Product Overview

Headlines and nightly news programs remind us constantly of the reality of crime and the victims who suffer from it. This important book is the first to make a theological exploration of the spiritual issues that victims face in the aftermath of crime and to offer practical advice for assisting those in need.

Written by teachers, theologians, and practitioners well known for their expertise in the field, God and the Victim probes and examines issues of evil, justice, victimization, and forgiveness. Working from the view that crime is primarily a spiritual issue, the authors look at examples of victimization in the Bible for guidance about how we can better minister to victims today. Readers of the book will attain a deeper understanding of what crime victims experience, insight into their practical and spiritual needs, and concrete suggestions for giving wise and sensitive help.

Including thought-provoking sidebars and study guides for personal or group use, this volume is the best available resource for readers ranging from pastors and counselors to individuals whose own lives have been impacted by crime.
