Debilitated and Diminished what others are saying:

The biblical principles that Dr. Anne Dryburgh shares in "Debilitated and Diminished" are tried and true. In her book is a clear and concise breakdown of biblical principles, along with great practical applications to help women suffering under emotional abuse. Chapter 4 is also a valuable resource, as it covers the role of the church and how to come alongside and be a friend to the abused wife. Even though "Debilitated and Diminished" is full of deep and profound truth, it's an easy read. As I said... clear and concise! Whether you're in ministry, or a friend of someone suffering under emotional abuse, this book would be a great tool for your tool belt! And, even though this book is geared towards helping the emotionally abused wife; many of the principles could apply to emotional abuse occuring in different dynamics. We have requested that anyone in a leadership role, within our church read this book. It is so important to be united in our approach to helping these women and their families! I highly recommend this book!

She shares insights from multiple scholarly resources; but ultimately gives us a biblically accurate, Christ-centered approach to this difficult topic. She helps us understand the dynamic of the control behind the abuse, and then carefully gives instructions to address this dynamic.
There is no simple fix, but accurately understanding the problem and walking through it rather than sweeping it under the rug or blaming the victim is what gives hope and encouragement. For the abused, she describes the biblical resources to grow spiritually and respond biblically in the midst of these difficult circumsta…
