9780692533222: Unholy Charade: Unmasking the Domestic Abuser in the Church

Could it be that the one who is smiling at you as he hands you the offering plate is abusing his wife at home?What if your Sunday school teacher, who knows so much about the Bible, is abusing his family behind closed doors?  Is it possible that one of the elders or even the pastor of your church is practicing an unholy charade? If the spouse of one of these abusers were to come to you for help, would you even be able to recognize the signs? How will you understand the dynamics of this deceiving evil?  

Pastor and author Jeff Crippen presents Christ's body with a work steeped in Scripture that lays before us a map of the abusive mind, the tactics of abuse, the effects abuse has on its victims, and the tragic way our churches have failed the victims of this sin. He issues a clarion call for those who love Christ to answer the call to love the oppressed and speak for the victims, as Proverbs 31:9 says: "Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy."  

Together we can root out the wolves in the midst of the flock and unmask the domestic abuser in the church hiding in our pews.
