The Wounded Heart: Hope For Adult Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Dan Allender

The Wounded Heart: Hope For Adult Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Dan Allender

$20.99

Paperback
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.

Confronting
5 stars By Kate, Nov 13 2013
This book is directly aimed at childhood victims, however I would strongly recommend this to any sexual abuse victims. Further more, it is a worth while book for anyone willing to be challenged,as it deals with more broader topics such as shame and contempt. Overall, a very insightful and hope-bringing book.
