The message of self-help-- that you can be like God- that you have a right to everything you ever wanted, and that you deserve it too-- sounds like a dream come true. Until you get past the fac ade and see it for what it is. Until you recognize thatMoreThe message of self-help-- that you can be like God- that you have a right to everything you ever wanted, and that you deserve it too-- sounds like a dream come true. Until you get past the fac ade and see it for what it is. Until you recognize that its really the same errant promise Satan tempted Eve with in the Garden of Eden.

Today Edens serpent has taken a new form-- masquerading behind attractive ideas like self-help, recovery, personal fulfillment, self-esteem, success, achievement. But its 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 Stephanie Forbes points out, we must resist it, especially within the church.

Why? 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.This popularly written book details what self-help is, unveils its falsehoods and illusions, exposes its dangers, and analyzes how it affects our thinking and opposes our faith. It also gives you suggestions for evaluating self-help materials from a biblical perspective, and ideas for avoiding and refuting the lies altogether-- tools youll need for discerning the Truth so that you can keep from getting caught up in Satans oldest scheme.
