Bravo! Forrester pushes his finger into the bruise of our shame to say "Yes you've been forgiven but it sure don't feel like it, huh?" He then walks us through how the church began to emphasize the absolution of guilt but neglected the attending and devastating side effect, namely shame. A journey through the Scriptures shows how God addressed it all along and perhaps God's emphasis may have been on restoring our dignity rather than pointing out our lack thereof. Must read for pastors and counselors or anyone who wants to wade into some murky water to find some clear.

John Forrester has gifted us with a very important work on a very important topic. Few today have any understanding of the complex experience of shame -- or of the complex and significant role of religion in its healing, in making whole those disabled by it. It is a shame that this book is published by a less well known publisher, so that it has not been adequately promoted. Although in some ways aimed at "religious professionals," _Grace for Shame_ will benefit anyone concerned about the healing -- the making whole -- of human hurt.

This is the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel. It also has the best literature review and bibliography of shame of all the many books on the topic that I have read. It will give you hope. Please buy and read this book. Then go and live it! Thank you John. Well done, good and faithful servant.
