Violence Among Us: Ministry to Families in Crisis Violence Among Us: Ministry to Families in Crisis
Authors: Brenda Branson and Paula J. Silva

$15.00 (includes Shipping & Handling)

In the Christian community, one in every four women experiences family violence. As the awareness and incidence of domestic violence increase, however, pastors find themselves ill-equipped to deal with the crisis. There is very little training, if any, provided in seminary on this subject. The challenge for every pastor and counselor is to go beyond a casual awareness of the problem to the harsh reality of this epidemic, to move past apathy to conviction, and to turn empathy into compelling action.

What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep
Author: Anita Lustrea

Anita Lustrea, Co-host and Executive Producer of Midday Connection. “Sometimes the church tries to sweep the hard stories under the carpet. Somehow we’ve gotten the impression the hard things of life shouldn’t be shared. But when you allow your stories to become known, start to interact with the stories of others and then allow God to work in and through your life, something miraculous starts to happen.”

What Would Jesus Do About Domestic Violence and Abuse Toward Christian Women What Would Jesus Do About Domestic Violence and Abuse Toward Christian Women
Author: By Dr. Chloe Cummings

The author shows that the same sins which constitute violence and abuse on the home front are the same sins which Jesus dealt with in the public arena. Because of the religious overtones in the emotional, spiritual, verbal, psychological, and other abuses which Jesus experienced, the model Jesus presents in dealing with domestic violence and abuse is especially relevant to victims who have a Christian or a strong religious background.
