Overview

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
If you’re a survivor of abuse, you know firsthand the feelings of abandonment, betrayal, exposure, and despair. What you might not realize is how fully Jesus knows them too. His abuse began with a kiss.

Here Jesus shares his personal story in response to the question, “Do you know what it’s like?” Listen as Jesus explains that he knows dread, betrayal, humiliation, and much more—feelings that abuse survivors live with and Jesus lived through and died for.

In the company of Jesus and others who have suffered as you have, take the positive steps you’ll find inside this guide to bring God’s healing power into your recovery process. Tyndale House Publishers

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Culbreth, founder of Committed to Freedom Ministries and a sexual abuse survivor, offers evangelical Christian readers an emotionally charged resource. She shares the stories of now adult men and women who were sexually, verbally and emotionally abused by their parents, teachers or church workers as children. After each true story, the details of which are maddeningly horrific, the author offers counterpart suffering that Jesus Christ endured at the hands of men. Where individuals have been rejected, shamed, humiliated and brutalized, so was Christ. Culbreth's approach is a novel one, yet readers may finish the text feeling as though much of these victims' suffering remains "unsettled business," since, as the author states, many of the victims haven't yet been able to move past the crimes committed against them as children. Culbreth does offer suggested self-reflection or group discussion questions to aid victims of abuse, and her final word on the value of locating supportive family, friends, clergy and other professional resources is helpful as well.
