Lifelines

Culture, Spirituality, and Family Violence

Survivors of spousal abuse inevitably fail to find answers in the realm of reason as they try to make sense of their pain and suffering. Focussing on the healing power of spirituality, Lifelines offers a celebration of healing, a message of hope, and a way of helping. Lifelines addresses family violence and spirituality in a community and cultural context. It is a collection of knowledge, experiences, and impressions of people who have discovered that the process of healing depends on one's spirituality and inner strength.

Reviews
