Using research, studies, stories, and prayer, Forgiveness and Abuse: Jewish and Christian Reflections focuses on forgiveness and reconciliation by abuse victims. Several religious authors discuss their own views and opinions as well as share the wisdom of their traditional religious teachings. With the events of recent years weighing heavily on society's shoulders, this collection is vital reading for clergy, counselors, therapists, and the abuse survivors themselves."
