Hope and Help for Victims of Domestic Abuse
by Sydney Millage
Oppressed, hurting women are looking for comfort and relief. Pastors and church leaders want to help. Individuals are concerned. What prevents our churches from effectively helping women abused by their husbands? The missing piece is an understanding of domestic abuse and how to apply the good news of Jesus, His Word, and character to what has remained unseen, unknown, and misunderstood. Churches and pastors follow Christ by protecting the weak and oppressed. Be a place of hope and healing. Women experiencing domestic abuse, choose to follow Jesus. He knows, hears, and will meet you in your need. Sanctuary provides practical descriptions, help, and hope for women who are suffering and those who long to help.
“Domestic abuse may be the most misunderstood and mismanaged issue within the church today. Sydney Millage seeks to remedy that reality with a work that is theologically sound, highly practical, and counseling room tested.” – Chris Moles, Pastor of Grace Community Chapel in Eleanor, WV, Certified Counselor with the Assoc. of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC), author of The Heart of Domestic Abuse
