Reviews - What do customers think about Shame: Thief of Intimacy : Unmasking the Accuser (Aglow Bible Study)?
Whether or not you realize it, shame can shape your life! Mar 8, 2000
This book was Divine Revelation as to how shame had a grip on my life. We all experience "moments of truth" in our lives. This book did that for me. I realized while it's good to be "driven", it is also important to recognize what's at the root of the drive. For me, having identified "shame triggers" throughout my life was the first step to discovering the Father's love and accepting myself as a child of the Living God. Today, I walk with a new "God confidence". Thank you Marie Powers for being sensitive the Holy Spirit and obedient to reveal the lies of the enemy.
Excellent resource Jan 6, 2000
My wife read this book. She found it to be just what she was expecting. It gave her good insights for herself and for those to whom she ministers everyday.
Our shame, whether it is legitimate or not, gets in the way of our relationships, both with people and with God. Until we deal with the shame in our lives and with the source of that shame we will be unable to become fully intimate with anyone.

Prospective buyers should be aware that the book is a feel-good discussion with a heavily religious slant. Anyone expecting an ideology-free discussion of the relationship between shame and intimacy should be prepared to read that "God's remedy for legitimate shame is the Cross of Christ" (p.9).
