Bullying is not something confined to school children. It is a widespread form of abuse found in families, workplaces, organizations (including churches), and beyond. Confronting the Demon focuses on the nature and types of contemporary bullying and what the Christian Scriptures advise to prevent it. Bullying is a quality of most forms of violence, including racial, religious, and sex-based discrimination; sexual, physical, and psychological abuse; persecution and terrorism. This book focuses on such contemporary examples as the 2001 terrorist attacks, hate crimes around the world, sexual abuse, particularly among the churches, and cultures which promote bullying. Questions at the end of each chapter help people examine their own vulnerability to the vice of bullying and relate the context of its nature, meaning, and power to their own lives. - The book challenges us to examine our own proneness to the vice of bullying - A readable, introductory summary of the nature, meaning, and power of bullying - Focus on the types of contemporary bullying and what the Christian Scriptures advise to prevent it
