Founder Steve Tracy will be presenting a workshop at the “Honor, Shame & the Gospel Conference”

“Abuse and Shame: How the Cross Transforms Shame”


One of the most destructive effects of abuse trauma is shame. While there is a growing body of biblical literature on shame in the ancient biblical world, there is still a need to give further attention to how abuse was understood and responded to in the honor/shame culture of the ancient biblical world and to make contemporary application. Thus, in this presentation Steve will: (1) Look at how Scripture, from an honor shame cultural perspective, treats abuse trauma; (2) demonstrate that Scripture presents the cross as the antidote to shame, particularly shame engendered by abuse; and, (3) present a few case studies from our trauma ministry in east Africa to illustrate how abuse creates shame and how it can be transformed and removed.
