The Courage to Stand: A Spiritual Handbook for Survivors of Sexual Abuse
This practical handbook invites the reader to embark on a journey of healing by taking a guided walk through the Scriptures where they will learn to listen to their personal story narrated by a loving God. As this transforming journey unfolds, the reader will be amazed as they discover the presence of an all-loving and compassionate God who walks with them and extends a healing hand to them, empowering them to work through the effects and issues of sexual abuse. It is a practical handbook that also offers insight to spiritual and pastoral care workers accompanying survivors of sexual abuse, family and friends and other supporters.
Interwoven within the scriptural reflections is the story of the author's own journey from trauma to healing. It is a powerful and moving narrative that serves as a model for other survivors.
A practical handbook for survivors of sexual abuse and those who support them. Follows the healing journey of the author, herself a survivor, inspired and guided by the scriptures. 'One of the most important books to have been written in a time of intense scrutiny and dark and disturbing exposure for the church' (Rev Dr David Ranson, Sydney College of Divinity). 'Offers a range of specifically chosen, biblically based, powerful prayer reflections enabling survivors to tap into their spiritual selves' (Dr Jennifer Herrick, sexual abuse survivor and theological scholar). 'Child, Arise! offers hope: it lifts the shame of child sexual abuse from "victims" and presents practical encouragement for ways to access light, vitality and insight in the darkest of times, when suffering seems unending; (John Ellis, lawyer and survivor).
