I was actually fearful of reading this one but decided to plunge in anyway and am very glad I did! There's a no-nonsense feeling to Vernick's words that make you feel you're in the room with her, confiding and getting excellent advice.

Rather than a "you don't deserve the abuse and that's that" approach, she turns the focus on us -- using Biblical citations and discussion -- to help understand the how/what/why in our own hearts as well as that of others. There is a strength that comes from realizing you can only control YOU and that, in the end, it's up to you what you allow to continue or not.

This book applies to all relationships -- marital/partner, employer, friend -- and is applied from the inside out!

I purchased this book for a friend and decided I should read it first. Having purchased quite a few books on this topic, I found this one to be the most down to earth, relative one I have read. I found it most helpful MYSELF in knowing how to relate to my friend and cease being a caregiver myself. Leslie, thank you for this book, and I thank God for it as well. I can tell that He inspired it's simplicity and clear cut direction...

I cannot say enough good about this well written, clear thinking, biblically sound book about the devastating effects of unhealthy relationships. I have heard this author present her material at the American Association of Christian counselors conference. She speaks with authority, compassion, and grace. She gives clear direction for identifying abuse and standing up against its hurtful, damaging effects. I am so grateful to finally have a biblically based, boundary honoring way to address the pervasive, persistent pattern of crazymaking that is the life of abuse victims and perpetrators. She addresses the challenge for the church people who can get sucked into the vortex of confusion. she helps people clarify what strategies will likely work and which strategies only perpetuate the patterns of destruction. Above all she desires to lead people to honor Christ in their journey and to not bow their knee to fear or intimidation or manipulation, hallmarks of abusive strategies. If you or someone you love is suffering from the powerless, helpless, confusing mind warping of an emotionally destructive relationship, this book will offer hope and strategies for surviving and thriving.
