"Sexual assault is an invasive event of traumatic evil. You were victimized, and now you are suffering." Whenever sexual abuse occurs, love is not part of the equation. Rather, the perpetrator uses power, domination, and control to injure innocent victims.
David Powlison gently leads those who have been wounded sexually to a deeper relationship with God--beyond the pain--with biblical action steps. By embracing their identity in Jesus, sufferers will not only understand the emotional and spiritual battles they face as sexual assault victims, they will be equipped to effectively overcome any fear, worry, anger, and shame and to offer hope to others in similar situations.
