Rid of My Disgrace

JJ Sherwood of The Gospel Coalition blog has reviewed the book RID OF MY DISGRACE by Justin S. Holcomb & Lindsey A Holcomb which deals with sexual assault and the church's response and responsibility to the victims. Sherwood writes,
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.”

Sherwood goes on to say, RID OF MY DISGRACE:

1. [D]eals honestly and directly with sexual assault.

2. [D]isplays the prevalence of sexual assault and its effect on the victims.

3. [I]s gospel-centered and immensely practical.

4. God is glorified in every chapter.
