Description

Jenn Greenberg was abused by her church-going father. Yet she is still a Christian. In this courageous, compelling book, she reflects on how God brought life and hope in the darkest of situations. Jenn shows how the gospel enables survivors to navigate issues of guilt, forgiveness, love, and value. And she challenges church leaders to protect the vulnerable among their congregations.

Her reflections offer Biblical truths and gospel hope that can help survivors of abuse as well as those who walk alongside them.

In Not Forsaken, if you have experienced abuse, you will feel understood. If you have not, you will understand better the impact that abuse has. Statistics show abuse is rampant in our world and Christian communities. This is a reminder of how much we must do to protect the innocent, and of how there is hope in Jesus for those who suffer.

Starting a domestic-abuse ministry has been a long road with a steep learning curve. This is the book I wish we would have had at the beginning.

I loved the raw honesty and boldness that Jennifer Greenberg displays through the book.

Jesvin Jose, Bookish!, July 17th 2020

Jennifer’s story is painful, yet it needs to be heard. Her story is a work of grace. God’s magnificent purpose in her pain stands out clearly through the book. She also paints a beautiful picture of the Fatherhood of God, despite the abuse by her father. She shows us that there is hope and healing for survivors of abuse.... continue reading

 

I would encourage everyone to buy this book and read it!

Alistair Chalmers, Chalmers' Blog, August 19th 2020

This book shines light on the lack of knowledge out there, it speaks of pastors saying that Jennifer was exaggerating or that she was to blame for her father’s sin. I was appalled to read of how some people treated Jennifer as she tried to reach out for help and I am so thankful that she wrote this book to give us no excuse for that to happen again!... continue reading
