Victims of moral injury question their entire belief system and are often tempted to abandon belief in a kind, loving God.

Spiritual Brokenness, an adult group Bible study, works through cases of moral injury found in Scripture and early Church history to equip caregivers and strengthen the faith of victims, bringing them closer to their merciful Creator and Jesus Christ, their Savior, who suffered the greatest moral injury of all and gives us healing in this life and the next.

Geared toward those who have suffered from violent trauma - soldiers, first-responders, medical personnel, counselors, ministers, journalists, pilots, victims of domestic and sexual abuse, and others - as well as friends and family members supporting affected individuals, this study shows God's help for victims who battle depression, substance abuse, and suicidal tendencies as a result of moral injury.
