Religion and Intimate Partner Violence: Understanding the Challenges and Proposing Solutions

Document Type

Book Review

Publication Date



This book aims to bring together 25 years of research by leading scholars on the topic of religion and intimate partner violence (IPV). The authors show that while religion often complicates IPV, it is not the cause and should be part of the solution. Although this argument has been made elsewhere, often by the same authors, the book is unique in its practical focus. Its stated aim is to assist all those working to prevent IPV and perhaps more importantly to get religious and secular stakeholders to overcome their mistrust and collaborate with each other.
