Author of Battered But Not Broken: Help for Abused Wives and their Church Families and Dangerous Dating: Helping Young Women Say No To Abuse.
"Every few years a book comes along which opens the eyes of the church to a critical spiritual need in the world and the alarming gap in our theology which has closed our eyes to that need. "Setting the Captives Free" is one of those books. Just as Barna's books have done concerning the lost, just as Sider's books have done concerning poverty, so Ron's book does concerning domestic abuse. Ron opens the church's eyes to the dark world of domestic abuse victims and the gap in our theology which has kept us blind to their needs. After reading the book, I feel to my knees in repentance for not leading our church to minister to these victims. Ron gave me the tools and the theology to begin talking to our congregation about these needs."
--Dr. Chris Altrock, Minister, Highland Street Church of Christ, Memphis, TN
Author The Cross: Saved by the Shame of It All and Preaching to Pluralists
"This is a groundbreaking book that is well worth reading. It really grasps the issues of abuse and provides practical, spiritual answers to anyone who
has been impacted directly, or indirectly."
