This is my first book by Robert S McGee and it would not be my last.
In the Search for Significance Mr. McGee deals with emotional struggles which we go through from time to time and gives us a coping mechanism for handling these burdensome problems. As a result of trusting God we see the many wonderful things that can happen. The writer expounds on Self worth,
Performance, Others opinions of us, and False beliefs of ourselves which we just allow to live within us. He introduces us also to
The Performance Trap
The Approval Addict
The Blame Game and
Shame
All of these are answered through God's truth in the Bible and brings us back to healthy living along with repentance and obedience. It shows how much God cares for us and how totally he accepts us. We have not only been forgiven of our sins but we have received God's righteousness and made heirs with him.
There are a lot of people out there who would not know they need this type of book until they start to read the back cover. Trust me,it is for you as well.

This life changing book is a must read for any Christ follower at any stage of life. However, it is most valuable for those of us who have a head knowledge of the love of God, but didn't really realize that we did not have a heart knowledge of the depth of God's love no matter what we have done in the past.Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is to forgive yourself and let God love you the way He desires and seeks after us. The author, Robert McGee sends the reader through a very Biblical and methodical look at Satan's lies that keep us in bondage that we must work to get God's acceptance and approval even if we have faith in God. The workbook and personality quizes are interactive and thorough. This book is very encouraging!

Best book since the Bible for reformation of your spirit. It applies each tenant of the Gospel to your psyche. It has freed me to be more like a child, who isnt self conscious and shamed or guilty. Because I know that God deeply and unconditionally loves me I am freed and relaxed in that spiritual/emotional environment, which allows me to be the unique indidual who God created. This is not easy, but if you really persue it, God will use the Gospel to transform your beliefs about yourself and about Him and His ability to forgive you and His ablility to love you. It took me over 2 years and working through this book twice with a group at church for this to really start to break down my shame and guilt and my disbelief in God's love and mercy. But once my beliefs were transforming, I started becoming truly emancipated. I am so thankful for this book and class.

This book will challenge anyone whose willing to be honest with him/herself. It will help you deal with root issues of heart and understand more about yourself, as well as others. This book is not for the weak hearted. It's for the man/woman who has a longing to dive deeper into issues of self-worth, motivations, habits, attitudes, etc. Do not be deceived...if you're that person who has a high self-esteem this book will still challenge you in every area. I think it's for the Christian and non-Christian a like. I recommend reading the book with the workbook and a study group. I've had the opportunity to meet with several other women over the past few weeks and discuss a chapter at a time. Each person brings a new angle and perspective to the study.

When in your 40s your life begins to fall apart around you, loss of family, career, health, etc. you don't want to find out that it has been you that has destroyed it all. This book has opened my eyes to a cancer that I carried unknowingly, but with devastating effects. Don't wait to get well. This book helped when 3-4 years of vatrious counseling didn't even touch---it's a book that I consider inspired by God to help us. On a scale of 1 to 5 it is a 37. May God's Spirit comfort you and lift you.

Our church used this book in a class setting. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who feel that their life is insignificant. According this book, Mr. McGee points out that God says that our lives are signigicant and that we have a purpose. Even when we fail, God still loves us. It has made an impact on my life. I have begun to trust God more and know that he loves me not based on my performance, but because he loves me for who I am. I will fail in life and so will you. Always remember that when we feel like punishing ourselves, God is there to help us up. That is what this book is all about: How significant you are to God and to others around you, even through the tough times.

"The Search For Significance" is a book that I had wanted to read for some time. A couple of friends had recommended it to me, including one in a small group I attended who said it helped him with relational issues. Therefore, I was glad to see "Search For Significance" on the reading list for one of my seminary courses. When I finished it, I was not disappointed. I found it to be very well done and a solid aid to my walk with God in the area of proper self-concept.
As with "Victory Over The Darkness", I was really encouraged by the heavy Scriptural emphasis in "Search For Significance." This was especially important, given the author's theme concerning how our self-concept should be based on God's view of us. Such an assertion required the proper usage of key Biblical passages, and McGee took care to do just that. Indeed, the author actually stated his awareness that the Word of God is our final authority on our identity in Christ, regardless of the negative messages from the world, Satan, and even from within us.
The book's overall organization was also an important feature of "Search For Significance." McGee created a solid, simple outline that formed the foundation for the book. First, he lists the "Four False Beliefs" - Performance, Approval, Blame, and Shame - that cover the major negative self-concept pitfalls which people tend to embrace. He then goes on to identify "God's Answer" to each false belief - Justification, Reconciliation, Propitiation, and Regeneration - and provides the Scriptural basis for these answers. The outline is especially helpful because it provides a concise, at-a-glance reminder of the book's overall theme that makes it easier to comprehend and apply his teachings.
