Review:

Today Eden's serpent has taken a new form, masquerading behind attractive ideas like self-help, recovery, personal fulfillment, self-esteem, success, achievement. But it's the same old serpent and the same old lie. And judging from the incredible popularity of self-help books, audio and video tapes, and workshops, we have the same old response. But as author Stephan Forbes points out, we must resist it, especially within the church, because the half-truths of the self-help movement are infiltrating our lives and diverting our attention away from God and onto ourselves. They are making us more concerned with psychological recovery than with redemption from sin. With self-fulfillment than with self-sacrifice. With remaking God to fit our needs than with allowing Him to remake us to fit His plan. Help Your Self details what self-help is, unveils its falsehoods and illusions, exposes its dangers, and analyzes how it affects our thinking and opposes our faith. Help Your Self also gives the reader suggestions for evaluating self-help materials from a biblical perspective, and ideas for avoiding and refuting the lies altogether. Articulate, insightful, informative, Help Your Self is "must" reading for anyone caught up in the modern self-help, self-improvement fads of today. -- Midwest Book Review
