In The Big Ego Trip, psychiatrist Glynn Harrison takes aim at one of Western society's most entrenched ideologies: self-esteem. He charts the rise of this ubiquitous value, arguing that the 'science' underlying it is flawed, that there is little evidence efforts to promote self-esteem work, and that, in its popular form of 'boosterism,' self-esteem promotion comes with hazardous and unwanted side effects. Furthermore, he explores whether there is a more biblically and psychologically secure approach to big questions of significance and worth.
You will be intrigued, challenged, and quite possibly freed by Dr. Harrison's conclusion: Compared with the failed ideology of self-esteem, the gospel offers the ultimate 'bigger-than-your-ego' trip.
