Thirty years ago, with great courage and vision, Dan Allender brought Christians to the table to acknowledge, understand, and help victims heal from their experience of the evil of sexual abuse. His work continues to help victims and those who love them to honestly acknowledge their abuse, understand the unique challenge of repentance for victims of abuse, and learn to love boldly in defiance of their trauma. Ultimately Dan offers the bold assurance to sexual abuse victims that even they can find their way to joy and hope in the comforting embrace of a good God.
The Wounded Heart has sold over 400,000 copies and has been the first book family, friends, counselors, pastors, and victims have turned to in search of Christian answers to the calamity of sexual abuse. With a new introduction reflecting on the ongoing importance of the book, and a companion workbook for personal and group recovery, The Wounded Heart continues to offer an urgently needed word of grace in a world ravaged by sexual abuse.
Dan taught in the Biblical Counseling Department of Grace Theological Seminary for seven years (19831989). From 19891997 Dan worked as professor in the Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling program at Colorado Christian University, Denver, Colorado. Currently, Dan serves as Professor of Counseling Psychology and President at Mars Hill Graduate School (MHGS.edu) in Seattle, Washington.
He travels and speaks extensively to present his unique perspective on sexual abuse recovery, love and forgiveness, worship, and other related topics. He is the author of The Wounded Heart (NavPress), and has coauthored four books with Dr. Tremper Longman III, Intimate Allies (Tyndale), The Cry of the Soul (NavPress), Bold Love (NavPress), and Breaking the Idols of Your Heart (IVP). Dan and his wife, Rebecca, have three children and live in Seattle, Washington.
mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Very Disturbing yet Eye-Opening Look into the Reality of Sexual AbuseFebruary 13, 2016mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Wounded Heart is a very disturbing yet eye-opening look into the reality of sexual abuse. This is indeed a much needed resource for the church today. There is arguably no more shame-laden and guilt-inducing issue than sexual abuse. It is a constant companion that threatens (and brutally succeeds) to hinder all personal, social, and spiritual growth in the abused individual. Having never had any personal experience with sexual abuse but having three precious daughters, Dr. Allender presented a compelling case for every parent and youth worker to be alert to the dangers and reality of sexual abuse. His approach was unique and different from secular counselors in that it is incredibly Christ-centered. The root cause of sexual abuse is the sinful nature of human beings. The real enemy is not the perpetrator, but the forces of evil behind them. This is not to diminish the heinous and despicable acts sexual abusers have committed, but rather to emphasize that no one is beyond Gods redemption. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God says the Apostle Paul, and this includes both victim and perpetrator alike. Dr. Allender explains with sensitivity the uncompromising truth that God is the One who ultimately heals the wounded heart in both the victim and perpetrator. A note on narration, the narrator was very easy to listen to and not distracting in any way. I received this audiobook for free as part of a reviewing program from christianaudio and was not obligated to write a positive review. For more information, visit www.christianaudio.com.
Cares5 Stars Out Of 5Extremely helpful.January 18, 2015CaresQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I found this book to be exceptionally valuable in my lifelong journey of healing. I am almost half finished reading the book and completing the workbook together. I highly recommend getting and working both together. This book is deep and profound. I have wept and prayed over answering the questions he asks. This book has prompted me to do more honest soul searching than I ever have before in my life. It is not by any means an easy or simple book to work through. I strongly advise seeing a qualified Christian counselor along with this set, especially if you are just starting your journey of healing your wounded heart. I have read many books on this subject and have gone through a few years of counseling, and yet this book has opened my eyes to so see more than ever that Christ is the absolute healer of the wounded heart. I believe if you honestly let this author speak to you, through this book, and the Word of God, along with the support of your counselor, it can and will bring true and lasting healing to your heart. It will not be necessarily easy, but it will be worth it. This author gives compassionate, challenging Scriptural counsel...I hope this book helps you as much as it has helped me!! I would recommend it to a friend, if they were also seeing a counselor.
Katie5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome eye opening bookSeptember 7, 2014KatieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book has been a tool for a group of woman learning that our behavior is not abnormal; we had developed ways of behaving because of the abuse we have all been through. The book has helped us become more self aware and accepting of the person God created us to be. Highly recommended!
survivor5 Stars Out Of 5The Wounded Heart book and workbookAugust 28, 2014survivorThis is a excellent source of help for me. I purchased the workbook as well. I suggest for you to do the same. I had been looking for a biblical perspective and found it in this book. PLEASE work through this book with your councilor if need be as I am doing. Or at least show your councilor the book to let him/her know that you are reading it. It will help your process!
This book helped me realize that the wounds of my childhood sexual abuse had not all been worked through like I thought. I realized also that most of us (survivors) need to work with a professional councilor, one that specializes in trauma.
This book helped validate many areas I had been struggling with for years. I recommend both the workbook and book.
