Beeson and Hayward, both veteran pastors and leaders of healing and deliverance ministries, have seen firsthand the rise of the "dones" those who are just done with God thanks to emotional abuse from Spirit-less churches and messed-up leaders. In Wounded in the Church, these authors combine their years of experience to address head-on the elephant in the room: church members and church leaders hurt Christians. All the time.
The long-lasting effects-rejection, shame, despair, loneliness, fear are not just characteristic of people leaving the church, but of the still-in-church as well. With first-person accounts of hurt and loss, this book is a much-needed redemptive guide for anyone whose wounds, whether new or old, are still painful.
Leaders and laypeople both will learn how to leave unhealthy attitudes, patterns, and places, to grieve over abuse, and to hope in God's real deliverance and His continuing work through true churches that build up, not tear down. Beeson and Hayward conclude with practical advice on how to find a healthy and grounded, if imperfect, church.
