Publisher's Description

Can we break the cycle of abuse?


Family violence has been called the hidden crime, and it seems that many battered wives are hidden behind the facade of a happy Christian family. What brings a man to the point of doing physical violence to his wife? What conflicts face Christian women who want to follow biblical commands in relating to their abusive husbands? What role can you and I play in helping couples break the tragic cycle of abuse?
