Sexual abuse knows no religious or social boundaries. The Wounded Heart is an intensely personal and specific look at this form of abuse. Dr. Allender explores the secret lament of the soul damaged by sexual abuse and lays hold of the hope buried there by the one whose unstained image we all bear. Includes information about false memory issues.

Although not terribly religious, I am a Christian and have been moved by the authors incorporation of gods word. it is very rare to come across a therapist to do so. I winced and was horrified by some of the clarity which was sensitively and courageously written.
I will listen again.
"excellent source for both the abused & helpers"
Allender is one who understands abuse and the path to heath both intellectually and experientially. very balanced and helpful.
"Painfully Phenomenal Answer to Prayers"
I have been asking the Lord to remove everything from me that is not of Him. I've been struggling with rage, contempt, and many other behaviors that I just haven't been able to shake. I praise Lord for this book! It helps me to understand the why and how to move past it all so I may walk in the abundant, loving, Christ- and others-centered life that the Lord intended for me! Fabulous book! I highly recommend it, and will definitely use it when ministering to other victims of sexual abuse.
"This helped me understand why I do the things I do"
I appreciate how this book articulates how these people have been wounded. It helps me know that I am not alone and helps me take solace in the fact that what I thought was crazyness was not just me but others have trouble being connected fully to others and have unhealthy behaviors. Most important for me.. there is hope
"This book was so helpful!"
Loved it! Was so thankful my counselor recommended it to me. I'm going to listen again and read the print version again and get "Healing the Wounded Heart" to continue this journey of healing and discovery of my hearts condition.
"Great! it helped me to see Me"
I was amazed at how this book helped me to identify myself. i found myself all thtough this book. it allowed me to put into words the way i new i saw myself. i nrw i was a good girl , a tuff girl and a party girl. it was comforting to know that i could be all 3 . i loved the spiritual basis
o will be listening several more times.
"I feel duped."
No, the blurb said nothing about this book being religous in nature. I would not have wasted my money/credit had I know this first.
No, because he is religious I choose to seek books based on science, not mythology.
Anger and disappointment. The fact that it is based on Christianity should be listed more clearly.
I wish I could get my credit back.
