Sexual Abuse: Beauty for Ashes
About: Sexual Abuse.
Sexual abuse ravages the soul, causing unimaginable distress, damage, and disgrace. It is faced honestly and openly in the Bible—but can the church truly help those who have been sexually abused?
Bob Kellemen says yes, it can; and using the biblical story of Amnon and Tamar, he realistically portrays the damages wrought by sexual abuse and the relevancy of God’s Word to this difficult topic. He then takes us on a journey toward healing, helping sufferers to reclaim beauty from the ashes of abuse and to move from victim to victor.
The Gospel for Real Life booklet series by the Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC ) applies the timeless hope of Christ to the unique struggles of modern believers.
