Help! Someone I Love Has Been Abused
Often the victim of abuse is overcome with false guilt and fear. Her abuser tells her it is all her fault. She wonders if he is right. She may fear telling anyone else about what goes on behind closed doors in her home. And she may be in danger of serious injury or even death.
This booklet equips the reader to offer compassionate biblical counsel to the victim by giving a biblical understanding of why people act abusively. Help! Someone I Love has been Abused also gives practical instruction on how to help a victim to gain safety and to deal with the abuser in a biblical way.
Most importantly, author Jim Newheiser here shows how a victim can gain victory through Jesus Christ who was abused for His people and has compassion on hurting people who turn to Him. Abuse is a growing problem, and those who have been abused need help. You can be equipped to offer compassionate biblical counsel to a victim of abuse, as well as providing practical instruction on how to help the victim gain safety and deal with the abuser in a biblical way. Be the one who helps point to the victory possible in Jesus Christ, who was abused for his people and who has compassion on all hurting people who turn to him.
