The Christian community has been slow to address domestic violence and abuse as a sinful act. Many times the religious community has given erroneous messages, and even used Bible texts out of context to condone or ignore abuse. In some situations, religion has prevented victims as well as perpetrators from getting the assistance they need in order to eradicate abuse in their homes and communities.
No More Excuses outlines a clear theology for pastors, elders, and church leaders on how the church should respond to people in abusive situations. As you read this book you will gain a better understanding of what domestic violence does to individuals, couples, families, and the church, and learn how to help those whose relationships create this kind of suffering. No More Excuses will help you:
This book is an essential guide for everyone who wants to be prepared to assist the families in their church and community. It will help you learn more about God’s will for your life and the lives of those in the shadow of abuse.
