Reviews - What do customers think about Violence Against Women and Children: A Christian Theological Sourcebook?

Faith-full responses  Dec 9, 2007
For women's advocates and children's advocates, and especially for compassionate members of faith communities, this book is essential reading! As more of us move toward the realization that woman abuse and child abuse are part of a larger whole, books like "Violence Against Women and Children" are both helpful and necessary.

The essays contained in the book address both domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. They boldly address the response of the faith community. I say "boldly," because the book necessarily points out how faith communities tend to hide or minimize abuse and neglect. The sad result is that abusers are given the subtle message to continue, and victims/survivors learn that their faith community is yet another unsafe place to be. The essays give abundant and helpful suggestions for how faith leaders and faith communities can better address safety for victims/survivors, hold accountable batterers and perpetrators, and create an environment of respect and mutuality. Each essay is a gem. Pick and choose, or read from cover to cover--either method unearths untold treasures.

If you are a person of faith who cares about victims/survivors of child or woman abuse, this book is for you. It provides a theological foundation for response to violence, so necessary for persons of faith who want to effect peace.
