Rid of My Disgrace Is a Free E-Book for 2 Days
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the Resurgence is raising awareness and supporting sexaul assault resource centers around the US in two ways.
1. A Free E-Book
1. Rid of My Disgrace: Hope and Healing for Victims of Sexual Assault is available FREE as an e-book on Amazon and the Resurgence store for the next two days (April 2–3). After that, Amazon will have it for only $3.99 through the second week of April.
One in four women and one in six men are or will be victims of sexual assault in their lifetime. But as sobering as the statistics are, they don’t begin to speak to the darkness and grief experienced by the victims. Because sexual assault causes physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual pain, victims need clear help, hope, and healing. In Rid of My Disgrace, my wife, Lindsey, and I explain how the grace of God can heal the broken and restore the disgraced.
2. Raising Funds through Crossway Impact
The Resurgence is also participating in the Crossway Impact program, which raises funds to help various ministries. This month all money raised through Crossway Impact will be used to give free copies of Rid of My Disgrace to centers working in sexual assault recovery and awareness. Through these centers copies of Rid of My Disgrace will be distributed to victims, as they need the message of hope and healing.
The disgrace that results from sexual assault has a way of grinding people down and heaping huge burdens on them. Because of it victims feel lonely, filthy, worthless, repulsive, hopeless, and unwanted. Our hope is that God will use the clear gospel message of the book to eliminate that disgrace and its effects. What victims need is for God to be strong when they are weak and to be close to the broken hearted. We want people to experience God fulfilling his promises to them. We pray that God uses the book to apply the grace from Jesus deeper than the wounds people have experienced.
