Reviews - What do customers think about Building Self-Esteem: The Christian Dimension?
Creative Insight into self-improvement Aug 11, 2006
Building Self-Esteem is a book to read/study/reference and meditate upon. For those like me, looking to enhancing their lives it is thought evoking, encourages self-expansion and helps to build spiritual awareness besed on Christian principles.
Anselm Gruen is a theologan and an experienced psychologist and exceptional spiritual counsellor. He has a deep perception of every day life problems and is able to portray humanity, the world and its failings in a positive and spiritual way.
To me personally, this book is a self-help training manual, a non-directive counselling tool which helps in developing self-understanding, self-awareness, self-respect, self-confidence. Anselm Gruen's creative approach to life, confronts, challenges and encourages positive responses to human failings. He suggests practical ways of expanding ones capabilities both physically and spiritually without hampering the freedom and dignity of the individual.
I currently use the book by re-reading a small part at a time while travelling to work in the morning. This allows me to reflect further during the day.
