Publisher's Summary

Sexual abuse knows no religious or social boundaries. The Wounded Heart is an intensely personal and specific look at this form of abuse.

This helped me understand why I do the things I do

Any additional comments?

I appreciate how this book articulates how these people have been wounded. It helps me know that I am not alone and helps me take solace in the fact that what I thought was crazyness was not just me but others have trouble being connected fully to others and have unhealthy behaviors. Most important for me.. there is hope

Painfully Phenomenal Answer to Prayers

I have been asking the Lord to remove everything from me that is not of Him. I've been struggling with rage, contempt, and many other behaviors that I just haven't been able to shake. I praise Lord for this book! It helps me to understand the why and how to move past it all so I may walk in the abundant, loving, Christ- and others-centered life that the Lord intended for me! Fabulous book! I highly recommend it, and will definitely use it when ministering to other victims of sexual abuse.

Great book

Every time I listen to this book I hear and understand more deeply the healing process. It’s definitely Bible based and will help your faith in God grow as you soak up the knowledge.

This book was so helpful!

Loved it! Was so thankful my counselor recommended it to me. I'm going to listen again and read the print version again and get "Healing the Wounded Heart" to continue this journey of healing and discovery of my hearts condition.

Not what I was hoping for ...

Too biblical for my personal taste.... was hoping for some real tools to use and practice to help with such a delicate topic ...

Very helpful

I found this book to be very helpful in my healing journey. It is very intelligent in it's design and offers hard truths that are important to the process. The best book I've read so far concerning sexual abuse.

important book for CSA survivors

excellent and important book about childhood sexual abuse & all sexual abuse.
it goes through the types & all the side effects & how survivors see the world. it helped me understand my behavior & my tainted view of everything. I see everything through these eyes. Once you see the fusion of abuse with everything else it frees you to start separating the two. I'm finally feeling freedom for the first time!

This is the most comprehensive approach to dealing with something Hayne is happening to someone that I've ever heard of in my life but does a great job of making everything biblical and resolution

Life altering wisdom

Although not terribly religious, I am a Christian and have been moved by the authors incorporation of gods word. it is very rare to come across a therapist to do so. I winced and was horrified by some of the clarity which was sensitively and courageously written.
I will listen again.
