Theoretically rich and empirically sound, this provocative study demonstrates that shame, a history of childhood corporal punishment, and certain religious beliefs are contributing factors to the cycle of violence that can occur over generations in families. Good begins her study with a thorough survey of the psychological and pastoral literature that deals with issues surrounding shame, corporal punishment, and beliefs about God. She then describes the results of her research that involved having individuals complete questionnaires on childhood punishment, religious practices, and feelings about suicide and depression. These results were then compared with those from tests designed to measure shame, guilt, and violence between adult partners. Good's research suggests that higher levels of violence and shame correspond with punitive images of God and that childhood corporal punishment may result in a higher incidence of adult depression. This fascinating work provides insight into psychological issues that affect many adults today and will be of interest to anyone who is concerned with healing the wounds of those who suffered through childhood violence.
