Do You Need Greater Self-Esteem-Or Something Else Entirely?

Western culture increasingly emphasizes the importance of self-love and self-esteem. Many of us believe we must “find” ourselves-and feel good about what we see-before we can experience significant spiritual growth. Focusing so much on ourselves, however, distracts us from pursuing the only source of true fulfillment. Do we, as Gods people, really need to love ourselves more? Or is there a wiser, biblical path that can lead us to joy that is not self-centered and fleeting, but God-focused and lasting?

Challenging the current fascination with self esteem, Leslie Vernick answers these questions and others that trip up Christians today. Offering surprising insights and practical helps that can make a real difference in your life, she shows how you can experience greater personal, relational, and spiritual growth while humbly adoring and glorifying your God.

Synopsis:

In "Courageous Humility, " a social worker suggests that a return to the Judeo-Christian model of valuing self in relationship with God and others will bring about greater personal happiness, better relationships, and a deeper intimacy with God.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [191]-200).

Synopsis:

At times, everyone struggles. Catastrophes strike, spouses let one another down, and people struggle after the elusive self-love society urges us to achieve. Scripture offers solid advice to help in these common situations--and in these three compassionate and hard-hitting books, Leslie Vernick presents key insights and practical applications to drive home these crucial biblical truths.
