"Wounded in the Name of God details the psychological and spiritual struggles that many individuals incur because of acts said and done in the name of God. The author uses his personal experiences of growing up in a world of fundamentalist religion and later becoming a "true believer" himself to illustrate how years of indoctrination created deep wounds and left scars for life. He then chronicles the long, tedious process of recovery and self discovery as he begins healing the wounds. The author writes first from a personal perspective and then adds a professional view as a licensed psychotherapist working with others emerging from similar experiences. A timely book given the recent tragic events committed in the name of God. Wounded in the Name of God is for anyone who has ever questioned their beliefs and assumptions about religion or faith."
