5.0 out of 5 stars A Life Changing Book Aug. 2 2001
By Tim Orr
Several years ago when I first read this book it truly change my life. It taught me that I could experience freedom in Christ. This book lays out the four basic lies that the enemy tries to get us to believe.
(1) Performane trap - I must meet certain standards in order to feel good about myself.
(2) Approval Addict - I must be approved by certain others to feel good about myself.
(3) Blame game - Those who fail are unworthy to be loved and deserve to be punished.
(4) Shame- I am what I am. I cannot change. I am hopeless.
Dr. McGee not only gives us the four basic lies, but he also lays out for the believer how one is to combat those lies.
It you want to find true liberty in Christ, this book is definitely for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most liberating books I've read Feb. 13 2012
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Search for Significance explores the consequences of believing the false self-worth equation of Self-Worth = Performance + Others' Opinions.

Through practical biblical teaching and illustrated by case studies, author Robert S. McGee aims to teach readers that "'Our true value is based not on our behaviour or the approval of others but on what God's Word says is true of us."' (p. 19)

This is one of the most liberating books I've read in a long time. My copy is filled with sticky notes highlighting key passages. I have the revised and expanded book and workbook in one volume, a 337-page trade paperback. The first half is the teaching, and the second has questions for reflection and/or discussion to complement each chapter.

Robert McGee has extensive background in counselling, and he's quick to clarify that the book's scope doesn't include problems or disorders tied to physiological issues, which require extra help. Many of us, however, will benefit from a prayerful reading and even from taking this journey in company with a trusted friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT HELPS YOU SORT YOURSELF OUT!!!, June 29 2006
This is my first book by Robert S McGee and it would not be my last.

In the Search for Significance Mr. McGee deals with emotional struggles which we go through from time to time and gives us a coping mechanism for handling these burdensome problems. As a result of trusting God we see the many wonderful things that can happen. The writer expounds on Self worth,

Performance, Others opinions of us, and False beliefs of ourselves which we just allow to live within us. He introduces us also to

The Performance Trap

The Approval Addict

The Blame Game and


All of these are answered through God's truth in the Bible and brings us back to healthy living along with repentance and obedience. It shows how much God cares for us and how totally he accepts us. We have not only been forgiven of our sins but we have received God's righteousness and made heirs with him.

There are a lot of people out there who would not know they need this type of book until they start to read the back cover. Trust me,it is for you as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars God's Love For Us Is Amazing! March 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This life changing book is a must read for any Christ follower at any stage of life. However, it is most valuable for those of us who have a head knowledge of the love of God, but didn't really realize that we did not have a heart knowledge of the depth of God's love no matter what we have done in the past.Sometimes the hardest thing to do in life is to forgive yourself and let God love you the way He desires and seeks after us. The author, Robert McGee sends the reader through a very Biblical and methodical look at Satan's lies that keep us in bondage that we must work to get God's acceptance and approval even if we have faith in God. The workbook and personality quizes are interactive and thorough. This book is very encouraging!

I went through a difficult time spiritually and emotionally a few years ago and this book, in many ways saved my life. It gave me a new vision of myself seen through God's eyes. The author is very gentle and humane in his treatment of those with emotional disorders. I highly recommend this life-changing book!

4.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing book Aug. 14 2003
This was a very intriguing book. In it McGee states that the hear of most human problems is that we have forsaken the truth of God and have believed the lie of Satan. Satan's lie is this: Self worth = Performance + Other's Opinion. People experience four basic problems as a result of believing this lie: the performance trap, the approval addict, the blame game and shame. The author looks at the consequences of each behavior and gives God's answer. His underlying assumption is that biblical truth meets the most basic issue of our live- our goals, motives and sense of worth.
This book has a strong biblical foundation in that the author finds the solution to man's problems in the Word of God. I especially appreciate that he addresses the time element involved counseling. Problems develop over years and solutions to them may take years. His advice to pastors is to be patient when counseling those who are hurting- healing takes time. The essence of healing is to discover the false beliefs and assumptions that Satan has deceived us with and replace them with God's truth. In this he is very similar to Larry Crabb in that truth is the ultimate cure for wrong thinking. Wrong thinking is the cause of bad emotions. Chapter three, however, is pretty basic stuff. It is hoped that we do not have to go through the plan of salvation. Despite the slow start, the book improved towards the end.
