I am excited to announce the release of my new book Help, My Wife is a Survivor of Sexual Abuse: Answers to Your Most Important Questions. You will find it on Amazon beginning Monday, September 23, in both paperback and Kindle versions.
It is my prayer that the information, insights, and recommendations in this book will lead to transformed lives and marriages of husbands and survivors.
“I’ve wanted this book for a long time.”

On September 23, Dr. Daniel Green’s wish will come true with the release of the book Help, My Wife is a Survivor of Sexual Abuse: Answers to Your Most Important Questions by Dr. Bill Ronzheimer.
This book, written to husbands of childhood sexual abuse survivors, answers 10 recurring questions, asked by husbands of survivors, that have been identified through doctoral research, ministry to husbands, and personal experience.
New Perspectives and Patterns for Husbands
The author, writing as if he is chatting with you over coffee, answers each question in turn during the 10 corresponding chapters:
- What is a normal marriage?
- When do I get my wife back?
- Should I stay or should I go?
- Why doesn’t God heal my wife?
- When will this be over?
- Why can’t she just get over it?
- What do I do with my anger towards her perpetrator?
- Our sexual relationship is in trouble! What should I do?
- Why is it so difficult to communicate with my wife?
- Why does she seem to change at the flip of a switch?
Bill guides the reader through each chapter by exploring new perspectives and establishing new patterns for personal development and for responding to their spouse. The perspectives and patterns are based on research, years of interaction with husbands of survivors, and a blend of clinical accuracy, personal experience, and distinctly Christian perspective. Dr. Green goes on to say,
“Bill makes himself available as that guide. He’s been there. He knows the confusion and pain. He’s walked the walk. He’s lived what he’s written. More than that, he’s been on this journey for decades and has seen what this is about, both what is helpful and what is not.”
A note to wives:
Though the book addresses husbands of survivors, wives who are survivors of abuse will note that they too wrestle with most of the same questions. For this reason, survivors will glean new insights from this book. Noelle S. Wiersma, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Whitworth University, speaks of this book as “accessible, honest, and grace-filled, and sparks hope for the strength and giftedness of these couples and posttraumatic growth for both partners.”
