"It is said that the true test of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable members."

As many as one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused during child- hood, and it's estimated that nearly half of the incidents are never reported. This means that countless millions in our societies, both children and adults, carry this complex and often hidden pain.

Drawing on his own experience and his wife's experience as survivors of child sexual abuse, minister and lecturer Tim Hein offers expertise, practical guidance, and empathy. How can we best respond when a survivor shares their secret with us? Where can survivors turn for encouragement when the road to recovery seems so long and lonely? Hein presents clinical data and resources alongside pastoral wisdom and care, addressing both psychological and spiritual aspects of sexual abuse.

Filled with sober truths and the hope of Christ, this book is a rich resource both for those who have suffered sexual abuse and those in a position to help them.
