Prone to Wander:
A Woman’s Struggle with Sexual Sin and Addiction

Prone to Wander is a hard tale to tell. Authors Black and Harlin rise above the shame and fear of self-disclosure to heighten our sensitivity, to help us minister God's grace more effectively to those who are struggling with sexual sin.

Cracking the door so that light can shine in on one of the most hidden closets in the church (female sexuality), this clearly personal and professional work, touches hurting hearts.

Pastors, women's leaders, and those who have a heart for nurturing women will be encouraged to help the sexually broken - to heal.
