And according to the American Medical Association, one quarter of American women will be abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. Ministers can help care for these victims. Loving and sensitive support can make a tremendous difference to survivors as they struggle with the long and difficult process of healing and regaining trust in themselves and others. Often, however, pastoral caregivers possess the same misconceptions about domestic violence as does the uninformed public. Miles addresses the issues related to inadequate pastoral response to this pervasive problem. He explores the dynamics of abusive relationships and the role which clergy members can take to heal this painful situation.

    Mike Kilcrease

    This is a must read for every person in ministry. We cannot ignore the problem of domestic violence and we cannot be caught unprepared to help those affected by it. This book is a great resource to get some basic understanding of the issues and can help define an approach to domestic violence in the church.

    Written for a much more conservative denominational setting then my own, but still a lot of great stuff here.
