Survivors will be encouraged to know, when reading this book, that they are not alone and that they can emerge victorious from the shame and pain they are suffering with, as Beth has. A very hopeful and real book...and another quick read.

- Sex in the Forbidden Zone
by Peter Rutter, MD
Technically this is not a book directed solely at Clergy Sexual Abuse (CSA) but is directed to all abuses of power (teachers, therapists, employers, etc). Among other reasons, this book is a must read for all survivors because it outlines the abuser's grooming methods step-by-step. Not only will this dissection of abuser's methods help survivors see exactly how they were set up to fall prey, but it is likely to leave them stunned that these methods are not uncommon or even unique to their situations and there is healing in this awareness.
