Highlighting a Good Book — “Tear Down This Wall of Silence”

Dale Ingraham with Rebecca Davis

Dale and Faith Ingraham [Internet Archive link] are warriors for justice and righteousness in Christ’s kingdom. They know all too well what it means to be a victim of sexual abuse within the community of the local Christian church. Sharing their own story about how Faith was molested for years by her Baptist pastor father, the Ingrahams open their lives to us and help us learn how this evil creeps into churches, hides behind a remarkably effective facade, and when exposed is so often covered up and enabled by the church community.

This is a good one! It is listed on our resources page here [Affiliate link] for easy ordering from cvbbs.com. [The cvbbs.com link was broken. We replaced it with our Amazon Affiliate link. Editors.]  Thank you Dale, Faith, and Rebecca Davis for this good work.


We also have Dale and Faith’s blog, Speaking the Truth in Love [Internet Archive link], on our blog roll, which is located on the side menu bar.


UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.

  1. Thank you for highlighting this book, Pastor Jeff. Ordering to support these courageous warriors in and for Christ’s kingdom. May God bless their efforts in this ministry. How fitting that part of the title states “(an introduction for those who will hear).”

  2. I bought the book today on Kindle. I have the desire to read it for my own learning. Also look forward to being able to more effectively tear down the wall of silence with others in the church. I am certain that many who no longer attend a local church have been harmed by this deadly silence.
