"This is not just one more "christianized" self help book on self-esteem. Beginning with God's design in our creation as divine imagebearers, it diagnoses the full gamut of spiritual and emotional factors which deface that image and produce a sense of worthlessness and low self-esteem. Best of all it contains the divine prescription - practical suggestions for restoring it so we can stand tall as God's redeemed children. It is the integration of Scripture and psychology at its best."
David Seamands, Pastor, Counselor and Author
"A landmark book on self-esteem and the Christian life. Important reading for anyone wanting to improve his/her sense of self-worth from a Christian perspective. Easy reading, though provoking, practical and encouraging. Reading it would be a significant step toward building a healthier and happier marriage and family."
H Norman Wright, Christian Marriage Enrichment
"Rarely does a book come along that has within it the power to transform lives... This book doesn't talk about fixing up the external you - instead the focus is upon allowing the Holy Spirit to take the information and apply it to your heart, changing you from the inside out. I believe that there is a special anointing on this book that enables the reader to leave the past behind and embrace the full liberty of becoming more like Christ. We began using Dr. Day's book as a textbook for our Discipleship classes in 1996, I have been privileged to watch year after year as lives have been transformed by its teaching."
Cheryl L. Harper, Dean of Students, Capital Bible College, Sacramento, California
