Review & Giveaway! Unashamed: Healing Our Brokenness and Finding Freedom from Shame by Heather Davis Nelson



About the book:
Shame is everywhere.

Whether it's related to relationships, body image, work difficulties, or a secret sin, we all experience shame at some point in our lives. While shame can manifest itself in different ways—fear, regret, and anger—it ultimately points us to our most fundamental need as human beings: redemption.

Shame never disappears in solitude, and Heather Davis Nelson invites us to not only be healed of our own shame but also be a part of healing for others. She shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, giving us courage us to walk out of shame’s shadows and offering hope for our bondage to brokenness. Through the gospel, we discover the only real and lasting antidote to shame: exchanging our shame for the righteousness of Christ alongside others on this same journey.

My thoughts:

Unashamed was a very good read. I liked how it went over all different types of areas in life where you might feel shame (i.e. marriage, parenting, body image, etc.). While the topic was deep, it wasn't hard to read and was a quick non-fiction read at just 192 pages including all the extras at the back of the book.

Unashamed was definitely thought-provoking and there were a couple quotes I felt like highlighting - they were just so good! I felt like the author made a lot of good points. Also, the way the book was written was so personable/friendly and I really liked that.

All in all, Unashamed was a really good read. I recommend it if the subject is of interest to you, as I thought it was great.
