Dan Allender has unraveled the very heart of sexual abuse, both in diagnosis and scriptural resolution. This is the first book on sexual abuse that gives the victim God's path to healing: a costly path of fresh suffering that leads to a life characterized by love. -- Dr. Pamela Reeve, Multnomah School of the Bible
Dr. Allender acts as a true surgeon of the soul in making a diagnosis which, while compassionate, is never sentimental. He brings the wounded survivor of abuse to the Great Physician for healing. I welcome this book: a next step for those who have begun the healing process, and a place to start for others. -- Maxine Hancock, author of Child Sexual Abuse
These powerful pages bring the realities of damaging human experience into the perspective of a loving God. With professional skill and spiritual insight from the crucible of experience, Dr. Allender blends a keen understanding of the dynamics of sexual abuse with the practical application of Christian truth. An excellent and timely book! -- John Powell, Ph.D., professor, Counseling Center, Michigan State University
