Sexual abuse ravages the soul, causing unimaginable distress, damage, and disgrace. It is faced honestly and openly in the Bible—yet we either mistrust it or ignore it, remaining in greater denial than many abuse victims themselves. Can the church truly help those who have been sexually abused?
Bob Kellemen uses the example of Amnon and Tamar to portray realistically the damages wrought by sexual abuse and the relevancy of God’s Word to this difficult topic. He then takes us on a journey toward healing, helping sufferers to reclaim beauty from the ashes of abuse and to move from victim to victor.
Robert W. Kellemen, through his three pastoral ministries, seminary teaching, and RPM Ministries, has equipped hundreds of people as biblical counselors and spiritual friends. Bob is executive director of the Biblical Counseling Coalition and executive director of the Center for Church Equipping at the Association for Biblical Counselors.
