I started this blog in 2013 as part of a personal search for answers on some difficult situations I was facing while working in a tough corner of the world. My purpose in doing the blog was two-fold. First, going public would force me to keep at it and continue to dig until I got to the real bottom of things. Second, I have always had the view that the Bible speaks to literally everything (2 Timothy 3:16), and wanted to use this subject to demonstrate that to others.
While this blog is certainly not the most popular blog on the subject of narcissism, there has been enough positive feedback to encourage me to continue chipping away at it.
Writing blog posts came (kind of) easily when I was working on Biblical descriptions. When I got to the “why’s” and “solutions”, the answers became more difficult to discuss in short blog posts. As a result, I decided to swallow hard and attempt to put the entire picture together from A to Z all at one time.
We are pre-announcing the release of a book “The First Will Be Last: A Biblical Perspective On Narcissism”. It should be available in the next couple of months.
What are the differences between the book and this blog? In addition to more clearly and succinctly explaining the topics of the current blog threads, the book “looks ahead” with a much deeper in-depth look at causes and solutions – with an eye toward greater hope and help to those who suffer.
If you would like to be notified when the book becomes available, please submit your email address and we will let you know.
P.S. I intend to keep working away at this blog, so eventually the various elements of the book should find their way here.
