The Soul of Shame: (Re)Telling the Stories we Believe About Ourselves:

It’s everywhere. There is no relationship or vocational endeavor that it does not infect. It is evil’s weapon of choice in dismantling every effort toward goodness and beauty. From the classroom to the boardroom, from the residence hall to the halls of power and higher learning. It seeks to destroy—as it has from the beginning—all that God intends for the world to be. What is the essence of shame? How does it work to devour us and disintegrate the mind along the way? How do we realize healing from this dark experience of our lives? And how does that very healing lead to vocational liberation and creativity, the likes of which we otherwise may never know?
