Summary

Healing from the emotional, physical, and mental effects of domestic abuse can be a long and difficult process. In God Provides a Way of Escape, author Dr. Gwendola Williams explores the concept of nouthetic counseling-counseling with the scriptures-to help abuse victims escape from the abuse and begin to heal from their traumatic experiences. God Provides a Way of Escape focuses on how the cry of victims can be answered and how the victim can be made whole again. It discusses how the church, as a body of believers, can nurture and emphasize counseling according to the word of God. Williams provides an introduction to the principles of nouthetic counseling and explains how Christ is the center, his Word is the handbook, and the Holy Spirit is the guide. Williams details how nouthetic counseling is just the beginning of the work the church needs to do to ensure victims feel safe and know they can do all things through Christ, including gaining victory over domestic violence.

Excerpts

Acts gives us such revelation into the power of God and what this can mean for someone in a violent situation. "And at midnight, Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them, and their bands were loosed. Trust is the foundation of all positive, healthy relationships. Trust is the glue that holds people together through life's most difficult experiences. A relationship with him was costing her so much, especially her peace of mind. Remember, we are made in God's image, and therefore are valuable and should always be respected. Take your bruises, your broken heart, your disparaged spirit, and emotional struggle all to God to be restored.
