More About Addressing Domestic Violence in the Church by Bob Edwards Msw; Helga Edwards Msw
 
 
 
Overview
Women in some churches today are given false information about "submission," "headship" and "marital permanence." Abusive men take advantage of these harmful mistranslations and misinterpretations of the Bible to justify their violent and controlling behavior. In this book, the authors wish to educate abused women, churches and domestic violence services about these harmful misinterpretations of the Bible. The authors also address the following topics: codependence, identifying and responding to abuse, why men abuse, and the danger of enabling abuse to continue. It is important that church leaders not avoid the topic of domestic violence, but take a leadership role in educating their congregations about abuse, and the importance of equal, loving and respectful relationships. A victim's faith and the support of her church community can be vital to her healing process. Shelters and other domestic violence services can also be vital in providing safety, information and support. It is important that churches and domestic violence services work together, so that abused women of faith can find both freedom and hope.
