In this comprehensive, practical, and gripping assessment of various forms of violence against women, Pamela Cooper-White challenges the Christian churches to examine their own responses to the cry of Tamar in our time. She describes specific forms of such violence and outlines appropriate pastoral responses.

The second edition of this groundbreaking work is thoroughly updated and examines not only where the church has made progress since 1995 but also where women remain at unchanged or even greater risk of violence.

"Pamela Cooper-White's, The Cry of Tamar in 1995 quickly became a standard text on gender justice in the U.S. churches. In spite of significant increases in local and global social activism to end violence against women, the epidemic continues, supported by a backlash of religious patriarchal forces. This revised edition is required reading for all pastors and laity concerned about gender equity in the churches." - James Newton Poling Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

"The Cry of Tamar encourages the church to step forward with courage to address the serious issue of violence against women. It is theological and practical, inviting pastoral leaders and congregations to utilize the healing forces of faith and community towards both survivors and perpetrators of violence." - Bishop Teresa E. Snorton Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, Fifth District
