MIAMI, Sept. 6, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- "There are certain events that occur in the early stages of a person's life that can have an incredible impact on them, emotionally, physiologically, spiritually and socially", according to a revolutionary new book by Kingsley Grant.
In his new book, "This Was Not Supposed To Happen", he tackles issues such as: incest, abortion, suicide, friendship, love, lust, promiscuity, forgiveness, rape and others. He uses his experience as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and years of ministry, in offering hope to victims of sexual trauma. Included within the book is a wealth of helpful suggestions to family, spiritual leaders and others in their efforts to be supportive and understanding of these victims.
Kingsley shares his own story of sexual violation in conjunction with that of Tamar and her brother Amnon, found in the Old Testament book of Second Samuel. As you read the book, you will be captivated by the plots, deceit and lies woven within the fabric of the story.
One of the things that was not supposed to happen is the way her plans turned out.
Like any helpful, loving, and caring sister, Tamar was asked by her dad to make a meal for her supposedly sick brother. This was a well thought out and rehearsed plan that he and his cousin - Jonadab, orchestrated. Everything had to work just right. He knew he only had one opportunity. Once he was able to deceive his dad to go along with the plan, he knew he was well on his way. All that had to happen was for Tamar to show up. She was about to walk into a trap that would forever change her life, as well as the lives of other family members.
