Abstract
This thesis addresses the attitude of submission and its relevance to Christian faith and sought to evaluate if views on this are different for women who have been abused. This pseudo experiment took place by use of a spiritual formation group that included both abused and non-abused women. This was a six-week group. Concepts of submission were explored. Pre and post assessments were utilized to assess changes in attitude around this concept. The research indicated that the women in the group who had been abused found a sense of freedom and healing through a renewed life of submission to God.
