OVERVIEW

Christine Caine has lived her entire life in shame: shame which sprouted from her heritage, her history as an abuse victim, her deviance from strict gender roles, and her constant desire to prove her worth. In Unashamed, Caine explores the steps she has taken toward becoming healed with God by her side. Through scriptural references and personal anecdotes, Caine humbly encourages other women to join her on the quest to silencing the voice of shame.

Caine emphasizes that recovery from any struggle is not an overnight process. But though the journey through the wilderness is perilous, the escape from slavery into the sanctuary of the Promised Land is worth the trek. Caine humbly admits to her own continual struggle, yet still encourages women to take heart in the knowledge that God will never abandon them. Using personal illustrations, lessons from scripture, references to psychological research, and experiences with answered prayers, she reveals a pattern for finding wholeness in a new and righteous way of life.
