Shame is not the same as guilt. I feel like that’s the biggest point you need to understand when continuing with Unashamed: Drop the Baggage, Pick up Your Freedom, Fulfill Your Destiny. I have heard Christine Caine speak but I have never read one of her books so I was excited to dig into this one.
Unashamed is really straight forward in its purpose, which is leaving our shame behind because that is what is holding us down. I think Christine did such an amazing job at describing what shame is and what it does in our life. I have never heard her whole story so hearing all the abuse she went through and the moments that defined her, it made me trust what she was saying.
The whole books deals with shame on how it distorts our life and perspectives. I love the way she explains it because it’s not in a condemning or awkward way, but in a way that we can acknowledged it and move forward. One of the most important things, I think, is the fact that she doesn’t push a rapid change and a quick mentality switch. I think a lot of the time people push rapid change and forgiveness and sometimes it doesn’t happen for people and it discourages people sometimes. So it was nice to read how it’s a process and one that we always have to work on when dealing with forgiveness or moving on from shame.
I received this book from BookLook for reviewing. All opinions are my own.
