The church sometimes is woefully unprepared to deal with domestic violence and dysfunctional patterns. This book in my opinion should be read by pastors, layleaders, elders, etc. So many would benefit in congregations if leaders had more compassionate insight. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is my go to resource for hurting people in destructive patterns and destructive relationships.
I'm not denying that God can fix all things, but I didn't get that impression while starting to read this. It smacked too much of "my life's in the toilet, how can I turn the consequences of my life around when I've hit rock bottom and exhausted all my other options..... OH! "REALLY" finding God and a book deal, that's how!"
I know that sounds really cynical, but I couldn't stomach it. I just couldn't. I literally felt physically ill starting to read it, and returned it. I've never returned a book before. I'm sorry to the seller, but the idea of the author profiting from my purchase in any way felt repulsive.
Pain, hurts are difficult to understand, this is a good first step.
You will not regret reading this book.
