«This is a groundbreaking work in feminist theology and the intersection of theology and psychology. A. Denise Starkey challenges
the long-held idea that shame is a necessary part of the Christian tradition and its liturgical and pastoral practices. By
giving a voice to survivors of abuse, Starkey shows how the churches need to transform their ways of thinking and acting.
The Shame That Lingers is a must-read for theologians, liturgists, counselors of victims, and church leaders.» (Susan A. Ross,
