Bringing Christ to Abused Women: Learning to See and Respond by Diane Langberg
About: Bringing Christ to Abused Women.
Violence against women is a growing concern, both in America and around the world. We want to help, but the problem can seem too big, too complex, too overwhelming, or too far away to tackle. Christ calls us to help the helpless, but what can we do to prevent violence and offer hope and help to women who have been abused?
Based on her many years of experience working with victims as a psychologist, Diane Langberg offers a window into what it looks like to walk with someone who has experienced trauma and abuse. Leaning heavily into Christ as the one who fully understands and redeems suffering, she will open your eyes to see both the horror of such an experience and the splendor of the gospel as it creates beauty from ashes.
