War veterans, first responders, victims of domestic abuse, and those ravaged by natural disasters experience spiritual brokenness, commonly referred to as moral injury. Their concept of who God is and how His world should work has been shattered by sin and by the devastation that sin has brought on God’s creation and into people’s lives.

Spiritual injury must be talked about by Christians who strive to care for and support their neighbors. This is where the Church can shine. We can share with others the spiritual healing that Jesus gives.

This 12-week Bible study offers comfort to those experiencing moral injury and prepares others to provide spiritual care for those suffering from the aftereffects of violence on the human spirit.

“For many, human moral injury remains a mystery. Kristin Vargas tip-toes into the mystery bringing sound medical research, solid biblical insight and practical suggestions with clarity, hope and healing. Finally, a splendid resource for readers and churches!”
—Chaplain Don Muchow, Former Chief of Navy Chaplains

This book addresses "moral injury" which is spiritual brokenness and conflict brought on by trauma. Deftly navigating the waters of psychology and theology, this book provides the reader with a ready made resource to frame the challenges of those suffering from moral injury in a biblical way. This small study does not lack for practical tips and guidance that are rooted in the love and revelation of Jesus Christ our Lord.
