“The effects [of sexual abuse] cover physical, psychological, spiritual, social … I mean, every dimension of who we are.” With the unfortunate increase of relevancy that sexual abuse/assault has, it would be ridiculous to simply ignore it. So, what exactly do we mean by sexual abuse/assault? How prevalent is the issue? What does the Bible say? What’s the weight of it? And where can hope and healing be found? We ask all these questions to pastor and author Justin Holcomb. For those who’ve been well acquainted with this issue, this conversation will point you to hope. And for those who are quite unaware of it, it’s only right that you take the time to at least consider this issue.
