In his latest book, Shame Interrupted:
“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.”
