Violence in Society is a subject of study as well as a matter of concern, more so in terms of Gender-Based Violence; not only for students of criminology and law but also of theology, human rights and civil society at large. The study of Christian Education is not only for acquiring the knowledge of the Bible and the Christian faith alone, but also for the holistic transformation of the society. The age-old practice of customary laws in which women are treated as inferior, in terms of depriving them from God-given opportunities, is the worst problem in every society. The goal of Christian Education is to address issues of historical injustices, traditional oppressive ideology; and it is responsible for proclaiming redeeming activity and concern for all humanity. Therefore, this book examines the age-old practice of Gender-Based Violence by identifying different forms of Gender-Based Violence both in Church and Society and has suggested relevant ways of responding to it through Christian Education.
