From the Back Cover:

It's an age-old problem. 'I do not understand my own actions', wrote St Paul. 'For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate'. Displaying a level of honesty that most of us would find difficult, he might as well have been speaking for the entire human race.

Yet it is easy to become sophisticated in disguising our less attractive, less acceptable selves, especially if we hold a position of leadership or trust.

This wise, honest and compassionate book explores the gap between professed belief and actual behaviour.
Examining the sources of our belief systems, it offers a practical guide to the process of healing, integration and growth and is an essential guide both to understanding ourselves and others.

"No pastoral worker can afford to ignore the questions raised in this book."
OLIVE AND JOHN DRANE
