Victim of Domestic Violence Hangs Self and Four Daughters

"Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence" is a Book That Could Save Lives

AUBURNDALE, Fla., May 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- Domestic Violence is a destroyer. It is believed that Gilberta Estrada hanged herself—after hanging her four young daughters first. A police investigation hopes to confirm the tragic facts of this case. An already confirmed fact is that Estrada was a victim of domestic violence. The Associated Press reports that she had previously obtained a restraining order against the father of one or more of her children. Can we rule out the possibility that domestic violence, or the threat of continued domestic violence, was a contributing factor to the depression Estrada was reported to be experiencing and the decision to end her life and the lives of her children?


"Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence," is a book that could save lives. The Christian woman whose spirit is being crushed and life endangered by domestic violence often deals with church sanctioned oppression through unscriptural counsel to submit to her husband regardless of the circumstances.


The well-intentioned counsel received from friends, family and spiritual leaders often ranges from disappointing at best to life threatening at worst. The battered Christian woman is faced with a unique burden and needs straight answers—not unrealistic expectations or clichéd, stereotypical platitudes.


In the book Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence, by Jocelyn Andersen, she will get straight answers, clear scriptural direction, and some tough challenges from one who has been there but is there no longer.
