With Unveiled Face Pb

Full Product Description

With Unveiled Face offers an exploration of the concept of shame in today’s culture, and how its negative effects can be countered both pastorally and theologically. While some forms of shame are appropriate, indeed essential, for successful functioning in society, shame can also become a destructive, imprisoning condition which controls our ability to be true to ourselves. The person experiencing acute shame wants to hide away, or at least to hide their face. If these feelings become chronic, they can lead to self-destructive behaviours, self-harming and even suicide. Our propensity to feel shame leaves us open to exploitation for the purposes of power and control. And whereas guilt will be felt by the perpetrator, shame is also felt by the innocent, indeed it can spread and infect whole communities. Here Paul Goodliff explores shame in all these guises. Using analyses of scripture and myth alongside theological and psychological insights, he contends that there is a need to both reinforce the protective purposes of shame, while finding ways of healing destructive shame. With Unveiled Face will be invaluable for all those working or studying in the fields of pastoral care and counselling, as well as anyone seeking a better of understanding of this debilitating condition and its effects. PAUL GOODLIFF is Head of the Department of Ministry for the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
