The Cry is a very insightful study of why abuse has gone on for so long unchecked within the Church. It helps the reader to understand why abuse has been allowed to continue, even when there was clear evidence that it was happening.
This release of the book is timely, with the Royal Commission now underway. The book is for Christians and non Christians alike and I would recommend it to anyone who is distressed by these disturbing issues.
The Cry has a lot of thought provoking material such as the psychological profile of abusers. It gives answers to our questions and hope for a safer future for our children.
Society must rid itself of this terrible cloud that blocks our confidence regarding leaders within the Church.
The author has worked in the Church in four countries. She is a graduate of London University in Arts, Education and Theology and a trained counsellor who understands the effects of abuse on victims.
She is also a consultant to clergy and chaplains in hospitals and prisons.
