First published in 1989, Dan Allender's The Wounded Heart has helped hundreds of thousands of people come to terms with sexual abuse in their past. Now, more than 25 years later, Allender has written a brand-new book on the subject that takes into account recent discoveries about the lasting physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual ramifications of sexual abuse.
With great compassion, Allender offers hope for victims of rape, date rape, incest, molestation, sexting, sexual bullying, unwanted advances, pornography, and more, exposing the raw wounds that are left behind and clearing the path toward wholeness and healing. Never minimizing victims' pain or offering pat spiritual answers that don't truly address the problem, he instead calls evil evil and lights the way to renewed joy.
Counselors, pastors, and friends of those who have suffered sexual harm will find in this book the deep spiritual guidance they need to effectively minister to the sexually broken around them. Victims themselves will find here a sympathetic friend to walk alongside them on the road to healing.

Dr. Allender writes such hard to hear words yet my soul is years of counseling and group work behind me. But even after confronting and forgiving my dad I still had serious problem with the "grievace self-contempt he writes about in the book. I didn't know it and in my earlier work on this the words didn't man what they meant to me this year when I was searching for a place to put the road burn I had hurt myself with. Now I am signed up and walking through the memories again. staying with it. I have many yearr
This book is a must read for any person that has suffered sexual abuse. Also for anybody who has someone in their family who has suffered sexual abuse. Lastly, this book is a must read for anybody who might know somebody who has been sexually abused! In other words this book is for anybody and everybody. It will increase your empathy, knowledge and insight intoyou, your family and our world today.
I listened to this book while taking long walks across town. The healing words were carefully spoken. My heart issues were exposed in a way that simply reading the book could not have done. Hearing the words was more effective and kind to the pain. Picking up the workbook now.
Benevolent eloquence. Dan's writing at times carries, at times leads, and at times is along side, as he informs and expands our understanding into a complex personal and social part of the human experience.

Will listen to this again and again as I journey onward toward wholeness. I'm thankful for this good book and "The Wounded Heart" also by Dr. Dan Allender
