Bridging the Gap between Awareness and Policy Development
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Carlos Richard boldly addresses a unique and controversial aspect of domestic violence, as experienced within the black church community. Drawing from his research and leadership experience, he speaks to this crisis with sensitivity and offers not just understanding and insight, but hope and practical tools for the church to lead the way forward."
--Clifford Berger, Portland Seminary of George Fox University
"Richard's doctoral dissertation . . . speaks a voice of wisdom from Jesus and the biblical text. Once you read Intimate Partner Violence in the Black Church, you will understand why this work is not only necessary for any faith community, but accurately represents the voices of those who cry out for justice, safety, and healing."
--Ron Clark, Minister and author of Freeing the Oppressed
