If only this book weren’t needed. If only men and women didn’t beat their partners. If only spouses didn’t cruelly manipulate and control. If only people didn’t bully elderly relatives . . .

Most incidents go under the radar, and it is estimated that only around a third come to the attention of the police.

This book goes right to the heart of the matter: the human heart. We see how to walk with sufferers and apply the Bible to everyday-life situations. We learn how to do ‘one anothering’ in our churches and communities.

While offering practical help, the author focuses strongly on lasting solutions that are achieved only through God’s power.

Press Reviews

'The style is engaging, vulnerable, sensitive and intelligent.' (Praise for Purity is Possible)

- Amazon

Many of us are unaware of the enormous volume of people experiencing domestic abuse globally. This book is a hugely educational and enlightening explanation of such atrocities, which, without our awareness, could be happening in our very churches and neighbourhoods. It offers sound teaching for the professional counsellor as well as the untrained, enabling us to act wisely and decisively, helping and supporting such victims.

A must for every church!

- Fiona Castle - author, speaker and widow of Roy

A powerful and accessible introduction to this disturbing subject. A necessary and thoroughly Biblical part of any pastors toolkit.

- Graham Miller, Chief Servant @windy_london

Concise yet comprehensive, empathic but empowering, practical and prayerful - this small volume with be a big help to those suffering from domestic abuse as well as those supporting them.

- Dr Trevor Stammers, Reader in Bioethics, St Mary's University and author of Love Lies Bleeding: When Intimacy turns to Abuse

Given that most of us have no idea how common domestic abuse is, nor how deeply it affects our relationships with God and other people, this book needs to be read twice, with some urgency, in every church. Read once, it will open our eyes to the scale of the problem which many in our churches are facing right now. Read a second time, it will help us make concrete plans to take actions which honour God and bring hope and help to those who suffer acutely. Our churches, and victims within them, will find the plain-speaking text and the excellent bulleted lists to be God’s wisdom.

- Dr Andrew Nicholls, Pastor of Dundonald Church and Deputy Director of Biblical Counselling UK
