    Abstract

    Drawing on South African Contextual Bible Study and narrative therapy praxis, this thesis develops a biblical hermeneutic of abuse, applied to four Hebrew Bible texts in which abuse occurs. The methodological objective is to liberate, transform and re-empower those who have been abused within and by Australian religious institutions.
