|I Told Me So: The Role of Self-Deception in Christian Living
By Gregg A. Ten Elshof / Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.
Think you’ve ever deceived yourself? Then this book is for you.Think you’ve never deceived yourself? Then this book is really for you.Scripture is peppered with talk of self-deception and its poisonous effects on the pursuit of holy living. Christians in the past thought long and hard about the ways we deceive ourselves. They called on self-deception to explain a wide range of problems in Christian experience. Strangely, though, self-deception has all but disappeared from our consciousness today. We rarely admit to the possibility of deceiving ourselves in any area of our lives.In I Told Me So Gregg Ten Elshof reintroduces readers to self-deception and offers an explanation for its recent neglect in Christian thought. He describes conditions that tempt us to deceive ourselves and points out where they exist in contemporary Christian life. He explains the most successful strategies we use in self-deception and offers practical advice on how to confront and eliminate them. But readers will be surprised to discover that self-deception isn’t always such a bad thing. Ten Elshof shows how sometimes it can even be a useful, God-given gift.Honest and incisive, consistently wise and frequently funny, I Told Me So So offers fresh insights on how we deceive ourselves and smart strategies to combat the deceiver in all of us.
