In this episode of the Hope + Help Podcast, host Christine Chappell interviews Jeremy Pierre and Greg Wilson about their book, When Home Hurts: A Guide to Responding Wisely to Domestic Abuse in Your Church. Some of the questions addressed in this interview are: • What does it look like to be an "agent of God's love" when domestic abuse is disclosed? • What is domestic abuse and how can we think about it biblically? • Why can common terms associated with domestic abuse sometimes be helpful, and other times be hurtful? • After abuse is disclosed, what are some practical next steps we can take to approach the victimized spouse? • What are two "ditches" we want to avoid when seeking to engage perpetrators? • How can people-helpers wisely minister to children who are witnessing abuse in the home? • What's the difference between the terms "victim," "survivor," and "overcomer"? • How can church leaders wisely communicate with the church body about an abuse situation in their congregation?
