Rid of My Disgrace: Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault (Re:Lit)

Customer Reviews:

Even if sin goes deeper than you could ever imagine, God's grace goes deeper still.

By JJ Sherwood - January 30, 2011

This review first appeared at TGC Reviews [[...]], an online publication of The Gospel Coalition.

In a fallen world where unspeakable evil occurs, the church must be a place that shines the hope of the gospel into the darkness. One dark corner of our world is sexual assault. The statistics are astonishing. One in four women and one in six men have been or will be victims of sexual assault. The effects are horrific. And the world is not short of remedies: self-help, self-love, and self-heal. Unfortunately for the victims, these answers are "horrible news."

Justin Holcomb, a pastor at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington, and his wife, Lindsey Holcomb, equip the church to rise and meet the challenge of helping victims of sexual assault, not by the empty hope of self-help, but by grace, redemption, and restoration in the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.

Let me be up front with the matter. I really liked this book. Pastors should read it, and victims of... read more

Great help for victims of sexual violence.

By Carl A. Dixon - January 30, 2011

This is a well prepared book by Justin and Lindsey. The book has a multiple audience. It is definitely for those who are in a struggle to overcome the sexual improprieties of their past - but it is also an important book for those who minister to or counsel this group of people. I have been a Pastor for almost 30 years and have found this book the best, biblical based treatment of the problem. The 1st part of the book is especially helpful for those reading it who intend to be counselors of various kinds toward sexually abused men and women. We have a very active counseling ministry at our church and this book will become a guide for them to be even more helpful than they have in the past. The book also alerts those who may not know just how large an issue this is. The statistic that is most helpful is that 1 in 4 women have been raped and 1 in 6 men have been sexually abused. The authors then suggest that this is one of the most unreported crimes in the United States at... read more

Clear, helpful, and Christ-centered on a difficult issue

By Jacob Young - February 28, 2011

One if four women and one in six men (statistically) will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lives. Which means, that if there are four women and six men who read this post, 1/5 of them will have been, or will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. That's a staggering amount of people. If you're like me, you're easily left having a vague notion of the horror of this sin, baffled with a broken heart for the victims of sexual assault, and wondering, "How can Jesus help these people?!" Jesus says he comes to heal the broken, surely if anybody can be described as broken, it's the victims of sexual assault.

Justin Holcomb and Lindsey Holcomb step along side us in Rid of My Disgrace and help us see the glorious power of Christ to give hope and healing for victims of sexual assault.

I'll be honest, I read this book backwards. I know, authors have their order of chapters for a reason, but I was far more concerned with how they ended the book then how they... read more
