Janet Heimlich’s new book Breaking Their Will: Shedding Light on Religious Child Maltreatment:

“In this revealing, disturbing, and thoroughly researched book, Ms. Heimlich takes an in-depth look at the many forms of child maltreatment that manifest themselves in religious contexts, including biblically-prescribed corporal punishment; beliefs about the necessity of “breaking the wills” of children; terrorizing children with scary religious messages; sexual abuse perpetrated by religious authorities; and religiously-motivated medical neglect. After speaking with dozens of victims, perpetrators, and experts, and reviewing a myriad of court cases and studies, Ms. Heimlich also explains how religious child maltreatment happens.”
