Publisher's Summary

Biblically grounded and psychologically informed, Mending the Soul is a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive approach to understanding and treating every form of abuse for pastoral and ministry staff; small group leaders and youth workers; educators and seminary students; pastoral and clinical counselors.

It’s time for the church to recognize the epidemic scale of abuse. Abuse kills. In its different forms—physical, sexual, verbal, spiritual, or neglectful—abuse deadens the emotions, slays self-worth, cripples the mind, even destroys the body.

Its victims are legion. They live in your neighborhood, play with your children, and attend your church. In the United States: one in three women will be physically assaulted by an intimate partner; around 1.5 million children are abused or neglected annually; and at least 25 percent of girls experience contact sexual abuse. But there is hope. God delights in mending shattered souls.

However, healing doesn’t come by ignoring the problem of abuse, minimizing its complexities, or downplaying its devastating impact. Healing comes by fully understanding the nature and ramifications of abuse, and by following a biblical path of restoration that allows God’s grace to touch the heart’s deep wounds.

Mending the Soul sounds the call and leads the charge. Thorough and accessible, here at last is a unique and powerful resource for understanding and healing victims of abuse.

    "Please be careful if you are the one suffering."

    This really brings it all up. It was intense when I was relating to my own abuse. My mother did not speak out for me. Now at 56, I feel paralized by the guilt of choosing not to fight. My grandson was abused and I was too afraid, for so many reasons. Now I spend my present life trying to make the past different.
    It took me a few times over a course of a week to listen to all of this book. I wonder if I should have just spared myself. I already knew what had happened and how I feel about it & after 9 years can usually get away from those memories and feelings, but of course they seep out (all the time!) in my daily behavior.
    I guess, now that I did listen to all of it, wish that I had not put myself through listening to this, but that's because it is so spot on.
    Lots & lots of Christian references, Biblical quotes etc.
