Publishers Description
Author details a childhood steeped in emotional abuse and how he found help (spiritually and psychologically) to understand the sickness of his parents and the joy of forgiveness and healing. Riveting lessons for all parents to remember. Even as a young boy, the author did not receive the encouragement he needed to feel significant, loved, and protected. Bad relationships, alcohol, anger and bitterness nearly destroyed a promising future . . . then God broke through. Told in honest, vulnerable detail- a book we can all learn from.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Bruised Child: A Story of Emotional Child Abuse and the Courage to Heal?

why was this book published?  Dec 22, 2007
words can't describe how much i despise this book. I actually threw it against the wall before it made its way to the garbage can. I read 3 pages. If you want to hear inane commentary of every single cognitive process this guy had over the course of his childhood then go for it. I doubt the author has recovered at all from his abuse and seems to desperately try to turn his tragedy (whatever it was) into something interesting. Very self indulgent. I felt as if he was dictating a psychotherapists cold analysis of himself to the reader. If you are looking for insight into the patterns and recovery of abuse, look elsewhere. Read Judith Herman's "Trauma and Recovery".
 
To all the parents...  Dec 25, 2006
When your children stop talking to you, you gotta think what you have done to them when they were young or even after they have grown up. All the physical and psychological abuse... do you realize what you have done to them? Can you dare to disagree with your parents? I think NOT. NOTHING... NOTHING... NOTHING can heal all the wounds and bruises... THERE IS ONLY HATE!

Not that depressing of a book  May 3, 2006
Usually I read books that have made me cry (as well as everyone I let borrow the books after me)
like for example, Dave Pelzer and Marcia Cameron, books like those will make you balw your eyes out when you read what horrible things they went through. However, this book quotes from the Bible a lot, so it can be spiritual. However, I thought it was going to be a book that would depress me after reading it, but it didn't. It was helpful, and the things he described that his mother and father said to him (verbal and emotional abuse as he put it) didn't seem that bad. I think that the time and era that the author grew up in is a time when people didn't know anything about the proper way to adress their families. Children just did what they were told and that was it. It didn't seem that bad. Also, this book read like a textbook in a way too because it stated what the "correct" way to talk to a child was, especially in this day and age.
It was a good book, but not what I had expected.. Still a good read. Very spiritual and Bible- oriented.
