As a theology student at the graduate level and a person with a severe trauma history, I found this book borderline offensive to my personal faith and experience.
Developing a study that addresses the Trinitarian God is difficult enough without incorporating process theology into the mix. For a more proper theological understanding of God with regard to trauma, pick up Jennifer Beste's book "God and the Victim: Traumatic Intrusions on Grace and Freedom.
Not to say I didn't have points of disagreement with Beste's approach, but I found it more appropriate for the lay perspective both in terms of theological and psychological knowledge.

No, it's better than that: She moves beyond "Christus victor" -- Christ's victory over death -- into a theology of the cross that actually wrestles with death and what it means to watch your God die. She invites us into the post-trauma reality of Holy Saturday, and shows that this reality doesn't g Rambo creates a truly trauma-informed theology.
She invites us into the post-trauma reality of Holy Saturday, and shows that this reality doesn't go away just because resurrection occurs; indeed, it can't go away because of the effects of trauma. Highly recommend for anyone harmed or neglected by the church's abuse of power or its insistence that all things be happy -- you will find healing here, and a God who makes sense even in pain. I recommend it even more highly if you're in church leadership. Even if you don't think you've been traumatized which If you like jargon, complicated arguments, Theology, and trauma, this book is absolutely incredible.
It will now inform everything I ever read from this point forward.
Spirit and Trauma (Paper)
If you like writings that are clear without being overly redundant, use simple terms, and are not thick with references, this may not be the book for you. It is a difficult read, but its ideas are brilliant. Dec 14, Alex rated it really liked it Shelves: In Spirit and Trauma, Shelly Rambo looks at the cross through the lens of trauma.
In particular, she focuses on the often overlooked realm of Holy Saturday. In this sense, she views love as what remains in the aftermath of violence and trauma. When I first read a chapter out of this in grad school, I immediately connected with her ideas. She has a thorough and patient approach, and helps me to pause and note the significance of the connections between my work as a therapist and my views of trauma and God.
For anyone interested in trauma work, whether therapeutically or personally, this book is a must read. Jan 29, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: A Christian Theology of Religions.

Never-the-less I would encourage pastors, counselors, and supporters of trauma victims to give this book some time Amazing book I used in my CPE residency. Rambo takes on the ineffable topics of God and trauma in this book and does an amazing job of presenting one way to theologically process trauma for your congregation. She lifs up the power of Easter Saturday as a holy and sacred day of witnessing the timeless-ness of trauma and redemption.
