In this book Helen Jamieson looks at twelve masks that people wear to cover up their true self: wellness, honesty, perfection, strength, busyness and productivity, devotion, patience, gentleness and sweetness, satisfaction and happiness, optimism, sociability, sincerity and righteousness. Each of these is a cover for the opposite as we pretend to be better than we really are. The focus is on freeing ourselves from these masks and living in the reality of Christ Jesus. This book presupposes that the reader is a Christian as the method depends on it. She uses a lot of examples from her own life and family to make the points. It is a very personal book while at the same time being broad enough to apply to a multitude of people in different life situations.

At the end of the book she has two chapters on what will happen to those who undertake this process: they will find themselves at war and they need to put on the armour of God. This is followed by a study guide with questions related to each chapter that can be used for personal reflection, or as recommended, in a small group offering support.

This book often interacts with medical and psychological terminology and although Jamieson is not trained in these areas she provides ample explanations and an appendix of medical terminology. Furthermore, Her health problems allow her to speak from experience. She has well covered the spiritual aspects of life and the spiritual ramifications of wearing masks; pretending to be someone we are not. I would recommend this book. ( )
