The physical and mental pain of abuse—many children and adults in our churches regularly suffer that pain in their own homes! Now, Abuse in the Family, part of the Helping Others in Crisis series, shows you how to identify victims and help them toward healing. Abuse in the Family carefully deals with the problem of child abuse and neglect, incest, and wife beating.

Abuse in the Family will equip you to help victims overcome the painful scars of past or present abuse. You’ll learn how to guide victims toward emotional and spiritual wholeness and how to increase sensitivity in your church to the problem of abuse.

In Abuse in the Family, author Karen Burton Mains:

  • Acquaints you with the facts of abuse in the family.
  • Prepares you for situations you may encounter.
  • Investigates questions victims often ask.
  • Advises you of effective counseling patterns to follow.
  • Enables you to address the problem of family abuse in your church.
  • Explores Scriptural teaching and its application.
  • Informs you of significant laws.
  • Guides you to resources for further reading.

Karen Burton Mains co-hosts a nationwide radio ministry with her husband, David Mains—Director of the Chapel of the Air. Karen is also the chairperson of Women for Christ, a Chicago-area retreat ministry. She and Maxine Hancock coauthored another book on abuse, Child Sexual Abuse: A Hope for Healing.
