Who told you you weren’t good enough?

January 31, 2018

Author Bill Combs believes deep down every person feels inadequate—what he calls 'naked'. “Even if you clothe yourself with everything the world can offer in an attempt to be complete and fulfilled, you will always find circumstances that undercut your confidence, leaving you feeling vulnerable and naked,” Combs said.

Combs takes readers back to the life of Adam and Eve in the garden, as he explores this feeling of being incomplete and vulnerable to find fresh ways of looking at who we are - in his book, Who Told You That You Were Naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden.
