Shame severs our relationship from God. It is so powerful that it often results in denial, apathy, and even a self-defensive wrath toward neighbor. At the same time, shame may drive us to discover the true source of our dignity beyond our isolated and broken self. The arc of the biblical narrative takes us from the fig leaves of Adam and Eve, who desire to hide from God and each other, to the liberation from self-consciousness that Jesus displays at the Last Supper, which can be seen as 'undoing' the shame of Adam and Eve.
For many, shame is the experience that can bring us as close as we will come to the experience of the Cross—the place of simultaneous condemnation and liberation. In Without Shame or Fear, A. Robert Hirschfield examines biblical, public, and personal stories and shame and being shamed, delving into this emotional and spiritual phenomenon in order to mine what shame has to teach us all.
