"A Gift to the Church" - 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.

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.
