When a counselor at my church recommended I read this book, I wasn't sure why because I didn't think I had any "shame" issues. I was amazed after the author explains what shame really is, and how we all have some level of shame in our lives. For me, this book has given me a new found freedom in life and in my walk with God. Filled with sound Christian doctrine and uplifting scripture. His insights are deep and well-researched, and he covers a wide spectrum of the causes of our shame. He leaves the reader feeling very educated on shame, but also very encouraged and equipped on how to proceed in throwing OFF our shame.

15 years ago a counselor asked me what my shame was. I had NO clue what he was talking about... until now. I didn't have "shame"...I thought. There is nothing in this book that isn't applicable to everyone in some way. I wish I could have read this BEFORE I had children, and before I ruined some relationships. Maybe you don't have any shame, but others around you may be driven by shame.

My wife and I attended the church for that Alan is pastor when we lived in Winston-Salem, and count him and his family as our friends. This book, like others that Alan has written, will significantly change your life for the better. As Christians, Alan reminds us that we are convicted of our sin, but not condemned for it. For too long, most Christians have been shamed too much and loved too little, as Christ loves us.

Buy this book, and share it with your friends who also suffer from shame-based identities. You will be glad you did.

Very few books have the ability to truly change your life. This book is one of them. Each chapter serves as an independent lesson that supports a unified theme. I suggest this book for parents, children, leaders, teachers, bosses, employees, that means just about everyone.

I read this book after attending a Free Yourself Be Yourself seminar at the church where Alan pastors. The seminar just scratched the surface, the book took the topic of shame to a whole new level, and the workbook (can be purchased separately) gave me a depth of understanding to the pain in my soul that nothing else had been able to. I've read the bible for 25 + years, attended bible teaching churches and have gone to bible based counseling. But until I read (and reread) this book, I wasn't aware of how shame had been fueling my emotions, actions, and reactions. My eyes have been opened though the pages of this book. Alan is candid about his own struggles and that makes his writing refreshing and winsome. I only wish I could encourage EVERYONE to read this b/c at one level or another, I believe we all need it.

Wonderful book. I am thankful that Alan D. Wright allowed God to work through him in this life-changing book. He is very knowledgable on the subject of shame; is bound by accurate Scriptures, and places the healing process in an easy-to-read, transformational format. I've already recommended this book to many.

What a wonderful gift! Allen shares some of the most intimate moments in his Christian life - his relationship with God. This book is full of good news for anyone who suffers from low self-esteem. It is uplifting and soothing to the injured soul. I highly reccomend it!!

Alan Wright's message of "shame off you" is very significant for the religious community. People of different denominational stripes often use shame-based techniques to control and manipulate others, not always for religious purposes though. I found Chapter seven to be very enlightening as Wright explains that Jesus not only takes away our guilt, but also our shame - He bore our sorrows as well. Actually, shame is at the root of many of our ills. The same ills that cause emotional pain that lure us into all sorts of harmful sources of anesthesia like alcohol and drug abuse and myriad bad choices. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus Christ has made atonement for our guilt and shame in order that we might live, joyfully and guilt-free, in Him. This book will especially be helpful to those who have unwittingly played the role of scapegoat to people who play the "blame/shame game" on a regular basis. You don't have to play that role in their lives! Shame off you!!
