Barbara Roberts has been raising awareness of domestic abuse within the evangelical church since 1999. She is a survivor of domestic abuse and a Christian who holds to the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. She has also read widely in the secular field of domestic abuse, trauma and recovery. At the blog A Cry For Justice - cryingoutforjustice.blog/faq - Barbara and others are seeking to awaken the evangelical church to the evils of domestic violence and abuse in its midst. Her book "Not Under Bondage" focuses on the doctrine of divorce for domestic abuse. IMPORTANT NOTE: Since writing "Not Under Bondage" Barbara has changed her mind about church discipline in relation to divorce for domestic abuse.
