The Broken Scout eBook
The riveting true account of a vulnerable young boy who endured a decade of sexual abuse throughout his childhood by his Scout leader.
Conditioned to obey without question by a proud, domineering mother, Tom was brainwashed, abused, and threatened with a gun by his Scout leader. Ten years of hidden abuse set the stage for chaos in his personal relationships, and the fallout in his family as an adult.
This inspiring first-person story takes the reader beyond the abuse to Tom’s lifelong challenges of dealing with the aftermath as a man. From helping bring Boy Scouts of America to accountability and justice, to surviving cancer and family upheavals, including divorce, drug abuse, and tragedy, Tom Stewart relied on his faith in God to see him through.
This raw and intimate account answers these questions:
- Should the unforgivable be forgiven?
- Does faith in God really make a difference?
- Can good come out of the worst situations?
- Are hope and healing possible after the trauma of abuse?
