A Time to Heal: Protecting Children and Ministering to Sex Offenders

by The Reverend Debra W. Haffner

I am pleased to tell you that my new book, "A Time to Heal: Protecting Children and Ministering to Sex Offenders" is now available in print. The manual, adapted for Christian and Jewish congregations, includes information on child sexual abuse, how to educate adults about sexual abuse prevention, how to keep all children safe, and guidelines for involving accused, convicted, and treated sex offenders. It also includes model forms that can be adapted by congregations. (The manual was first published specifically for Unitarian Universalist publications as an online publication, Balancing Acts. The UUA graciously gave me permission to adapt it into an interfaith version that could be published by the Christian Community.)

A Time to Heal: Protecting Children and Ministering to Sex Offenders is the nation's first print resource on how faith communities can assure the safety of children and welcome persons with a history of sex offenses into adult worship.

It is available for $12 plus postage and handling from the Christian Community & LifeQuest by calling 1-800-774-3360. Discount rates for orders of 10 or more are available.

If you are interested in reviewing the publication for your organization's newsletter, please ask for a complimentary review copy when you call.

I would appreciate any help you can offer getting the word out about this publication to others.

Thank you!

PS. If you would like to receive the monthly e-newsletter of the Religious Institute, and are not yet receiving it, please email me and I will add you to the list.
