One of the most surprising miracles I've experienced as a result of working through this book has been an awakening to what I can only describe as the simple joy of childhood. After decades of living in survival mode, I was completely taken off guard when I started experiencing things like studying -- really studying -- a caterpillar. Or stopping mid-walk to mingle with the family of ducks in our neighborhood pond. Or collecting sea shells for hours at a time with my daughter. Or reveling in a good, long belly laugh over something that at one time would have irritated me. It's a gift I now want to share with everyone. And it's the reason I keep a box full of copies of this book in the trunk of my car and would highly recommend it for a small group study. Praise be to God for the Basels and the principles of this book that saved my life, allowed me to eventually forgive and accept myself and others, and gradually allowed me the grace of receiving true beauty, life and joy for my ashes! Something I would never have dreamed possible for someone like me. Jerry and Denise tenderly and lovingly show us that Jesus calls us to come joyfully and fully alive ... and we do so by revisiting our childhood wounds with his loving presence to guide us and hold us in our fear. The book serves as a tool to help us on this journey of our lives. . . Using the Scriptures, their extensive experience in counseling and their own journeys as its foundation, this book is a compilation of years of Holy Spirit-led techniques for guiding believers toward wholeness, no matter how ugly their past. . . . Destined to become a Christian self help classic, The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself is a monumental step toward bringing the healing light of God's love into the dark crevices of the human heart, thereby allowing us once and for all to dispel the lie that we are unworthy of loving ourselves. . . . That is the freedom Jesus spoke of so eloquently, and it is the core message of this book. Highly, highly recommend! --Amazon.com
I am a licensed mental health counselor in Washington State. This is by far one of the best books I have read in my field. Dozens of my clients have also read the book and have stated that it really helped them to understand shame and how it has negatively impacted their lives. It also explains defense mechanisms very well. So many of us live our lives not loving ourselves. This book brings home the message that God loves us, therefore we can love our self no matter what we have done. Many have read and re-read it. I have personally known the Basel's for 22 years. They live the stuff they are teaching and they have impacted my life in many ways but if I had to pick one main way they have changed my life, its understanding that the Father loves me. So I was not surprised when I saw the title of their book! May God bless the Basels for their faithfulness to Christ and their love for others.

When I read this book, I made five pages of notes on what impacted me. The whole section on mother wounds took me from being a reading team member into my own issues and I forgot I was supposed to be reading for feedback purposes. I will tell others Buy this book!! It will bring you the freedom you have been looking for your whole life. I would tell them that it is radical in that it teaches how God feels about us, rather than how we THINK he feels about us. It shares the truth that has been forgotten over time and in teaching. Loving yourself is not selfish! I think anyone who is seeking to be whole would benefit from this book. Even the lost. However, I think the target market would be Christians who have been in the church for years and still feel something is not working. Those who have brokenness in their lives and cannot find an explanation. Those with genuine hearts who have been striving to meet God s approval and earn his love. Anyone who sees himself or herself as less than. I love this book! I have walked this road with Jerry and Denise, and taken what I learned to continue my journey in my own life. It truly set me free to know I mean really know that God loves me and that I am worth loving. I have been accused of being stubborn I prefer tenacious and those words describe my hard headedness. This teaching broke through my hard head, and melted my heart. --Author's Publication Website
