This book is absolutely necessary reading for any seminarian, minister, professor, or congregational leader. This project goes a long way toward helping ministers navigate the difficult subjects of domestic and sexual violence in their congregations. This book includes model sermons which address Biblical texts related to sexual violence. It is also helpful for thinking about the congregation's responsibility to men and women who are survivor-victims or perpetrators.
