Responses to the Temple Tract, Falling Among Thieves. Understanding and responding to church-related abuse by Andrew Graystone.
The Temple Tract Falling Among Thieves offers a highly relevant theological reflection for all those concerned by people’s experiences of abuse and church responses. It is based on the Parable of the Good Samaritan and uses this story to shine light and hope on the gathered testimony and stories of victims and survivors, as well as on ways the church has responded and could respond. It is honest and hopeful, and a good base for further reflection and action.
