Thought provoking read

Benner gives us reason to consider our own way of interacting with others and with God. Have we developed a false self? I was apprehensive about the thought of knowing God better by understand self, but there is a logic to it. Consider for yourself.

An excellent book about how we construct and try to maintain "false selves"

A wonderful and concise book about how we can know ourselves as we really are, which is how God knows us. It was eye-opening!
