Abstract:

Domestic violence is a leading cause of injury and death to women worldwide. One in five women around the globe is physically or sexually abused in her lifetime, and gender violence causes more death and disability among women aged 15 to 44 than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents or war. Regrettably, the church is not immune to this problem; some studies suggest that incident rates of domestic violence among active churchgoers are not much lower than those among the general populace. Representing the International Task Force on Abuse, formed under the auspices of the Women's Commission of the World Evangelical Fellowship, Catherine Clark Kroeger and Nancy Nason-Clark have listened to the voices of women from around the world and especially to those within the church. Now they help us hear their cries and find concrete ways to respond so that no home will be a place of abuse. In this immensely helpful guide you'll find: true stories and statistics that illustrate the gravity and extent of the domestic violence; a look at what Scripture says about domestic violence, including verbal abuse and patterns of concealment, secrecy and silence; a discussion of how proper concerns for Christian families can be twisted to endanger women and their children; an assessment of alternatives to suffering in silence in a threatening environment; practical tools for pastors and other counselors for interviewing abuse victims and perpetrators; outlines for sermons, Bible studies and youth group activities that address the problem of domestic violence.
