OVERVIEW

Helen Thorne walks her readers through the everyday horror that domestic abuse suffers go through, and she offers specific advice and instructions as to how Christians should walk with and help these victims. Throne teaches the readers about the different kinds of abuse men and women go through when in negative domestic situations, including physical attacks, verbal abuse, neglect, detriment, starvation, and isolation. She provides personal stories of the abused and incorporates them into her lessons. This book offers insights on how Christians can recognize when individuals are being abused and then how to intervene correctly with legal help, family support, and assistance from the church. Certain signs of abuse are obvious if observers are trained how to detect them. Thorne also provides four appendices consisting of: an abuse flow chart, a sample abuse notice for churches, a prayer for the abused, and a listing helpful resources and organizations that are available to deal with abuse situations. This book is a ready source of solid information for anyone who has a heart to rescue and heal abuse victims.
