#OctTBR2022 Day 6: “On Guard” by Deepak Reju

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: A sobering guide for how churches can address and prevent child abuse within the church community.

Why I’m Reading It: There’s no question that sexual abuse is a grievous sin and a serious stain on the name of the American church, most recently within my own theological circles (Southern Baptist). This is an issue that cannot be ignored or brushed under the rug, so resources like Reju’s are vital for protecting the most vulnerable among the flock. This is going to be a hard read, but a necessary one.
