Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Tough topic, thoughtfully approached"

    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.

    "Clear, Informative, Instructive, Compassionate."

    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.

    Story
    "Just not feeling this book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the person who wrote the book didn't act like your not a victim. That every one goes through this some way or another and justifying I. His own words what sexual abuse is which is. I just didn't agree with him.


    Has Healing the Wounded Heart turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did and ok job. But the voice didn't sound kind and worm. It was straight forward like a professor,Teacher of some kind


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Healing the Wounded Heart?

    Where he said every woman sustains some form of sexual abuse in there life time. That it's just today's times with all the internet and cell phones we have today

    "It's unmerited favor that has kept me alive/happy."

    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 necessary continuation of the Wounded Heart. Amazing how Allender is able to know and explain the dynamics of CSA.
