Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


It is likely that you already are confident in your conviction that domestic abuse is both heinously wicked and all too common. Yet how confident are you in your ability to see the signs of domestic abuse or in your ability to help those who are victims of that abuse?

 In Is It Abuse, author Darby A. Strickland walks you through the process of understanding and defining abuse in its various forms, uncovering the abuse, and upholding the victims of such abuse. At each step, you will learn to see abuse both through the eyes of the victim and, just as importantly, through the eyes of the God, who despises that abuse and whose desire is for justice for the abuser and healing for the victim.

 While this work cannot provide an exhaustive understanding of the intricate process of counseling and caring for the abused, readers will find in it an essential starting point that will help them “expose and drive out sin while protecting the vulnerable” (p. 305).
