AUBURNDALE, Florida, June 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Evangelical Approach to Dealing with Domestic Violence? - scripture abuse and ignoring legal recourse. It is a sad fact that many church leaders who still exercise church discipline tend to focus it more on the wives who leave violent marriages rather than on the violent husbands who are often church goers themselves.
The Christian woman whose spirit is being crushed and life endangered by domestic violence often deals with church sanctioned oppression through unscriptural counsel to submit to her husband regardless of the circumstances.
The well-intentioned counsel received from friends, family and spiritual leaders often ranges from disappointing at best to life threatening at worst. The battered Christian woman is faced with a unique burden and needs straight answers - not unrealistic expectations or clichéd, stereotypical platitudes.
In the book Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, by Jocelyn Andersen, she will get straight answers, clear scriptural direction, and some tough challenges from one who has been there but is there no longer.
Jocelyn Andersen is available for interview. Advance Review copies of Woman Submit! are available.
