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.
