Publisher's Description

Sexual abuse knows no religious or social boundaries. The Wounded Heart is an intensely personal and specific look at this form of abuse. Dr. Allender explores the secret lament of the soul damaged by sexual abuse and lays hold of the hope buried there by the One whose unstained image we all bear. Includes information about false memory issues.

    I was sexually abused by my father. This book helped me through a very difficult time, when, I as an adult was sick of living with the mess inside of me. The author says that it will be a hard journey, but one worth taking. I finished the book and workbook (suggest you buy that, too) a few years back. It has made a world of difference!!!

    I had to write this review to encourage others who were sexually abused to PLEASE read "The Wounded Heart"-it has clarified and confirmed much of what the Holy Spirit has been revealing to me over the years. We deserve to be happy and to walk in the freedom for which Christ Jesus has set us free.-It's content is so true, it's liberating: its a recommended powerful tool for a small group Healing ministry, and for the matured & skilled counselors/Pastors to use in Pastoral Care & Counseling of those who experienced childhood sexual abuse, and ready to overcome its harmful effect in their adult life.
