Wanted: A Cure for Shame that Works

You can’t bury it beneath big accomplishments, dress it up with fancy clothes or drive it away in a shiny car. Shame always seems to lurk just beneath the surface—beyond the reach of all the superficial remedies we’ve tried.

PRLog - May 21, 2012 - Time doesn’t help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others have done to us as it is from what we have done ourselves. Worthlessness, inferiority, rejection, weakness, humiliation, failure...it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide.

In his latest book, Shame Interrupted: How God Lifts the Pain of Worthlessness and Rejection (New Growth Press, May 2012),well-known and respected psychologist Edward T. Welch guides readers on a journey through Scripture to discover the one enduring remedy for shame: the blood of Christ. By bringing shame into the light, where it can be addressed by the Bible, Welch helps readers to understand and receive the acceptance of God in Christ and experience the relief that comes with freedom from shame.

“Shame controls far too many of us,” writes Welch. “But the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God’s beautiful words break through. Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalized and worthless are His favorites and become His people. We can learn to think differently and to live differently in the world that Christ purchased for us—a world where shame no longer controls our identity and relationships.”

Edward T. Welch, M.Div., Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and faculty member at the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF). He has counseled for thirty years and is the best-selling author of many books, including When People Are Big and God Is Small; Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave; Blame It on the Brain?; Depression: A Stubborn Darkness; Crossroads: A Step-by-Step Guide Away from Addiction; Running Scared: Fear, Worry and the God of Rest; and When I Am Afraid: A Step-by-Step Guide Away from Fear and Anxiety. He and his wife Sheri have two daughters, two sons-in-law and four grandchildren.
