THE BIG EGO TRIP Finding true significance in a culture of self-esteem

THE BIG EGO TRIP Finding true significance in a culture of self-esteem
This provocative book argues that self-esteem ideology has led us down a psychological cul-de-sac that causes more harm than good. Healthy development and real fulfilment come from seeing the self as part of something bigger. The Christian gospel calls us beyond the goal of self-esteem to take part in God's big story and the pursuit of his glory.

After decades of trying to feel good about ourselves, why do we still hunger for meaning and significance? In this provocative book, Glynn Harrison argues that self-esteem ideology has led us down a psychological cul-de-sac that causes more harm than good, and todays culture of narcissism and entitlement is the pay-off. Healthy psychological development and fulfilment come from seeing the self as part of something bigger. To achieve the sense of significance that we long for, we need a worldview capable of generating meaning and purpose. The Christian gospel calls us beyond the goal of self-esteem, encouraging us to stop judging ourselves, embrace our identity in Gods big story and look outwards to the pursuit of his glory. This is the only sure foundation for biblically based optimism, confidence and personal resilience.
