Overview

This book was written as a practical response to many ministers who approached the author after they did not know what to say to a woman suffering violence from her abusive husband. The focus and audience is the Christian community, and the particular issues that are raised in a Christian context. Although a pastor in a congregational setting is used in most examples, the recommendations can be helpful to hospital and college chaplains, deacons, and youth chaplains as well as pastoral counselors.
