“Rid of My Disgrace: Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault”

I have been reading this book on sexual assault and am about half way through it. But from what I have read so far it is a must read book for those who have been victims of sexual assault and for all Christians (especially pastors and those who counsel). It is Gospel-centered, Christ-centered, written from a Reformed perspective, well researched, gives testimonies from victims, describes the pain that they go through with genuine compassion, and is filled with hope of healing and restoration in Christ. I have learned a lot from reading it. You can order it here. (By the way, the quote from John Calvin in the post below and this one from Geerhardus Vos I got from the book.)

Also, here is some more info on the book:
