""LeRoy Aden, an articulate theologian deeply ensconced in the historic Lutheran equation of law and gospel, knows more about guilt personally and theologically than anyone else. As in all his published works, he demonstrates here his superb skill in sharing his perspective with us in a highly readable style for anyone from a bright high schooler to an inquiring graduate student. This book exudes the passion and heart of the pastor Dr. Aden is in all his relationships.""

""While many therapists and theologians focus on the corrosive effects of shame . . . Aden takes a new look at the dynamics of guilt, with rich results. Dr. Aden visits clinical examples and literary figures with trenchant observation and wise insight. Looking closely at the power of guilt to harm us, Aden also lifts up the positive contribution of guilt in our search for forgiveness and fulfillment. Highly recommended for lay readers . . . as well as professionals who work with the guilt-laden soul.""
