Abuse is a growing problem. It is estimated that one in four women has been the victim of domestic violence and there is a growing awareness that men are often victims too. Those who have been abused need help, and the all-sufficient Word of God provides the wisdom we need to offer comfort, practical aid, and guidance to those who are hurting. This booklet does not deal with every aspect of abuse, but discusses the biblical principles that will apply to all situations.
