Hope and Healing for Abuse Victims - My Review of Is It My Fault?

Written by: Justin S. Holcomb and Lindsey A. Holcomb
Published by: Moody Publishers

Abuse is a subject that doesn’t get talked about enough, or written about enough. It is something that affects so many, something that brings shame, and something that gets overlooked.

Is It My Fault? was written for female sufferers of abuse. It shows how God does not support abuse, and how it is not the victim’s fault in any way.

Who the book is for:

Those who have been the victims of abuse, are currently the victims of abuse, or know someone who has been abused. Or, anyone, really, to educate them on the whole subject.

What I liked:

This book was really eye-opening for me on the whole issue of abuse and how it relates to the Bible.

Not condemning at all for the one being abused.

Love one thing that this book mentioned that I had never really thought about before – staying with an abuser doesn’t help anyone. By staying with the abuser, you are basically encouraging them to sin again and again. You are not doing them any good.

Brings hope.

What I didn’t like:

One thing that I just found a bit weird, not so much that I didn’t like it… I just think the book could be a little more secretive in what the cover says and shows… in that I can’t see someone who is being abused having this in their home.

My conclusion:

Overall, this was a very good book.

I give Is It My Fault? 5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free to review from MPNewsroom. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
