Kingdom Work: Redeeming Child Sexual Abuse

464 pages6 hours


Child sexual abuse is widespread with increasingly recognized medical, psychological, social, and spiritual damage. And while revelations of sexual abuse continue, newspapers and other media do not capture the extent, distribution, or aftermath of childhood sexual abuse that many medical professionals experience with patients. Kingdom Work: Redeeming Child Sexual Abuse shares the perspective of a physician who offers a worldview rooted in biblical Christianity and faith. Prompted by a single patient experience, author David R. Haburchak, MD, has produced a comprehensive, interdisciplinary primer on the broad subject of child sexual abuse with the primary aim of informing and energizing the universal church and others to engage healing and prevention of this heinous sin. The author develops a holistic and theological approach to the problem showing through literary and historical metaphors that child sexual abuse is ultimately a sin against the triune God.
