Why are spouse and child abuse so frighteningly common in the church? According to the findings of this book's contributors, the main reason stems from misuse and misunderstanding of the Bible's teachings on headship and submission. Based on a Christians for Biblical Equality conference, Women, Abuse, and the Bible shows that many abusers see no conflict between their behavior and their Christian beliefs. Some abusers even justify their behavior by citing biblical passages and religious principles. With input from counselors, biblical scholars, an abuser, and survivors, this eye-opening book will: --Compel Christians to recognize the existence of domestic violence. --Offer practical and creative pathways to healing. --Challenge churches to honestly address the issues of domestic, verbal, and clergy abuse, emotional cruelty, sexual harassment, and rape. This book speaks frankly of the way that the Bible can be used to hurt or to heal, to disperse God's grace or to obstruct it. It serves as a source book for all Christians courageous enough to address the problem.
