Debilitated and Diminished - What Others are Saying

Debilitated and Diminished: what others are saying:
Debilitated and Diminished is a wonderfully helpful book for any biblical counselor. I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable with the term “emotional abuse” because I think it can be thrown around too easily; some women simply live with an inconsiderate and selfish husband. But does that constitute emotional abuse? And how do you counsel biblically and compassionately? Dr. Dryburgh answers these questions with a clear, solidly biblical approach. She first defines and describes what is meant by emotional abuse, what typical types of behavior are displayed by an abuser, and what the abuser is typically trying to achieve. She then recommends ways to counsel Scripturally which includes the role of the church as well as how to help the wife think and act biblically. After reading this book, I feel much better equipped to help women who are caught in an emotionally abusive marriage. Highly recommended!

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 i…

"A Gift to the Church" Debilitated and Diminished: What Others are Saying

Debilitated and Diminished..What others are saying

Dr. Dryburgh has given a gift to the body of Christ that will produce fruit beyond what she can possibly imagine. Oddly enough the author has written a book that counselor, perpetrator and victim can benefit from by crafting a position on emotional abuse that paints a picture of what normal is. My greatest challenge in caring for victims of abuse is not in identifying and describing abuse but rather in painting a picture of the future for an abused Christian woman. How does she overcome the "effects" of abuse and glorify God with her life? I will say it again, there is no other gospel-centered book out there that I know of that can address, and help, both abuser and victim.
