Child Sexual Abuse and the Churches: Understanding the Issues explains the seriousness of child sexual abuse and gives valuable advice on how church leaders and others in their congregations should respond.
The book draws on the research on child sexual abuse, talks about controversies such as repressed memory and ritual abuse, and deals with the effects of sexual abuse on victims, the struggle of faith they experience and the very difficult issue of forgiveness.
The book concludes with discussions on ministers who sin in this area, disclosure, the legal process and making churches safer for children.
