Publisher's Description

""Why does God hate me?"" ""How can I believe in a God who has allowed my suffering?"" These are just two of the difficult spiritual questions that survivors of child sexual abuse struggle with. In addition, survivors often have mixed feelings about the church because of perceived judgment and indifference, their own shame, or their discomfort with certain aspects of worship. Of the many aftereffects of sexual abuse, spiritual wounds are the least talked about, yet they are central to adult survivors who seek to heal and find faith and meaning in their lives. With grace and gentleness, this book seeks to answer survivors' spiritual questions and address some of the common misconceptions that often develop when young victims attempt to understand what has happened to them. It explores the origins of their spiritual issues with clear psychological insights and guides survivors on a spiritual journey toward healing, wholeness, and a deeper relationship with God. ""Healing the Ravaged Soul is a helpful and informative manual for navigating the many facets of recovery from sexual abuse. The book is strengthened by weaving together spiritual and emotional dimensions that can come forth following childhood abuse. The 'Healing Practices' throughout each chapter offer practical ways to integrate information with personal experience. Although I have received individual counseling for almost two decades, I appreciated new insights and perspectives about myself as a result of reading the book. Sue offers a comprehensive and thorough examination of this difficult topic."" --Jacquie Reed, abuse survivor ""With sensitivity, compassion, and understanding, the author shines a light of hope for those who as children have suffered the worst violations of body, mind, and spirit. She is not afraid to tackle the big theological questions and does so with honesty, humility, and insight. Survivors and those who accompany them will find in these pages refreshing images and rituals for healing and the restoration of wholeness."" --Suzanne Seaton, MSW, Spiritual Director Sue Magrath is a spiritual director and licensed mental health counselor. She is an alumnus of the Upper Room Academy for Spiritual Formation's two-year program and leads retreats that address the integration of psychology and spirituality.
