When Pastors Prey
Overcoming Clergy Sexual Abuse of Women

By Valli Boobal Batchelor (editor)
World Council of Churches Publications (2013)
While clergy abuse of children has received worldwide attention, little has been written about the more widespread and devastating phenomenon of clergy abuse of adult women. This project addresses a problem that undermines the very foundations of institutional Christianity. When Pastors Prey not only brings forward the stories of many women whose trust has been abused, it also offers a helpful framework in which to understand and address the problem. 220 pp.
