The Biblical View of Self-Esteem, Self-Love, and Self-Image by Jay E. Adams

Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Familiar questions in our day and age. But has our search for answers led us too far in the wrong direction: away from our true position in Christ and toward a dangerous emphasis on self?

Recent decades have seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Identified by labels such as “self-image,” “self-esteem,” “self-worth,” and “self-love,” this movement has one common denominator—the emphasis on self. Regardless of religious persuasion, everyone seems to be fighting what they perceive to be a shared enemy: low self-esteem.

Now well-known biblical counselor and noted author Jay Adams brings much-needed clarification to the area of self-esteem and offers the church and every believer a truly biblical view of self.

Another great work by Adams. Aside from could be perceived as alot of sarcasm when talking about the self-esteem movement and it's implications, Adam's does great work here, laying out the errors of self-esteem centered thinking, explaining what a Biblical view of man is and helping us to think clearly on this issue. These false teachings have been around now for decades and today's culture basically drinks in these concepts wholesale. It's now become almost criminal to tell someone their real problem is not that they don't love themselves, but that they love themselves too much. This shows that, unfortunately, the church has not done a good job in proclaiming the truth on these matters to the culture in which it lives. Highly recommend basically anything by Adam's. He's by no means infallible, but his insight, serious biblical exegesis is a gift to the church. The man has written on almost every topic and you will almost always be helped by him.

This quick book hits on the major points of the movement, and then gives a direct biblical response. The author then seeks to give direction for the spiritual seeker. The book is only 143 pages but is an excellent introduction for the biblically minded.
