Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault


A substantial discussion with Justin Holcomb about the book he co-authored with his wife Lindsey, entitled Rid of My Disgrace: Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault :

You can read Carl Trueman’s review of the book here. In his conclusion Carl writes:

Finally, having been preaching through Judges for the last year, I have arrived at the truly terrifying chapter of Judges 19. This chapter is a somber reminder that the sins of the gang rapists in Sodom in Genesis finally made their way into the lives and behaviour of the very people of God. In light of this clear biblical fact, books like that by the Holcombs are to be welcomed and to be read, even though the content can only be described as at times very harrowing. They also, I hope, help those like myself, with little experience in such areas, preach with more sensitivity to a congregation where, statistically at least, these matters are almost certainly of more than mere abstract concern.
