Christian Light Publications Beauty for Ashes: Biblical Help for the Sexually Abused

When Tamar was raped by her half brother, the Bible says she was left weeping and desolate. Though 3,000 years old, this story strikes a deep chord with many people, because Tamar's story is their story. Sexual abuse and its effects are a widespread, and often silent, scourge.

Victims often feel robbed, contaminated, and ashamed. They may lash out against God and have trouble getting along with others. They may not be able to forget or forgive, much less build meaningful relationships. Many suffer deeply, often alone. Is there a way out? Yes! After explaining why sexual abuse can be so devastating, Beauty for Ashes leads readers through God's Word to healing and hope. Clear, honest,and practical, this book will be appreciated by pastors, by counselors, and most especially, by those who have known the anguish of Tamar.

A good read from a Biblical perspective. The self help aspect was not as deep as I was looking for.

Beauty for Ashes is a great book that is helping me get through my situation. It asks deep questions that makes me really think about my event/situation. I especailly like how it is biblically based because I never read Tamar's story before like I have now and it means so much more to know that even way back when someone else, not just me, went through the same emotions. I am now in my healing process and I have hope that I will see God's light at the end of my dark tunnel one day. I praise His name!

The description is pretty accurate. The subject keeps coming up, and families want a way to help those injured to heal. This provides that resource for people who don't know what to say.

I thank God for this book! I can really relate to it, it has spoken to my heart like nothing else. It has drawn me closer to the Lord. This is a book that every person who has been sexually abused in any way needs to read. Every Pastor and Counselor needs to have a copy of this book!I just order a second copy of this book to give to my Pastor!
