ. Whether you are the victim of sexual abuse, or a loving friend who wants to minister God’s hope to those who have had hope stolen from them, you will find the biblical counsel here a great help and encouragement.”
