Publisher's Description

As Howard Clinebell states in his forward, the problem of battered women is a "tragedy that has reached epic proportions in our society." Recognizing that it is pastors to whom abused women will often turn for help, and that their advice can be counterproductive, Rita-Lou Clark directs this important book to them. She provides a thorough and clear discussion of the problem and gives practical guidance for care, considering such topics as the crisis situation, couple counseling, and help for the abusers.
