A Book I can Highly Recommend

Deceived by Shame, Desired by God

by Cynthia Spell Humbert

Published by NavPress Publishing
2001 ISBN: 1576832198

With stories from her clientele as a Christian counselor, Cynthia Spell Humbert shows how many of the problems women face today come from shame. It is a consequence of sin, which began in Eden, and leads us to fear God and hide from Him. Yet to face our sin, and accept God's overtures to restore fellowship with us is the very answer to ridding us of shame.

In this book, Humbert explores various types of shame, introduces a woman who was deceived by it, and shows the way to be set free of it. These include churches that do not accept people as they are, addictions, broken sexual boundaries, abortion, body image and divorce damage.

I was glad for her emphasis on the value God places on women, and His plan of grace and ways to build up a legacy of glory. It is possible to make new beginnings and to finish well.

Correlated questions for each chapter are at the back of the book, making this suitable for 12 week ladies Bible study group, or to use privately. May it liberate many women from their shame.
