Self-Esteem: The New Reformation
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Top Customer Reviews
The book begins with a quotation of a University professor of psychiatry who congratulates Schuller for his promotions. "you have pursued a religious route and I have pursued a scientific path, and we have both arrived at the same bottom line: unconditional self-esteem...I would say man`s deepest flaw is to mistrust himself...Perhaps we are at an area why psychiatric and religious thinking can be synergetic..."
To this Schuller agrees. Christians need Christ plus psychology. Christians like him tray to integrate psychology in theology. Why is this? The author says it is just for the psychologic health of the people. But why has the Bible no psychology in it. I mean the conclusion is apparent, either the Bible is incomplete and erroneously claiming that you need only faith in Christ to be healed spiritually or psychology is a worldly means to make ends meet with whatsoever asked for results.
Schuller says "the church needs more than anything else" this new reformation "nothing less will do". So, Jesus Christ also will not do! This is a confession only the Catholic church held so far.Read more ›

I bought this book for apologetic reference. This pseudo theology has no place in a Christian's life. Paul's words of crucifying the flesh is anathema to Schuller's teaching.Published on February 22, 2014 by James Shannon
