Apostle Paul’s antidote to domestic violence

Through this presentation, you will learn

– why some men batter

– how the New Testament teaches an antidote to domestic violence

– how to identify a relationship that can lead to violence.

My background includes a master’s degree in theology and two traditionally published books. The first is “Hidden Voices: Biblical Women and Our Christian Heritage,” published by Smyth & Helwys and cited in three other books.

My second book, “Keeping Sabbath: Daily Life,” was published by Circle Books/John Hunt Publishing, and is part of the United Church of Christ Faith Practices series.

More than 150 of my news stories have appeared on DisciplesWorld.com. Hundreds of my articles have appeared in publications around the world.

I am available to give presentations on topics related to women in the Bible. I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Others’ comments:

“Heidi Bright spoke to the church’s Women’s Group in a very compassionate and knowledgeable way.  I was impressed with the way she was able to weave her own personal experiences into an informative and biblically based presentation.  I’d recommend her to anyone interested in knowing more about this sensitive and important topic.”

–The Rev. Chris White, Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church
