“Great book that separates the biblical view from the worldly hype over the issue of self esteem. Something every Pastor needs to read to help his sheep; something the faithful need to read in order to understand how God views them.”


“Biblically sound, straightforward and direct in challenging popular concept.”


“This is the best book I have ever read on the subject! If I could, I’d make it required reading for every young parent, teacher, youth worker, and any leader that has influence over how children are being reared. It’s not what you may think from the title–it’s the truth!”

The Biblical View of Self-Esteem, Self-Love, Self-Image


The Biblical View of Self-Esteem, Self-Love, and Self-Image

by Jay E. Adams

Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Familiar questions in our day and age.

But has our search for answers led us too far in the wrong direction: away from our true position in Christ and toward a dangerous emphasis on self?

Recent decades have seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Identified by labels such as “self-image,” “self-esteem,” “self-worth,” and “self-love,” this movement has one common denominator―the emphasis on self.

Regardless of religious persuasion, everyone seems to be fighting what they perceive to be a shared enemy: low self-esteem.

Now well-known biblical counselor and noted author Jay Adams brings much-needed clarification to the area of self-esteem and offers the church and every believer a truly biblical view of self.
