Overview

Shame is everywhere.

Whether it's related to relationships, body image, work difficulties, or a secret sin, we all experience shame at some point in our lives. While shame can manifest itself in different ways--fear, regret, and anger--it ultimately points us to our most fundamental need as human beings: redemption.

Shame never disappears in solitude, and Heather Davis Nelson invites us to not only be healed of our own shame but also be a part of healing for others. She shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, giving us courage us to walk out of shame's shadows and offering hope for our bondage to brokenness. Through the gospel, we discover the only real and lasting antidote to shame: exchanging our shame for the righteousness of Christ alongside others on this same journey.

Nelson draws on her work as a counselor and her education at Westminster Theological Seminary for this probing look at shame and its effects on many corners of our lives. As she explains in the introduction, Nelson draws significantly on the work of author Brené Brown, layering in additional insight on shame from a biblical perspective. With scriptural references, personal anecdotes, and composites drawn from her counseling work, she examines shame generated by body image, social comparisons, and performance, and provides a response based on how the Bible says God views us. Nelson also applies those principles in day-to-day relationships, with chapters on how shame functions in marriage, parenting, and within the church. Her strategic use of reflection questions at the end of each chapter and appendices on body, eating disorders, and abuse help personalize the material without sidetracking the conversation. Some readers may wish for an approach that's warmer with personal narrative, but Nelson's choice to ground the topic firmly in scripture and counseling experience offer a valuable framework for addressing shame.
