Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thorough, engaging, and relevant, this book presents clear teaching on God's attitude toward abuse and describes the necessary components for effective ministry to victims." (Kathleen Samuelson, CBA Retailers + Resources, December 2010)

"The authors of No Place for Abuse demonstrate that the problem of domestic violence in the church is more pervasive than most Christians would like to believe. Nancy Nason-Clark, a trained sociologist, and Catherine Clark Kroeger, a biblical scholar, confront the issue with both objectivity and compassion. With their no-nonsense approach, Kroeger and Nason-Clark take time at the outset to document the problem of abuse worldwide and call the Church to combat this evil no matter where it occurs. They suggest that concealment of such sin in the church does more damage than facing the truth. A major strength of the book is its practical side. The authors give practical tools to pastors and other counselors for interviewing abuse victims and perpetrators and offer alternatives victims may consider instead of continuing to endure a threatening environment. Another valuable contribution the authors make is their caution against the misrepresentation of Scripture in ways that fail to protect abuse victims. This thought-provoking book has the potential to open the eyes of many believers who don't understand the prevalence of violence in many evangelical homes. It will be particularly useful to pastors and counselors, but will offer guidance to any Christian who has encountered such situations." (Christian Retailing, May 7, 2001)

Format: Paperback
This book is a MUST HAVE. You can be free from abuse!!
If you have been looking for a book that speaks on abuse and what God says about it, look no further. This is an excellent book, a resource for every library. This book is a helpful tool for an abused woman who finds herself in an abusive relationship but feels trapped due to traditional teachings on marriage and family. What does God say about it? It will show her how clearly the Lord is vehemently opposed to abuse and what she can do about it. This book is invaluable in the hands of leaders in the church and lay people who find themselves face to face with abuse, whether it be a friend or relative or church member. You can be instrumental in ministering hope and healing for those involved in such relationships. I also recommend with five stars "The Verbal Abusive Relationship: how to recognize it and how to respond" by Patricia Evans. Another fantastic book that gives an inside window view of the day in the life of a marriage suffering with abuse and real helps for those hurting.

Format: Paperback
In this already venerated work, Catherine Clark Kroger and Nancy Nason-Clark embark on a research-supported analysis and exploration into the widespread abuse of women existing both in and out of the evangelical Christian Church.

This book is not specifically written for abused women. Instead, it is directed toward Christian pastors and laypeople willing to increase their awareness of, and provide support to, abuse victims around the world. The global prevalence of abuse and violence against females is surveyed throughout the text, along with a concluding chapter on our "global responsibility" to suffering women.

In its scope, a reader will learn 59% of female homicides occur by the hand of an intimate partner (in Zimbabwe); that 18% of women seek emergency care because of domestic violence (in Papua New Guinea); and that (in Cambodia) 50% of women report sustained injuries due to spousal abuse. In addition, the authors address female circumcision, foot-binding, dowries, and other important global issues.

A useful resource, this book provides insight into the dynamics of abuse: cycles of violence, why women remain in dangerous environments, the personal characteristics of the abusive man, etc. Useful tools for Christian counselors and pastors are specified, for instance, "Questions to Ask Yourself When Responding to an Abused Woman," and checklists such as "How Caring is My Congregation" and "Unhealthy [Church] Responses [to Abused Women]," are interspersed within the chapters.

One's heart and stomach will turn while reading these pages, endeavoring to maintain the sentiment of Philippians 4:8 "...whatever is...noble,...right,...pure,...lovely,...admirable,...excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things" while still addressing this troublesome issue.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kathi Bonham on May 21, 2007
Format: Paperback
I teach a distance learning course about family violence and this is the required reading for my course. The students are required to write a paper on this book, and usually their response includes that they can't believe that spousal abuse happens in the church.

Christians can easily hide abuse that happens within the home. We can easily put on our "Sunday face" when we're around our church family, but at home, it's a different story. If you work in any ministry within the church, I would recommend that you read this book. What I like about this book is that it also has an international focus - it's not just focused on the U.S. So, even if you're a missionary in another country, this is a good read for you too. This will help you to understand the problem and cycle of spousal abuse and how you can help those in the midst of it.

I teach on the college level on the topic of The Biblical Role of Men and Women. I found this and the other books by Catherin Clark Kroeger to be excellent! How in the world did The Prince of Peace's followers ever think that violence was approved by Jesus Christ? He never did! This book should be made available to every pastor, teenager and young engaged couple! A must read!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Luke Reynolds on August 3, 2009
Format: Paperback
This powerful book explores an often hidden component of violence against women: namely, its awareness among dominant groups. Using specific statistical data and an array of first-person narratives from abused women around the world, the book helps readers to understand the necessity of 1) realizing the extent of abuse against women that occurs in our world (across racial lines, class lines, religious lines and geographical lines, the statistics are harrowingly similar) and 2) equips readers with the tools to help be conduits for healing and wholeness by speaking up to condemn abuse within our churches and communities, and also by validating hurting women.

This book is, indeed, essential reading.

Coming from a history of domestic abuse, I was eager to devour this book. It was a tremendous discussion of what the church can do to confront the violence in the home. The scriptures were strong and helpful.

This is a very important book in both the Evangelical Christian community and the community of those dealing with general domestic violence. For Evangelicals, the book gives a little discussed but important alternative view to the classic take of living with the abuse because "God hates divorce". The book should be read by every Evangelical pastor and should be on the shelf of every church library. It gives an entirely biblically based way of addressing domestic violence that does not require the victim to suffer in silence and shame. With a paradigm based in God's love for each and every person, His passion for justice and His compassion for the suffering, this book provides a basis for communication between the Church and providers of secular domestic violence services. Thus, it should be required reading for anyone providing services to victims of domestic violence. The authors have provided the basis for effective dialog between secular service providers and the Evangelical subculture. In the area of domestic violence, being crossculturally competent is essential to effective service provision to this community. While the book was written a number of years ago and the statistics are out of date, the concepts are timeless and essential to understanding and responding to this life-threatening problem.
