Christian Counsel on Restraining Orders

   Battered Christian women are sometimes discouraged from seeking orders of protection against abusive husbands, by being told that restraining orders are of little to no value as far as protection goes.    
   But this is not true.

Listen to audio of this post here....
   While it is true, injunctions are often not helpful in the immediate midst of an attack (unless the police just happen to already be there), without a restraining order, the police will not answer a call for help until "after" the physical attack has occurred—by which time the victim may not be able to call for help at all, possibly being too severely injured or even dead.
   With a protective order in place, potential victims can call for help the moment they see the danger coming—before an attack takes place.
   This, is the life-saving value of injunction. It is protection by prevention.
   So, if you are being threatened by a violent spouse or significant other, do not listen to anyone who tries to discourage you from protecting yourself. Get that Restraining Order, now! 

Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, is for anyone experiencing domestic violence or marital abuse. It is also for those they are most likely to turn to for help—family, friends, pastors, etc.... The Christian woman whose spirit is being crushed and life possibly endangered by domestic violence is faced with a unique burden, and she needs straight answers—not unrealistic expectations or clichéd, stereotypical platitudes. In this book, she will get straight answers, clear scriptural direction, and some tough challenges from one who has been there but is there no longer.
