Author(s): Natalie Collins
For over a decade, Natalie Collins has been leading workshops, raising awareness and capturing national media attention in her work against domestic abuse. After writing the Restored church pack to better provide churches and clergy with the tools to understand and better combat domestic abuse, she has repeatedly been asked at seminars for a more in-depth book on the subject. This is that book. Rooted in theological insight and thoroughly practical, this book will explore what domestic abuse is, why it is perpetrated and the impact it has on children and adults. Filled with case studies, including Natalie's own story of abuse, the book will offer a valuable insight into various abusive behavioral traits and provide some pointers as to how we can address it, both as individuals and as a church community.
