Review

A timely work for all readers, Dr. Due s valuable new work will help both victims and perpetrators of sexual abuse or perversion move from denial to hope. --Marilyn Van Derbur, former Miss America<br /><br />Don t Say A Word About This written by Dr. Loren C. Due is destined to be a Best Seller, as he uncovers the silent killer known as sexual perversion that has eaten at our nation like ovarian cancer. It is a life changing must read. --Paula Edwards, Senior Pastor, No Limits International Ministries, GA<br /><br />This book gives hope of a healthy life to both victims and perpetrators as it sheds the light of truth on the secret sexual issues that affect us all. --Dr. Bruce Davis, Pastor, New Zion Baptist Church<br /><br />As believers we are at times called upon to CRY LOUD and SPARE NOT; Dr. Due's book does just that. His efforts to sound the alarm and to offer solutions to the ever growing problem are commendable. I highly recommend this reading to any Christian leader who desires to promote Biblical standards and practice. --Bishop David M. Copeland, Pastor, New Creation Christian Fellowship<br /><br />Don't Say a Word (About Sexual Abuse) - A Review By Laurie Weiss Every troubled relationship has at its core a problem one or both partners experienced when they were children. Truly what happens when you're a child makes an enormous difference in your ability to have a healthy relationship as an adult. One of the most troubling things that can happen to a child is a betrayal when she or he experiences sexual mistreatment by someone in a position of trust. Even more troubling is that nobody wants to talk about the problem. Many people have reported to me that, as children, they did tell somebody, somebody who should have been able to help. Instead, this trusted adult told the child to never talk about it again. And so they don't talk about it. But the problem doesn't go away, and in fact many of those people who were abused become perpetrators of inappropriate sexual behavior themselves. Dr. Loren Due's new book, Shhhh... Don't Say a Word About This! brings this problem out of the shadows. As someone who has "lived through it all," healed and committed himself to helping others heal, he brings incredible compassion to his explanations of why the problem persists and what can be done to help break the cycle that allows this abuse to continue. He does talk about it -- and in a way that is very new to me. Full disclosure: Dr. Due is black male evangelical Christian minister and I am a white female Jewish psychotherapist and student of spirituality. We come from very different cultures. We are both committed to doing what we can to end the cycle of sexual abuse but we approach the problem from very different directions. Some of the problems he addresses as sexual perversions such as homosexuality and sex outside of marriage I consider normal variations of the human experience. Dr. Due believes that healing comes only from full commitment to God. The book is liberally illustrated with biblical references and stories to help the reader understand that the human frailties that lead to these problems have been with us forever. He explains, "The stories in the Bible are not just ideas, nor are they fables. They are true accounts of real people in real life situations that closely mirror our lives in modern society." Although his approach to healing is very different than mine, it is probably very appropriate for many problems of people who are part of a Christian community. However, I think the real strength of this book, and the most important reason for recommending, it is Dr. Due's compassionate and understanding explanations of how such horrible things have been allowed to continue. --Laurie Weiss, Ph.D.

Through this understanding, both perpetrators and victims of sexual abuse can be encouraged to seek help by whatever path, psychotherapy or faith-based, is appropriate for them. If you are a victim or a perpetrator or someone who is in a relationship that's been affected in any way by sexual abuse, and especially if you are a member of a Christian community, read this book. And do start to talk about it! --Laurie Weiss, Ph.D.

About the Author

My name is Loren Due and I am a survivor/over comer of childhood sexual abuse, incest, rape and molestation. I was 4 or 5 years-old when I was raped by my teenage brother and/or my father and molested by my older sister and father. My father was an ordained Pentecostal Elder. You may ask where my mother was; she worked 2 and sometimes 3 jobs to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. My father worked odd jobs; mostly as a janitor. Other times he was off running revivals and stuff for the church. When I was 36 and my son was 12, I sat him down and shared with him the facts of life as the Holy Spirit instructed me to teach him and not touch him as I had been touched. The Lord blessed me with a 12 year-old daughter when I married my wife and I was 44. Through all this transition the Lord made it clear that I was not to touch my children; which includes my grandson and granddaughter. In my brother s family (the pastor) his oldest daughter and youngest son had sex when they were kids and some years later it is reported the patterned continued with some of my brother s grand kids (this is unconfirmed by me). The Lord has brought healing and deliverance in my life by blessing me to forgive and love my dad who is deceased, my brother who is a pastor and my sister who is almost 20 years older than I. In 2006, 60 years after I was born I got a breakthrough that Jesus loves me and that I can love him, my wife and others - I am learning to really love. My mission is to spread the good news about Jesus and expose and confront anything that holds individuals and families back from truly loving the Lord and one another.

Format: Kindle Edition
I warn anyone who considers purchasing this book. "Dr" Due has only degrees in theology from an unregistered institution. He has no training in psychology or counselling, and is not recognised as a doctor by any organisation. This book is no more than a jumbled memoir and an assorted collection of biblical quotes. It should be filed under fiction. I can only hope that this book does not further damage those who are already at risk and vulnerable.
If you have suffered from sexual abuse and/or incest, please seek help from a registered doctor or therapist, not from this crackpot.

DIfficult topics are ... well ... difficult. In Don't Say a Word About This, Loren Due has exposed the agony and pain that a sexual assault/molestation does to both the victim and, the perpetrator. He then creates a pathos on dealing with, growing through and eventually, thriving once again. Having the skill and knowledge to help people deal with negative sexual histories is limited to few. Dr. Loren Due is one of those who has the gift to do it.

'Don't Say a Word About This' blows the lid off secrets and the bondage they produce. I applaud Loren for his courage. Give it a read!
