EFFINGHAM, Ill., Oct. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Hope of Survivors is pleased to announce the release of a new documentary DVD. Call It Anything But Love! is a true story of a couple's struggles and challenges as they overcome their painful pasts to find themselves in a spider's web of lies, deceit, adultery and abuse -- at the hands of their pastor.
"I was deeply touched by the video...," says one victim from Hawaii. "So many like us will be able to connect and relate. My heart ached deeply with yours in hearing the darkest and most painful periods of your life when you were faced with so much doubt and feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness."
Clergy sexual abuse is not new, though it is becoming more and more prevalent in the news as of late. This documentary is for victims who are searching for hope and answers, as well as for the populace at large who wish to gain a greater understanding of the issue or simply be inspired by a heartwarming testimony.
"It's an uplifting story of overcoming abuse and learning how to trust God and draw from His strength," remarks another victim from Illinois. "It makes you realize that God is bigger than any situation we have to endure."
The DVD retails for $15 and is available at The Hope of Survivors website at: www.thehopeofsurvivors.com/products.asp
