Anna Grace Marie Wood is the co-author (as Anna Wood) of A Cry for Justice: How the Evil of Domestic Abuse Hides in Your Church. Having experienced abuse in many forms and by many family members as well as by some outside of her family, she knows firsthand the many struggles of abuse victims. Like many Christian abuse survivors, she has struggled with and been hurt by the reactions of the church. It is her prayer that the church will one day take both the first and the second great commandments (Matthew 22: 34-40) as seriously as Jesus takes them.
