Publishers Description Is there another subject that tears at the heart of the family and consequently the church, more than sexual abuse? This ?secret sin? is evident throughout our society, regardless of social strata, educational background, economic opportunities, or religious commitments. No family is exempt, including the pastor's; on-going reports of sexual misconduct by clergy reveal the moral quagmire that threatens the church and society of today. Now churches, as never before, need to be trained in recognizing the symptoms, the sickness, and the solutions. Is there hope for the victims of sexual abuse? For the perpetrators? Ask this pastor of thirty years whose life experiences, biblical foundations and training as a counselor impacts the lives of families everyday. The church is facing an epidemic of sexually related issues that we cannot ignore any longer. Left unattended, the wounds of sexual abuse fester, take root, and have generational consequences.
