Air Date: 2015-09-21
Domestic abuse is ravaging our homes. Pastor Justin Holcomb, author of “Is It My Fault?” defines the meaning of domestic violence and shares a little about his wife’s experience growing up with an abusive father. While physical abuse is definitely a part of domestic abuse, mental, emotional, and financial abuse are just as devastating, Justin explains.
Justin Holocomb is an Episcopal priest (serving as the Canon for Vocations in the Diocese of Central Florida) and teaches theology, philosophy, and Christian thought at Gordon-Conwell-Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary. He previously taught at the University of Virginia and Emory University. Justin serves on the boards of REST (Real Escape from the Sex Trade) and GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in Christian Environments). He holds two masters degrees from Reformed Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from Emory University. Justin and his wife, Lindsey, live in Orlando, Florida, with their two daughters.
