Mr. Welch has written an outstanding book to help those who feel worthless and labour under an inferiority complex all their lives. Those who grew up with abusive or demanding parents and therefore have these feelings deeply ingrained in them will find this book particularly helpful. While there are many very fine features of this book there are two I found particularly helpful.

Firstly, Mr. Welch has a very fine chapter on the holiness of God based on Isaiah ch. 6. Now when we hear about the holiness of God we usually think of God being completely pure and sinless and not able to even look upon sin. This, of course, is all correct. But we tend to forget that God being holy means God is not like men. This is the point that Mr. Welch brings out with great force. His thesis in this chapter on the holiness of God is that while other human beings may have treated you in a certain way and today treat you in a certain way, do not transfer these to God. God is not like men. Where men may have rejected you and treated you with disdain and cruelty, God is not like that.

I found this helpful because like many others I used to think that God thought of me as others thought of me. In one sense this was a revolutionary thought (though I am ashamed to say it should not have been as I have been a Christians a few years).

Secondly, Mr. Welch points out cogently that Christ, far from rejecting the failures of society and seeking out the successes of society, actually sides with the failures and relates to them. It is for them He came and it is to them that He addresses His call to come to Him and find love and acceptance and salvation.

This is an excellent book on shame, its roots, ways it is manifested in life and how it can be healed. I never expected that I would be able to learn from it so much! Like most people I thought that the subject of shame was far away from me and wasn't relevant to me whatsoever. Oh, how wrong I was. Shame is in all of us but we usually don't realize it. Ed Welch is a Christian counselor. He is not only very wise, but also loving in his writing. I learned many crucial lessons from this book. Thank you Dr Welch! This is one of the most helpful books I have ever read! I highly recommend it to everyone!!!

A shady mask-like existence, can easily overtake our lives. We can all too easily feel like frauds, waiting to be exposed. Shame's presence extends far too far. Overcoming on our own is not possible, and never God's plan for us.

Ed Welch paints a winsome and wise pathway to the power of the blood of Jesus: how through Jesus you and I can be covered, adopted, cleansed, and healed. This book is top class stuff in the battle to live well! Welch tracks the long biblical history of shame, starting with Adam and Eve's story of nakedness, rejection, and contamination. It is sacrificially seen in Christ and yet is something you and I bump into on a daily if not weekly basis. All does not have to be as it is.... and we have great and eternal help in the only true liberation, found in the cross.

"The reality is that unclean people can't wash anything. Only the Holy One can make us holy. That leaves us with one alternative, and it is the hardest thing for an unclean person to do. Just state the obvious: `I am unclean and I live with people who are unclean.'" This is pastoral theology at its richest and best. I've already signposted people to this great new book and have a couple of copies coming for others. This comprehensive 29-chapter work has accompanying discussion resources and is a confident help and gracious evidence that the gospel speaks to every human emotion. Fresh and compelling stuff!

Because our society in the West is not one that speaks of shame and honour, it leads us to think that shame is not that important. How wrong we are! Rather, it means that we don't have the language to talk about something that affects every one of us. We talk about feeling 'guilty', perhaps, or inferior, not realsing that we are often describing shame. The church urgently needs to rediscover the priority that the Bible has for shame, and how God is dealing with it.

Ed Welch's book is enormously helpful for introducing a topic that many of us think of too seldom. It is not written like a textbook, however, but rather feels like he is counselling the reader, slowly layering on truths through the text. Although it is written in mind for those who have deep causes for their shame, like past abuse, or unwanted attractions, it will be of great benefit to any reader who is seeking to apply the truths of the gospel to either their own lives, or in order to help others.

Good presentation of shame and how it relates to different topics in the Bible. An eye opener for how much the topic of shame is part of the biblical story.
