Clergy Sexual Abuse - How Does It Happen? Apr 18, 2000
As a victim of clergy sexual abuse, I found this book to beveryencouraging to read stories of other women who have experienced thesame thing I have, but yet so sad that this happens much more oftenthan we realize in churches. Because many churches do not accept the truth of clergy sexual abuse, this book is a good resource to help others understand about the misuse of power. The six stories, told in first person, tell of women who loved God and wanted to serve him, but yet were sexually exploited through their vulnerabilities by trusted clergy who misused their power. The preface by Marie Fortune is excellent. She has written so much truth in a few pages, as only she can because of her experience and her desire to keep telling the truth of this devastating abuse. This would be an excellent book for anyone desiring to understand how clergy sexual abuse happens. END
