March 31, 2024

Here is a link to the study committee report on domestic abuse and violence chaired by Tim LeCroy. It provides some excellent recommendations and resources. Diane Langberg and Rachael Denhollendar both served on the the study committee with Tim. 

Diane has just released another book related to abuse, When the Church Harms God’s People.  She continues to build on her earlier work (2015), Suffering and the Heart of God: How Trauma Destroys and Christ Restores

A couple of other important books on this theme:
