Domestic Violence in OUR Church!
This 186-page booklet, written by Johnnie Lorren and edited by Charles Mills, explores how a destructive principle has infected and altered God’s design for life and is the root to pain, suffering and ultimately death.We’ve all seen them – the startling programs on TV highlighting stories of families torn apart by abuse. Perhaps we even know someone in our own neighborhood or family who has experienced domestic violence. Yet, it’s easy to believe that Christian homes are different — that “we” are different. Surely when people become church members, that type of abuse stops! Think again. Recent research indicates that the percentages of domestic violence among Christian intimate partners are as high and, in some categories, even a bit higher than in non-Christian homes. Just take a moment to soak in that reality — and a moment more to ask “Why?” That’s exactly what we’ll be doing in the next 13 weeks as we review not only case histories (names have been changed), but also reasons for abuse and its effect upon partners (victim and abuser) and children.
