Item description for Who Told You That You Were Naked?: Freedom From Judgement, Guilt and Fear of Punishment by John Jacob Raub...
Overview Based on principles from A Course in Miracles--an irresistible invitation to accept the unconditional love of God! Writing with great simplicity about our unbreakable union with God, Raub maintains that it is only because we deny this union that we judge and condemn ourselves--and others.

Acceptance of self leads to love of self, God & others Oct 29, 2006
Getting rid of fear and guilt is not an easy task and one must ask for the grace of letting go and letting be.
We are who we are, human, imperfect and full of guilt about our imperfections. Letting go is the only way to fulfill our humanness. Its okay, all is right with the world, there is no need to pretend to be other than who we were created to become.
We have become laden with heaviness with our "sins" we are unable to accept ourselves and our growth. No one is born perfect and no one will die perfect.
Christ came to lead us to the Father and became human to show us the "way". The "way" to God the Father, the "way" to our heart, the "way" to love and be loved. Christ took upon himself our burdens, our hopes, our dreams our very selves to show us the "way" to peace, joy and love.
John Jacob Raub draws an excellent portrayal of our human dilemma and encourages us to acknowledge our guilt and fear and move on with our lives.
Growth is the only evidence of life. Let us walk tenderly with our God and may God be merciful throughout our journey with Him.

What a fantastic book! Aug 21, 2006
I agree with the other reviewers who wrote that this book is not revolutionary in its thought; but I think that's the point. Br. Raub is reiterating the words and messages of Christ in an up-to-date and easy-to-understand (and apply) way. I have used its lessons for more than 10 years, have recommended this book to so many people, and am in the process of buying yet another copy to pass along. In response to the reviewer who felt inundated with its messages, I want to suggest that I found this book much more helpful when I read a few sections and spent time (anywhere from an hour to a month!) considering them before proceeding; rather than reading it straight through. To anyone who's considering this book, I'd like to say: BUY IT, READ IT, CONSIDER IT ~ you won't be sorry.
Unconditional Love spelled out Oct 29, 2005
Great book. Went to Gethsemene to meet him! Thomas Merton would be proud. Like "Silence on Fire" by Wiliam Shannon, the editor of the Thomas Merton papers. Hope the word gets out!
How to get to heaven without guilt Sep 12, 2005
This is trully a remarkable book. While reading this book everything within me wanted to give the author lectures and quote verse and authority to him. But he won me over to feel that one should give substantial weight to his position in balancing one's own position. While I was not bowled over by the genius and brilliance of a Merton, or seduced by Mertons gift with language, I felt that the Holy spirit might just have offered a little input to this work, as I am certain he did with much of Merton's work as well, but a true humility seems to shine through all the while presenting something that seems to shake our roots, though often those roots are little more than the church's equivalent of old wifes tales.
a must read..... Feb 13, 2004
amazing ideas laid out in a logical, easy to understand format. not a really religious type book (although it is based upon Christian ideals), its more spiritual........ it's a bit wordy (i was saying "i get it, i get it", by 3/4 the way through) but truely some revolutionary thoughts that inspired me in an eye opening way......a must read for anybody questioning their spirituality or looking for more answers.
