Shame Interrupted is not only the book on understanding and addressing shame from a Christian perspective, it is a classic example of how any author can trace a biblical “concept” of a “life issue” and share Christ-centered insights for living.
I just returned from five days at the 2012 CCEF National Conference on Guilt and Shame. Two phrases sum up the entire week for me: robust content and relational connection. Interestingly, those same two phrases summarize for me the nature of truly biblical counseling: robust content and relational connection.
In Shame Interrupted, Ed Welch shines the light of the gospel into the dark abyss of shame. Because of Welch’s candid perspective, Shame Interrupted was at first hard to read, then hard to put down, and now easy to recommend.
