Recounting her own personal story as the victim of domestic violence, this book explores how the abuse of Scripture can lead to the abuse of women, offering hope for those caught in a cycle of domestic violence and ways to overcome the devastation it leaves behind.
Ruth Tucker recounts a harrowing story of abuse at the hands of her husband, a well-educated, charming preacher no less, in hope that her story would help other women caught in a cycle of domestic violence and offer a balanced biblical approach to counter such abuse for pastors and counselors.
Weaving together her shocking story, stories of other women, and powerful stories of husbands who truly have demonstrated Christ’s love to their wives—with reflection on biblical, theological, historical, and contemporary issues surrounding domestic violence—Ruth makes a compelling case for mutuality in marriage and helps women and men become more aware of potential dangers in a doctrine of male headship.
