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.
