About this guide:
Whether you have experienced sexual violence or know someone who has, a common question to ask is: Where was God? Sojourners’ Catherine Woodiwiss provides three extraordinary essays about women, sexual violence, and the silence or welcome they received from their church. I Believe You will draw you into a topic too often pushed underground as Woodiwiss interviews survivors, pastors, and supporters of victims of violence and ultimately emerges with an answer to that question in the body of Christ. This Sojourners compilation also provides questions, prayers, and further reading for the individual or group.
