Usually i am skeptical about books that take psychological theories and try to dress it up as christian teaching. However i found this book to be excellent with firm biblical foundations. The author takes the doctrine of grace and looks at how this should effect our view of ourselves. He looks in detail at how it is possible to say that we believe in grace and that God has paid for our sins while living under a legalistic perfectionist outlook where we are constantly trying to prove to God that we are worthy of his and other peoples love. He lists cases of people destroyed through trying to meet unrealistic standards who deep down believe that love is dependent on meeting certain goals and isnt unconditional and who struggle to accept and love themselves as they should when they fail.

This book gave me a look into parts of my own personality that I didn't know existed. It speaks honestly about emotions, how they damaged by all kinds of things as we grow and never realize it until we're grown. I saw myself in the personalities described and could better understand the things that have happened in my life This is a great book for anyone that needs some understanding of why 'things' set them off or make them hurt that for most don't.

I thank a friend of mine for lending me her book in time of need. I will be buying my own copy. If you ever need to be encouraged and released from bondage from past or present hurts in your life, you may want to try reading this book. It moved me to make positive changes in my life. Depression and guilt can take so much out of one's life. I never knew how much baggage I was carrying until I read this book. It helped me understand guilt and depression and where it comes from and how to deal with what is and what isn't mine to carry. It was as if God himself was present in every word I read. I feel worthy of God's love again. The book helped me gain a better insight on life itself and how to live more abundantly without having to carry unneccessary guilt.

I have spent a life time holding resentments, feeling guilty, and holding myself hostage, never quite meeting God's or my own standards. This book helped me to understand a loving God, one of which I can go to just as I am. This has freed me of all the baggage and the high expectations that I 'thought' I had to meet in order to come to Christ, or to be worthy of his love. As a result of reading this book, I now have a wonderful relationship with The Lord, and also with myself and others. The book has truely changed my life. I am in the proceess of reading all of David Seamands' books. A must read for everyone! Run to get it NOW!

Excellent book for damaged Emotions!! A must read book. Great inside! Sometimes is not enough to just pray and ask God to heal you. Sometimes our pain is deeper than that. That's what this book is about. Short but powerful!

'This book really helped me see my perfectionism in a new light. It helped me see why I should get my self worth from God. It gave me some good ways to deal with depression. It is a very comforting, encouraging, and helpful book. '

My niece told me about this book . . . and knowing my upbringing and Mother (her grandmother) said I HAD to read this book. In most chapters, I felt naked . . . as if for the first time, someone was saying my deepest, darkest secrets outloud. I wish I had an email address for him . . . 'cause I have one question . .. but alas . . . I shall reread the book, in case I missed something. It was an eye opener . . . and made me realize, I need to forgive at least two people who already asked for forgiveness . . . but at least one of them, I didn't believe their asking was sincere, therefore, so was my forgiveness.

I really enjoyed reading almost every single thought and feeling i experience daily. Its nice to know why i do ...i think i will reread it ,to try and grasp the healing part and process this. That im having trouble grasping however its not an overnight process but it is a daily process. I pray i do heal.

God has used this book to wipe away the confusion and frustration that I have endured over many, many years. This book has given me understanding and God has set me free. I can now forgive others and ESPECIALLY myself! I now know the difference between bad theology and true Christian maturity. If you hate yourself or are muddling through the muck and mire of depression, then let David Seamands show you your TRUE self and the TRUTH about the unconditional love that God has for you.
