Item Description...
What sets this book apart from the many others on the topic is the emphasis on how a church congregation can begin to work to heal the wounds of sexual abuse and prevent further abuses from happening. Church members often must, at the same time, offer love, understanding, and healing to survivors while confronting (and still loving) the perpetrator.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beyond belief...  Oct 1, 2008
That this tome needs to exist is unthinkable in itself. To date as of October 1, 2008, 3462 priest-bishops-cardinals within the Roman Catholic Organization, (God forbid that it be called God's 'Church'), have either been convicted of, have admitted to, or been sent to prison for child molestation. Agreed, among protestant groups there have only been 29 cases in the last 30 years but the result is still the same...abuse by religious leaders and figure-heads that boggles the mind. How did we get to this point? This book does point out some of the facets and the psychology that leads leaders into these horrific crimes. Openness and accountability are key. A Christian sociology and return to gentler days of constant parental oversight of children and pastoral accountability is called for...are you hearing this out there in Roman Catholic lala land?
The unmentionable brought to light  Mar 31, 2001
This is an excellent book that brings the unmentionable subject of sexual abuse by Christians into the light of day. This book makes it abundantly clear that sexual abuse does happen, by real, committed Christians and that pretending that it doesn't, far from minimising the problem, actually allows it to prosper like a fungus growing in a damp, dark place. Many books on sexual abuse focus on helping the survivor but ignore the abuser and those friends and family that surround victim and abuser, however, Carolyn Heggen provides practical insight into help the survivor, the perpetrator and the families of both. The chapter on pastoral abuse contains very useful information and the sections that show how religious belief can actually contribute to abuse make a lot of sense. The ways in which churches can help bring healing and prevent or continue to foster abuse are made clear and there are examples of ways of worship that can help survivors. I think that much of this book (especially the chapter in repentence, restitution, forgiveness and reconciliation) would apply to not just situations of sexual abuse but any sexual sin. I can't say enough good things about this book, it is a difficult topic but it is covered thoroughly, sensitively and practically.
