TORRANCE, Calif. – “Wearing red is worldly.” “Wearing jewelry is being a Jezebel.” “A flower in your hair makes you look like a harlot.” Church leaders hold incredible power, which can easily be abused to excessively control others. Radio host and biblical counselor, June Hunt, tackles the various forms of spiritual abuse in her newest book in the Hope for the Heart series. After 30 years of counseling others through her Hope for the Heart, a program heard on more than 900 radio outlets, June Hunt exposes the yoke of legalism and points readers to the true freedom found in the Gospel.
Honest, relevant, and easy to read, June Hunt’s six new Hope for the Heart titles published by Aspire Press, an imprint of Rose Publishing, cover powerful topics, such as: Spiritual Abuse, Critical Spirit, Chronic Illness, Procrastination, Trials, and Victimization.
“After decades of counseling men and women from all walks of life, June knows how to lead readers to truth-truth that liberates because it is truth from God,” says Kay Arthur, co-founder of Precept Ministries International.
The series, which has sold more than 700,000 copies in its first two years, is packed with Bible-based advice, realistic tips, and step-by-step solutions. These handy 96-page books provide more than just testimonies; they provide help, healing, and restoration, by providing a solid overview of each topic (key definitions, characteristics, causes, signs of abuse, and more).
Hunt says she hopes to give people not just hope for a particular issue, but an overall message of hope. June encourages readers with sound advice, “Open your heart to God, and He will guide you to right living–not through rigid commands or use of power, but through the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit.”
