These vignettes provide authentic responses from clergy who are faced with both survivors and abusers.

"This powerful resource offers us clergy the chance to expand our knowledge on domestic violence and challenges us to examine and rethink our own views. It compels spiritual leaders to look more broadly at the ways we respond to victimized women and children, and to the men who violate them. Don't miss this unique opportunity!"
