Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? There are familiar questions in our day and age. But has our search for answers led us too far from the true biblical position of self? The last 15 years has seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Easily identified by labels such as "self-image", "self-esteem", "self-worth", and "self-love", this movement has one common denominator--the emphasis on self. Now well-known biblical counselor and noted author Jay Adams brings much-needed clarification to the area of self-esteem and offers the church and every believer a truly biblical view of self.

Review 1 for The Biblical View of Self-Esteem
Date:November 5, 2007
A fantastic, must-read on a controversial subject. A search tonight on CBD showed 58 books on self-esteem for the Christian, most about how to get MORE self esteem. Jay Adams does a brilliant job of handling the scriptures, and shows the fallacy of SELF-esteem, instead, drawing a pattern for GOD-esteem. This book's strong points are its use of scripture and its application. An enjoyable, though convicting read, this is definitely one that won't gather dust on the bookshelf. A MUST have tool for those in truly BIBLICAL counseling. A warning: this book will offend those with the false notion that the scriptures and psychology are somehow compatible. (But if you are the type of person who thinks that, you should read it anyway. It'll challenge you, and that's good for all of us.)
