"It was my father." Those words that Dale Ingraham's soon-to-be fiance Faith spoke to him about incest at the hand of her pastor father rocked his world. But it was a world of silence at their Christian college--silence, at least, when it came to sexual abuse. Years later the silence was finally broken when that same abuser molested a girl in the church Dale himself pastored. Now Dale is determined to do his part to Tear Down This Wall of Silence, and to help readers understand the dynamics that so often keep the wall of silence in place. Riveting first-person statements and perspectives from other abuse survivors also help to tear down the wall so that those who need to understand can do so. Tear Down This Wall of Silence explores the character of the abuser, the true meaning of repentance and forgiveness, and how urgent it is for the church to open their eyes to the wounded and oppressed in their midst.
