-As my father abused me he quoted Bible verses to show how bad I was. -Each Sunday I'd go to church with my family and hear that God loved me and was watching over me. Then we'd go home and I'd get abused again and wonder why God didn't protect me from these people who went to church. --anonymous survivors This book by a psychotherapist specializing in sexual abuse confronts harsh realities. But Dr. Heggen also offers hope that confronting broken sexuality will bring healing--for survivors of abuse, for perpetrators, for the church. Heggen's book is long overdue. For Christians who are willing to stop and listen to victims, this is a valuable resource. For victims or perpetrators who have been waiting for the church to listen, this is a word of possibility. -- Marie M. Fortune, author of Is Nothing Sacred? and founder of the Faith Trust Institute, Seattle, Washington Carolyn Holderread Heggen is a Christian psychotherapist and frequent lecturer on the church and sexual abuse.
