We Too : How the Church Can Respond Redemptively to the Sexual Abuse Crisis
by Mary E. Demuth and J. D. Greear




Overview -

"Timely and necessary...This book is not only a warning. It is an opportunity. An opportunity to live out the gospel we so passionately proclaim. And it starts with listening."--J.D. Greear, President of the Southern Baptist Convention

Time's Up: Addressing the Unspoken Crisis in the Church

We like to think the church is a haven for the hurting. But what happens when it's not?

Author and advocate Mary DeMuth urges the church she loves to rise up and face the evil of sexual abuse and harassment with candor and empathy. Based on research and survivors' stories, along with fierce fidelity to Scripture, DeMuth unpacks the church's response to sexual violence and provides a healthy framework for the church to become a haven of healing instead of an institution of judgment.

In the throes of the #MeToo movement, our response as Christians is vital. God beckons us to be good Samaritans to those facing trauma and brokenness in the aftermath of abuse and provide safe spaces to heal. DeMuth advocates for a culture of honesty and listening and calls on the church to enter the places where people are hurting. In the circle of that kind of empathetic #WeToo community, the church must become what it's meant to be--a place of justice and healing for everyone.
