The pages of Raphas Touch: Healing from Sexual Abuse, extend an invitation to enter the presence of Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, the One who mends that which is torn. The story line of Tamar, daughter of King David, whose sexual abuse at the hands of her brother is recounted in the Old Testament is interwoven with snapshots of personal memory around the themes of unstained fabric, damaged remnants, a rag rug, the patchwork quilt, and an exquisite tapestry. Each chapter offers information about sexual abuse, questions to spur thinking and remembering, prayers to direct conversations with God, tangible expressions for art and movement, resources for further exploration, and words of comfort and challenge from the Scriptures and from the voices of those who understand the healing power of God.
