Survivors of sexual abuse face a long road to recovery. With every bump and bruise and setback, they may wonder if total healing is even possible. In fact, the feeling that ?I should be healed by now? is one that every survivor will have to deal with at some time. A survivor himself, Cecil Murphey writes, ?I absolutely affirm that God can produce such a miracle. I don?t know of any, but I still think that it is possible.? So how are survivors to overcome the challenges they are sure to face? Finding strength in community with other survivors is one key to recovery. In Not Quite Healed, two survivors join forces to share insight and encouragement on the issues that challenge them most. After a candid discussion about each issue, the authors provide a self-affirming statement that men can study, memorize, and recite on their darkest days?statements such as: ? Forgiveness is a difficult task for me, but it's a simple thing for God. ? Accountability is the first step to livability. ? God wants to heal my pain to bring healing to others. Whether men are struggling with relying on God, living behind a mask, dealing with flashbacks and recurring dreams, or learning to forgive, Cecil Murphey and Gary Roe offer hope and comfort for the ongoing journey of recovery from sexual abuse.
