Shame Interrupted: How God Lifts the Pain of Worthlessness and Rejection
4 in stock
Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure... it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. Time doesn't help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done.
However, the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God's beautiful words break through. Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalised and worthless are his favourites and become his people. God cares for the shamed - through Jesus you are covered, adopted, cleansed and healed.
"This is more than an important and redemptive book; it is a labor that could open the field of counseling, soul care, and pastoral work to a vital reformation that comes when one has cut open a path that has laid dormant for too long."
