Publisher Description

What characterizes your marriage? Marriage is a place for sacrificial giving—so a spouse who uses it to gain power and control is violating God’s design. If you are being oppressed, you are probably feeling isolated and alone . . . but you’re not alone.

Scripture has much to say about your experience, your safety, and God’s heart for you—he does not blame you for your suffering and does not tolerate oppression. In fact, he wants to rescue you.

Experienced family counselor Darby Strickland helps you to cut through confusion, speak out and find support, and then determine your next steps.

God knows the suffering and wounds of oppression, and he delights in redeeming and rescuing— especially his heartbroken children.

Excellent tool

This book is an excellent tool for someone who has experienced abuse in other forms than just physical abuse. The material is clear in defining and dissecting the different forms of abuse, while
providing scripture for reference and back up. Women who experience these forms of abuse in severe form, know scripture well in the sense of justifying and excusing the abuse, as that is typically a tactic used by the oppressor. However, they don’t know how to understand and communicate well the scripture that in fact offers freedom and hope, instead of the picture that they are doomed to endure abuse because scripture is twisted in such a way they are made to believe it somehow honors God. This booklet provides invaluable insight and perspective to help shed light in this darkness.
