The Bible Doesn't Tell Me So: Why you don't have to submit to domestic abuse and coercive control [9780857469892]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This book is addressed directly to women experiencing domestic abuse, and to those who seek to support them, including pastoral leaders, friends and support organisations.

It debunks the myths - perpetuated by some abusers and, unwittingly, by many churches - which prevent women from getting out of harm's way. It helps them realise that the Bible does not belong to their abuser but is a text of liberation.

Written with careful attention to pastoral issues, it closely examines and clearly explains the relevant scriptural texts.

AUTHOR: Helen Paynter is Director of the Centre for the Study of Bible and Violence. A Baptist minister and biblical specialist, she has published at popular and scholarly levels, including God of Violence Yesterday, God of Love Today? (2019) for BRF. She speaks nationally and internationally about the interpretation of biblical violence and the abuse of the Bible to promote violence.
