• How biblical narratives speak to the evil of sexual abuse.
• Biblical principles to compassionately engage a spouse who has experienced sexual abuse in their past.
• Practical suggestions for victimized spouses to take incremental steps toward fostering sexual intimacy with their spouse.
• How to set realistic expectations for the journey ahead.
• Biblical encouragements for both spouses to take heart and have hope that God can restore this area of their marriage relationship.
