Publisher's Summary

The Gospel Coalition Top Books of 2015 in Faith and Work
Hearts & Minds Bookstore's Best Books of 2015, Applied Theology, Basic Christian Living, Whole Life Discipleship
We're all infected with a spiritual disease. Its name is shame. Whether we realize it or not, shame affects every aspect of our personal lives and vocational endeavors. It seeks to destroy our identity in Christ, replacing it with a damaged version of ourselves that results in unhealed pain and brokenness. But God is telling a different story for your life.
Psychiatrist Curt Thompson unpacks the soul of shame, revealing its ubiquitous nature and neurobiological roots. He also provides the theological and practical tools necessary to dismantle shame, based on years of researching its damaging effects and counseling people to overcome those wounds. Thompson's expertise and compassion will help you identify your own pains and struggles and find freedom from the lifelong negative messages that bind you. Rewrite the story of your life and embrace healing and wholeness as you discover and defeat shame's insidious agenda.

This is very good for anyone who is feeling deep shame or having trouble getting through this feeling. It explains everything you want to know about shame. Some are obvious and then some are not so obvious. This could be extremely helpful to a lot of people. Well written and narrated. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Wonderful & Annoying

I will say this is a 5 star in defining, revealing what shame is and what to do about it.
I don’t like the doctrinal push on his view of God and Christ. I thought no as a psychiatrist he should be mindful that not everyone is a Catholic or a Christian or a believer in God. He should have stayed in the psychological wisdom the Bible does provide.. which he does 90% of the time - but as readers we become your patient or student. This though your book you enforce God, the Trinity and that will be disturbing to many listeners.

However as I bypass those issues and some of the rambling tangents ... I really do think this book is going to help me.
