Cecile Murphey and Gary Roe have written, Not Quite Healed, to help male survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

They are survivors and they have filled this book with self-affirming truth statements and personal thoughts and opinions to support the statements.

Some of the chapter titles are:

  • “I acted out.”
  • “What good comes from grief?”
  • “How do I combat the lies?”
  • “How do I complete the circle?”  

About the Authors-

Cecil Murphey has coauthored or written more than 100 books such as, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.

Gary Roe has three adopted daughters from Columbia and has been in ministry for more than thirty years.

My thoughts-

I thought, Not Quite Healed, by Cecil Murphey and Gary Roe, was a book that both males and females should read.  We need to understand what happens and how to help.  Good books like, Not Quite Healed, will help those who have been abused and those who have not.

I was very moved when I was reading this book.  I liked how Murphey and Roe wrote the book together and were able to give their own thoughts and opinions.  The inclusion of God was so important.  God is crucial to the recovery process.

The most important part is the list of 40 self-affirming truths in the back of the book.  I firmly believe that these statements and the information in these chapters will help many people become who they truly want to be and to not believe the lies.

I highly recommend Not Quite Healed.
