A Proven Path to Move from Shame to Healing
If you persistently feel you don't measure up, you are feeling shame—that vague, undefined heaviness that presses on our spirit, dampens our gratitude for the goodness of life, and diminishes our joy. The good news is that shame can be healed. With warmth and wit, Lewis B. Smedes examines why and how we feel shame, and presents a profound, spiritual plan for healing. Step by step, Smedes outlines the road to well-being and the peace that comes from knowing we are accepted by the grace of One whose acceptance of us matters most.
Lewis B. Smedes (1921-2002) was a renowned author, ethicist, and theologian. He was a professor of theology and ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, for twenty-five years. He is the award-winning author of fifteen books, including Forgive and Forget.

This is a must read for every pastor. The book also gives an explanation for what drives many of the "successful" pastors and laypeople, the need to be significant and erase their shame.
Terez Giuliana5 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2007Terez GiulianaThis book changed my life! Smedes' books (this one and many of his others) revealed to me the depth of God's unconditional love when I felt so completely unlovable. Shame is like rust...it eats away at you...and the only cure is God's love. I have given away more copies of this book than I can count. It is especially good for people going through divorce.
