A Proven Path to Move from Shame to Healing
If you persistently feel you don't measure up, you are feeling shame--that vague, undefined heaviness that presses on our spirit, dampens our gratitude for the goodness of life, and diminishes our joy. The good news is that shame can be healed. With warmth and wit, Lewis B. Smedes examines why and how we feel shame, and presents a profound, spiritual plan for healing. Step by step, Smedes outlines the road to well-being and the peace that comes from knowing we are accepted by the grace of One whose acceptance of us matters most.

Addrssing the Reality of Shame and Practical Ways to Deal with It Feb 9, 2007
Smedes has done his best work in this brief, but effective work on the reality of shame and how shame can inhibit our ability to even function or have healthy relationships. It is very easy to identify with his descriptions of shame and how, from a Christian standpoint, to counteract this potent destroyer of a person being able to reach their full potential.

Honest about Shame Jan 3, 2006
Smedes' strength in this book is his balance between academic investigation into the causes of shame and nature of grace, and the pastoral, almost familial sensitivity with which he discusses it. Shame and depressing rob us of real life -- don't let them any more. If you are plagued with the sense that you are just not worth much in this world, let Lewis help you understand the gritty power of grace that God offers.

Break Those Addictions! Sep 28, 2002
If you have addictions of any kind, you should read this book. At the core of what keeps us addicted is often shame and the rejection of the power of grace. We may be shamed by ourselves, our family, our church or our society. We miss the magnitude and scope of God's grace. Satan thrives on that and convinces us how despicable we are, driving us further into our addictions (how can a miserable person like me deserve to be close to God). A vicious cycle, which was close to being broken, continues anew. This book helps us understand that, which gets us on the path to recovery.
