Why I Wrote
There is Nothing Like Recovering from Religious Abuse
I wrote Recovering from Religious Abuse because, until now, there has been nothing that addresses the problem, while also offering a solution for those victimized by it. Using an 11-step program, wounded Christians—those who have been used, abused, and discarded by self-righteous religious leaders—can reconnect with God in a healing, transforming way.
After being victimized, most wounded people lead half-lives, consumed with anger, bitterness, shame, and pain. They question whether the best years of their lives have already passed, hoping they haven’t but suspecting that they have. They are prone to depression and acting-out behavior, which includes over eating, over spending, alcoholism, drug addiction, pornography, promiscuity, and family dysfunction.
Recovering from Religious Abuse explains how the dynamics of religious abuse works but, more importantly, it details a method for the abused person to identify what has happened, while providing a way to achieve full recovery. The key is for the abused person to recognize that God still loves them just as much as ever and that they can once again experience love, joy, peace, patience, and serenity—not just occasionally but routinely.
If this has been your experience and you want to reconnect with God in a positive, meaningful way, you can. In a very short time—just ninety-one days—you can become stronger than you ever imagined possible, divesting yourself of the crippling chains that have imprisoned you since your abusive experience.
