       Domestic violence is a widespread, though largely invisable, problem, often exacerbated by the pastoral urge to 'keep the family together' at all costs. Yet if that is not a solution, how should the church relate to batterers?

'I believe that the Christian community, if it is to be genuinely a community of healing and hope, must attend to both the victims and the perpetrators of domestic violence,' says David Livingston. Addressing the complex phenomenon of intimate violence against wives, lovers, and children, Livingston profiles batterers and battering and traces it to larger cultural pathologies. He explores the ambiguous role of religion and then offers practical advice for pastoral and programmatic efforts to embrace simultaneously the twin Christian imperatives of forgiveness and responsibility.

'This book helps to meet a desperate need. Livingston suggests a radical redefinition of reconciliation that shifts the focus from the victim to the community and sets high standards for what reconciliation might mean for all people.'
James N. Poling, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

David J. Livingston is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Mercyhurst College, Erie, Pennsylvania. In his prior work with the Nashville Coalition against Domestic Violence and since, he has counseled batters and devised and implemented these community-wide treatment programs.
