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

For the abused, she describes the biblical resources to grow spiritually and respond biblically in the midst of these difficult circumsta…
