About Shame Off You

Shame Off You book cover via Amazon

Learn to recognize and process feelings of shame in a biblical way to restore God-ordained self-worth and hope.

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” — Romans 8:1 

Shame is an assault on the core of who we are. It assassinates our character, minimizes our worth, and dashes our hope. Like Adam and Eve, we often hide shame, but hiding never heals it. Left unattended, shame can develop into a crippling reality that paralyzes us. Like an infectious disease, shame impacts everyone . . . but not all shame is bad.

Shame can either be an oppressive and powerful tool of worldly condemnation or a source of conviction that God uses to bring his people back to himself. Having the discernment to know the difference and recognize shame in its many forms can change the course of one’s life.

In a transparently honest style, Pass shares of her experience dealing with shame after learning that her former husband was a sexual offender. Having lived through the aftermath, she leads you into God’s Word where you will see for yourself that God is bigger than your pain, shame, mistakes, and limitations.

Shame Off You shares how freedom can be found in choosing to break the cycle of shame by learning from the past, developing healthy thinking patterns, silencing lies, and overcoming the traps of vanity and other people’s opinions.

My Review

Oh boy.

I had no idea who Denise Pass was before picking up this book. And, frankly, I wondered what story she had that prompted her writing it.

The answer came almost immediately. And it wasn’t what I expected…it was worse.

She knows, folks. Pass knows about shame. She lived it. She saw it. And she came to know the all-powerful, all-redeeming love of Jesus Christ amidst and in spite of it.

If you think your shame is too much, too big, for God to forgive, redeem, work through, or something else, read this book. (With a Bible next to you too. And maybe some Kleenex and a journal.)

Beautifully written and heartbreakingly real and raw, Shame Off You challenges readers to take a deep dive into God’s love and go “further up, and further in” (to quote C.S. Lewis). Each chapter includes a devotional and questions to prompt further reflection. A 25-page reference guide at the end provides helpful topical resources and corresponding Bible verses.

I’ll definitely revisit this book in years to come. I so appreciate having the hard copy (over an ebook — much as I love mah ebooks!) — so I can either reread straight through, or flip through the resources at the end.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
