Self-Esteem and a Journey of Faith

Robert R. Ball

$12.95 paperback

What do self-esteem and spiritual faith have to do with one another? For instance, how does a Christian upbringing affect self-esteem? Why are people flocking to self-esteem seminars the way they used to turn to churches?

Drawing on his experiences as a parent, pastor, and executive director of the California Task Force to Promote Self Esteem, Robert Ball examines such issues directly and honestly, and makes a major contribution by showing the role of faith in self-esteem.

"A well written and badly needed integration of the principles of the self-esteem 'movement' and Christian theology." - M. Scott Peck, M.D., The Road Less Traveled

"... must reading for anyone who wants to make their life work. Until you recognize your own dignity and worth you will be going through life 'with your brakes on.'" - Kenneth Blanchard, coauthor The One-Minute Manager

This book provides a detailed and substantial line of thought about how self-esteem is profoundly and necessarily dependent on a personal belief system. While acknowledging that love and faith are central themes in all great religions, this book looks at how the Christian tradition and humanistic psychology offer complementary insights about self-esteem.

"This is a generous and gentle book written by a generous and gentle man ... a gift of love filled with power and hope..." - Thomas A. Harris, M.D., Amy Bjork Harris, coauthors I'm OK - You're OK and Staying OK
