Someone you know has been sexually abused
You may think you don't know anyone who has been sexually abused, especially if most of your friends and acquaintances are Christians. But the statistics indicate otherwise: sexual abuse knows no religious or social boundaries. A recent study indicated that 38% of the women interviewed had been sexually abused by an adult or family member by the age of 18.
The Wounded Heart (Second Edition) is an intensely personal and specific look at this most "soul deadening" form of abuse. It's personal because it may be affecting you, your spouse, a close friend or neighbor, or someone you know well at church, and it's specific because it goes well beyond the general issues and solutions discussed in other books.
Dr. Allender's book reaches deep into the wounded heart of someone you know, exploring the secret lament of the soul damaged by sexual abuse and laying hold of the hope buried there by the One whose unstained image we all bear.
How can your faith become real and vibrant in the midst of everyday life? This rich discussion guide for women will help you find your faith growing stronger again--even in the midst of discouragement.
