This book, "Hit By Friendly Fire," is a an expanded version of a sermon Milton gave on this same topic. It isn't overly lengthy (90 pages), nor is it overly detailed, but it is short, sweet, and to the point. As a side, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I thought it was too brief in some places.
The main thrust of this little book is basically how to apply the gospel to "friendly fire" - what to do when another Christian hurts you. Milton discusses these themes: take up your cross (follow Jesus through pain), take off your crown (submit to God's sovereignty), and go to your Gethsemane (face the fact that through pain, God is in control). One great part of this book was near the end where Milton encourages us to stick with the church when we're hurt, since it is in and through the church that God works.
In summary, this book isn't a detailed, step-by-step handbook on dealing with hurt caused by other Christians. But it is a readable, Christ-centered, biblical resource to begin the healing process of "friendly fire." It all has to do with God's grace shown in Christ. Highly recommended.
