The major purpose of the book is to help rape-proof children to help prevent sexual abuse from today forward. All mothers and fathers should be aware of the advice on how to keep their children safe from pedophiles.
A secondary, but important reason that this book has been written is to help those who have been sexually abused when they were children take steps along the road to their own recovery. This is mostly new information, not to be found in any other place. It is derived from knowledge that the author has amassed from dealing with survivors of sexual abuse who have been successful in banishing its hold over them. The author tells their stories in the hope that others will learn from what has worked for them.

The pitfalls of the Internest are discussed in detail, and parents are alerted to different methods by which they can keep their children safe from the pedophiles who lurk there. It is estimated that one in five children is sexually solicited on the Internet each year. Your child should know what to do when this happens.
Along the way, some segments of society come into focus as being unhelpful in waging war against sexual abuse. Doctors, School Boards and the Roman Catholic Church are among those whose conduct is found wanting, who are urged to do better to safeguard our kids.
The book is frank, open and honest. The details of sexual abuse are, of necessity, graphic. They are told in a way no survivor of sexual abuse would be likely to explain in his or her own writing, because the facts of the abuse are so painful, even sixty or more years after the event.
This book is a must read for parents of young children, law enforcement officials, doctors, therapists, teachers and even pedophiles, who will learn here that the rules have changed for them and it is a now a more dangerous time to be a pedophile than at any time in history.
While there are stark stories told of man's and woman's inhumanity to children here, there is also a message of hope that individuals and society can help eliminate the scourge of childhood sexual abuse, and the knowledge of how to do so is contained within these pages.
This is a book of hope and a call to arms. It has the power to re-shape a generation for the better.
Unforgivable Sins, once read, will never be forgotten. It is written from the best place in the heart of the author and directed to the best place in the hearts of us all - the place where children are kept safe and whole and secure. The place where we wish all of our children to grow and to thrive.
