Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though this book is intended to speak primarily to adults who have suffered childhood sexual abuse, anyone who seeks to find meaning in suffering, or who grapples with the concepts of evil and holiness, will appreciate the truth and wisdom contained in this book. Issuing from a deep appreciation of and wrestling with scripture, A Conspiracy of Love can also empower preachers, educators, and pastoral care providers to hear the Word anew, from the perspective of one who has suffered much. In short, those who have been abused, their friends, and their ministers will find A Conspiracy of Love thought-provoking, inspirational, and a beacon of comfort and hope. Not that it is an easy read. At times the reflections lay bare both the horrific reality that some children endure, and the searing emotional and spiritual pain that is carried into adulthood. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, has described the writing as "heart-breaking and heart-enlarging."

Synopsis:

Read shares her amazing journey as a victim of childhood sexual abuse through a series of powerful and compelling scripture-based reflections. In doing so, she breaks the conspiracy of silence that so often surrounds and enables abuse, and replaces it with a different kind of conspiracy--"not of revenge or hate, but of love, in the gospel sense of the word, for everyone involved, including herself, her siblings, her abusers, and the church. Publication of this book has been encouraged and supported by the Seattle Faith Trust Institute and The Cleveland Child and Family Trust.of the U.K.
