Domestic violence is a leading cause of injury and death to women worldwide. Nearly one in four women around the globe is physically or sexually abused in her lifetime, and gender violence causes more death and disability among women aged 15 to 44 than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents or war. Regrettably, the church is not immune to this problem. Numerous studies suggest that incident rates among active churchgoers are nearly the same as those among the general populace.In this thoroughly revised and updated edition, Catherine Clark Kroeger and Nancy Nason-Clark share with readers a further ten years of experience in listening to the voices of women from around the world and especially to those within the church. They help us hear their cries and find concrete ways to respond so that no home will be a place of abuse.In this immensely helpful guide you'll find true stories and updated statistics that illustrate the gravity and extent of the problem worldwide a look at what Scripture says about domestic violence, including verbal abuse and patterns of concealment, secrecy and silence a discussion of how proper concerns for Christian families can be twisted to endanger women and their children an assessment of alternatives to suffering in silence in a threatening environment new chapters on what churches can do and an introduction to the RAVE (Religion and Violence e-Learning) Project website, which provides a wide array of continually updated resources Here is a book for all who want to make a difference in women's lives.

Catherine Kroeger is adjunct professor of classical and ministry studies at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. With James Beck, she edited Women, Abuse and the Bible and Healing the Hurting, and with Mary J. Evans she edited The IVP Women's Bible Commentary and The Women's Study Bible (Oxford University Press). She is a coauthor (with Nancy Nason-Clark) of No Place for Abuse.
