The Christian community has been slow to address domestic violence and abuse as a sinful act. Many times the religious community has given erroneous messages, and even used Bible texts out of context to condone or ignore abuse. In some situations, religion has prevented victims as well as perpetrators from getting the assistance they need in order to eradicate abuse in their homes and communities.

No More Excuses outlines a clear theology for pastors, elders, and church leaders on how the church should respond to people in abusive situations. As you read this book you will gain a better understanding of what domestic violence does to individuals, couples, families, and the church, and learn how to help those whose relationships create this kind of suffering.

No More Excuses will help you:

  • Learn about the social dynamics and foundational elements that perpetuate domestic violence and abuse in Christian homes and religious institutions.
  • Explore the interpretation of texts used out of context to justify abuse.
  • Find information to help in assisting individuals as well as leaders respond appropriately and effectively to victims and perpetrators.
  • Discover resources that can help the religious community minimize and eradicate domestic violence and abuse in homes, churches, schools, and communities.

This book is an essential guide for everyone who wants to be prepared to assist the families in their church and community. It will help you learn more about God’s will for your life and the lives of those in the shadow of abuse.
