Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author, speaker, and activist Christine Caine helps you overcome past guilt and live an unashamed life.

Shame can take on many forms. It hides in the shadows of the most successful, confident and high-achieving woman who struggles with balancing her work and children, as well as in the heart of the broken, abused and downtrodden woman who has been told that she will never amount to anything. Shame hides in plain sight and can hold us back in ways we do not realize. But Christine Caine wants listeners to know something: We can all be free.

"I know. I've been there," says Christine. "I was schooled in shame. It has been my constant companion from my very earliest memories. I see shame everywhere I look in the world, including in the church. It creeps from heart to heart, growing in shadowy places, feeding on itself so that those struggling with it are too shamed to seek help from shame itself."

In Unashamed, Christine reveals the often-hidden consequences of shame - in her own life and the lives of so many Christian women - and invites you to join her in moving from a shame-filled to a shame-free life.

In her passionate and candid style, Christine leads you into God's word, where you will see for yourself how to believe that God is bigger than your mistakes, your inadequacies, your past, and your limitations. He is not only more powerful than anything you've done but also stronger than anything ever done to you. You can deal with your yesterday today so that you can move on to what God has in store for you tomorrow - a powerful purpose and destiny he wants you to fulfill.

Join the journey. Lay ahold of the power of Jesus Christ today and step into the future - his future for you - a beautiful, full, life-giving future where you can even become a shame-lifter to others. Live unashamed!

Great book, boring narrated.

Christine Caine is such a dynamic speaker with a dynamic story! Too bad her wonderful story was saddled with such a flat-lined narration. Disappointing...

DISAPPOINTING

What did you like best about Unashamed? What did you like least?

The video's on the online bible study by Faithway.

What was most disappointing about Christine Caine’s story?

It's very simplistic approach. I expected more than the same clichéd stuff that has been floated throughout the Christian community for years. God doesn't waste a hurt, wilderness wandering, etc. This book needed more of Christine's personal stories. I felt like the book held the reader at arm's length.

Do you think Unashamed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. I think this book would be great for teen & pre-teen study groups. Adult women need a lot more.

Any additional comments?

I bought the audio. The study guide. Then did the online bible study. The best stuff was written by the gal leading the online study with Faithway. Her stories were great! I wish she had written the book.

Good supplement to other reading

It takes awhile to get to the good stuff but the last couple chapters are really quite profound. While I've learned a lot more about shame and vulnerability from Brene Brown, the biblical perspective added in this book makes all that learning so much deeper for me personally

A must read for everyone

This book is so well written on a subject everyone suffers from, but rarely discussed. Christine gives definition to shame then ways to overcome it. Then caution to realize it can snap back at any time. There is hope, healing and power within her God-given words. We can be giant slayers through God!

Life Changing!

Very good read on how to work everyday at overcoming the lives of the enemy! Shame is a lie of the enemy and we do not have to operate in that, God has redeemed us!

Truly Life Changing For Me

I personally recommend this book to every woman that steps foot on this planet whether she thinks she needs to read it or not. I was shockingly hooked within the first minute at how relevant it is to every woman. To say that Christine Caine was anointed during the writing of this book, is the understatement of the century.

In your head Awesome.

Holy sh*#, how is Christine in my head like that. This book is incredible. It's the most effective book on this subject. I will have to say it's life changing. Thank you Christine Caine.

I do wish Christine narrated the book her self, anyone who has experienced Christine knows the energy she brings. when I first started listening, I was thinking are you serious how slow the narrator is. But this is Audible, I increase the speed to 1.5 time and that worked out perfect.

A must read for everyone

Christine Caine at her best. I couldn't stop listening. It is powerful and makes me realize there is still a lot of shame that needs addressed in my life, lies if the enemy that I still believe. It revealed the source of attitudes and actions that I didn't understand in myself.
I have asked God to reveal all the hidden shame so that it can be exposed to the Light.
This is a must read. Although it is addressed to women, i believe men can benefit a great deal as well. Shame is not gender specific. It hits everyone.

Unimpressed

Firstly the narration is terrible imho. Her accent isn't the easiest on the ear and she speaks as if you have only just learned English; I had to increase the speed to x1.2 otherwise I would not have made it past chapter one.

The story is interesting to a point, but after a while it just seems like the book is covering old ground and could have been shorter.

I ended up playing the book at low volume after switching bedside light off and fell asleep on more than one occasion.

Is this one "Un...." book too many? I fear it might be.

Overcomer

Good book. I struggled to listen to the audio as the narrators voice made it a hard listen. However I managed to finish it.

Made me cry, loved it.

Made me cry, loved it, I think this is more for women however as a man I got a lot out of this. The testimonies about Christ was very powerful in the story. I believe this book can give a lot of people hope.
