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!

Great Biblical Helpful Book:

Debilitated and Diminished: Help for Christian Women in Emotionally Abusive Marriages
Available here

"All too many Christian publications try to teach women to fix themselves when thinking they are abused, but don't deal with the fact that the woman can't act right and sit in abuse. This deals lovingly with how the woman can safely deal with her situation while receiving loving support. It also deals with church involvement in disciplining the husband, which is a necessary part. Having been through this, I wish I had received loving counsel that told me something other than suffering was good for my character and Christian development. This was just cruel. Great Biblical helpful book I wish everyone would read and preachers would preach on as so many women are hurting in this way and don't know what to do. Tha
nk you for this book." Amazon Review

"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.
