Forgiving the Catholic Church — One Sex Abuse Victim’s True Story of Healing through Forgiveness
This book will help heal the wounds of many victims of not only sexual abuse from the Catholic church but from all denominations.

We thank the author Bill Christman for sharing his story which will probably tell the story of many others.
