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.

    Be an overcomer. Take it to God.

    I liked the comparison that Jesus suffered and understands what victims of abuse have gone through. But what I found the best thing about this book was this. ¾ of the way through, the author talked about healing. Something she said stuck with me. A lot of Christians beat themselves up, saying, "I shouldn't have these thoughts or memories." The author said something like, "It doesn't matter if you shouldn't have these thoughts or memories. You do. And you will either take that to God or you won't."

    So do take it to God. Be an overcomer. But be discerning about what you put into your mind, including more stories of abuse. If you've lived through something like this, you might not need to read more personal stories. In fact, many stories in this book were so horrible I cried. So take caution.
