By Keith W Munday

Child abuse has become a major social issue. It happens in all kinds of homes and institutions, including Christian ones. Adults still suffer from the memories of childhood abuse and it revives powerful feelings of anger, disgust and sometimes of guilt.

Since the Maria Colwell case in 1974, there have been over 40 Inquiries into Child Abuse, and the NSPCC estimates that between 150 and 200 children die each year at the hands of their parents. Others are physically or emotionally hurt.
