“I crawled through the den and down the long hall to the bedroom. The children were screaming and crying. My head was swimming; I was bleeding, and slowly losing consciousness. I didn’t want my children to see this and I didn’t want any outsiders in my home. How in the world do you explain a violent, cruel, and abusive husband, father, and pastor?”
Marilyn Joyce: nurse, author, speaker, columnist, certified domestic violence counselor tells the shocking story of her dramatic escape from her marriage to an abusive pastor. But most importantly, in this book, she shares the spiritual journey that helped her find the answer to the most important question: 'Where were you, God?' This question is addressed in a way that gives insight, hope, and life changing direction to religious victims of domestic/intimate partner violence. For more than 20 years, 'If He Doesn't Deliver' has been used by churches, shelters, prisons, schools, therapists and civic groups as a scriptural, faith-based resource addressing intimate partner abuse in a way that helps hurting, spiritual people survive, get a life and do their destiny.
