When A Man You Love Was Abused by Cec Murphey

When a Man You Love Was Abused: A Woman's Guide to Helping Him Overcome Childhood Sexual Molestation When a Man You Love Was Abused: A Woman's Guide to Helping Him Overcome Childhood Sexual Molestation by Cecil Murphey

Just to let everyone know, I'm still reading this book but felt it was so important that I wanted to get some information out there to bring awareness for the courage it takes to acknowledge abuse no matter who you are. Please take note. If you don't need it, someone you know will.


Angie's Take:
Cec's vulnerability will help women begin to understand why the men they love act in numbness, hiding their emotions under a wall so thick they no longer are aware of their existence. What seems like neglectful uncaring is actually the inability to even find emotions long ago buried. Though there are very practical and helpful suggestions for women, loving a man who has been abused takes the help of Christ and Cec does not fail to acknowledge that important piece of the puzzle. Great opportunity to strengthen marriages and save many from destruction.
