Item Description...
Overview
When you experience emotional injury, fear, shame, or pride your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, even yourself. Often you've learned these hiding patterns during childhood to protect yourself in a threatening environment. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature. What served as protection for a child becomes a prison to an adult. In Hiding from Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you to explore thoroughly the hiding patterns you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth that God has built into safe, connected relationships with himself and others. You'll discover: The difference between "good" and "bad" hiding, Why you hide the broken parts of your soul from the God who can heal them, How to be free to make mistakes without fear of exposing your failures and imperfections, How to obtain the joy and wholeness God intends you to have through healthy bonding with others. Complete with a discussion guide designed especially for small groups, Hiding from Love will take you on a journey of discovery toward healing, connected relationships, and a new freedom and joy in living.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent for PINPOINTING your problem  Dec 22, 2005
This is the FIRST book that I have ever read that actually pinpointed my exact problem. The book, however, offers a simple solution--find some safe people and open up to them and you will be alright. In my group, we didn't know how or where to find these safe people and, if we could open up to people, we probably wouldn't have the problem of hiding from love. To further help myself, I looked for books on "safe people." The only author to write such a book was McCloud and that book got bad reviews for not really telling you how to find safe people. Our group leader said the answer lies in building our self-esteem so I have found books to focus on that. Thus, this book is like a puzzle; unfortunately though, some of the puzzle pieces are missing.
 
Excellent read  Sep 19, 2005
This book arrived in excellent condition and in a timely manner. This book certainly ministers to the soul of anyone who reads it.
 
Specific answers, not platitudes  Jul 26, 2004
I have read almost everything I can get my hands on to help me understand myself, my ex, and why it all went wrong. I finally feel like I understand why we have the defenses we do, and why it's so hard to snap out of it. The author combines years of solid experience working with people in real clinical situations with inspirational insight into issues of the heart in light of the Biblical understanding God gives us about how He created us. This book was rare for me, because it is solid and specific about why we are afraid to reach out and grasp what we most need to truly heal. I found it especially different because it addresses the problem of well-meaning Christians who come across as judgemental when they are really trying to be loving and helpful, as well as the tendency sometimes in counseling to provide acceptance and safety without the truth and responsiblity we need to grasp the power to actually change. It is refreshing because it is solid, specific, and treats us as complex, wonderful but fallable children of God who are hurting and so to protect ourselves from further injury we hide, afraid to reach out and try again. But it is not a how-to formula book so much as a scriptural guidebook to see how God made us and how he heals us. This book is not just the same old same old. For me, this book was tremendously important for unlocking hurts and helping me understand. It's not as easily readable as some of his other books like Changes that Heal, Boundaries, or Safe People, but I think it builds on the others and goes deeper. It's about exactly what it says it is, why we hide from love and how to safely come out of our fears and become who we were created to be.
 
Awesome book  Feb 12, 2002
One of the best things about this book is that he backs up what he is saying by scripture. So you know the book is really based on the Bible. He also tells a lot of stories about other people which makes you feel as if it is not just a bunch of information being shoveled on you. I am only on chapter 4 but I have already learned so much about myself and the things that I have hidden in my life and why I have hidden them. I cannot wait to get further into the book and to start to learn how to change it!
 
very accessible and readable  Mar 15, 2001
I think many readers may find this book useful.

Whether you find it useful may depend on whether you are a beginner, that is, on your past exposure to self-development or spiritual growth reading. If you already have strong habits of introspection, you may find the approach of the book too simple for you. (The book is more about "withdrawal" than about fear of or struggle with intimacy.)

However, if you have not had much chance analyze your past, and want an approach that relies on a traditional foundation, then it book may be very useful to you.
