Item Description...
Overview
This book is written for Christians who live under a deeply ingrained code of written and unwritten expectations and rules that shame them and drain them of spiritual strength. Here are some tell-tale signs:
* Always struggling spiritually, but never feeling anything but tiredness.
* Always feeling guilty-nothing is ever "good enough."
* Rest is impossible--even when it's needed.
* Performance expectations prove you'll never "measure up."
* The Christian life has ceased to be a joy.

If those signs match your experience, this book is for you. The author is not trying to get you to behave in a "Christian" manner. If trying hard were the key to the victorious Christian life, you'd probably be in the hall of fame by now, don't you think? This is a message to help you unmask the lies that keep you on a works--righteousness treadmill, to help you discover the liberation of the gospel of grace in Jesus Christ and the rest that comes through what Christ has done on the cross.

When there's more emphasis on doing right than knowing God and His grace, this book points the way to freedom.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
highly recommended book  Apr 12, 2008
Great discussion of the self and grace, and of what constitutes healthy Christian spirituality. Good for the spiritually tired...His other book about family is very good too...Highly recommend his writings.
 
For Christians struggling w/ self image, pride, or performance and not finding answers  Apr 2, 2008
I am a Christian counselor and I originally bought this book so I could recommend it to clients...but wow has it impacted the entire way I view reality. I now understand my own and others problems in an entirely different light. So much of therapy is dealing with low self esteem, performance orientation, etc. This book made me realize why....beucase we're asking the wrong questions..and thereby looking in the wrong places for answers. It isn't about what I can DO to get better or feel better about myself or live up to expectations...it's about WHO I am IN CHRIST.
So much of the New Testament makes sense to me in a deeper way now.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I believe that it will be a book that I continually return to.
 
Tired of Trying to Measure Up  Dec 8, 2007
If you are tired of trying to please all of the people all of the time and discovering that it is never enough... this is your book. Be free of shame.
 
THIS BOOK IS ONLY FOR CHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE CHRIST WAS DIVINE, AND NO ONE ELSE  Nov 12, 2006
How can the book's description say that you do not have to be a Christian, yet: "discover the liberation of the gospel of grace in Jesus Christ and the rest that comes through what Christ has done on the cross"?

I do not get it. I bought it and was very disapppointed. I do not believe in anyone's divinity. How can I relate to the book's teachings?

Yet, I am glad many Christian readers did. BUT this site, PLEASE GET THESE DESCRIPTIONS MORE ACCURATE. I LOST TIME AND MONEY.

Life Changing  Apr 23, 2005
I heard about this book at a time when I was being overwhelmed by the pain of my past. At first, I didn't think I had shame. But as I read this book for the second time, it changed my life.Through Jeff's honesty and compassion (having walked this road himself) I was finally able to feel that someone understood what was raging inside of me and he gave me permission to rest.......what I needed most He told me it was OK to feel what I was feeling...at last someone could identify what I couldn't seem to verbalize.
I have been and still am in therapy, but this book was a catalyst in my understanding of who I am, how I got this way, and how to get better. If you are struggling emotionally, even if you think that this book won't help you, take the chance. Don't deprive yourself of something that could be the best $10 you ever spent.......your emotional well being is priceless.
