Keeping the Faith: Guidance for Christian Women Facing Abuse
by Marie Fortune (Harper San Francisco)

Fortune offers clarity, advice, and validation, along with new interpretations of scriptural texts, to assist abused Christian women to escape entrapment and draw strength from their spiritual beliefs. (I am not currently aware of similar books for women of other faiths, but you may find one, as new resources on abuse appear every day.)
