|In this book on Christian self-image, Blaine Smith
stresses the importance of cherishing your personal distinctiveness
– as a gift of God, and a vital indication of what he wants you to
do with your life. And he looks carefully at what this means. He
considers how self-esteem and humility should fit together for the
Christian. And he gives you solid biblical reasons to view your
personality, talents and gifts, physical features, and special
circumstances positively and appreciatively. His accent is on
encouragement and re-inventing the way you see yourself as a child of

Ralph T. Mattson, author of Finding a Job That You Can Love, comments:
“More people are likely to be blunted in their growth by poor perceptions of their individual worth than by inflated egos. Innumerable Christians have embarked on their life's calling with profound misunderstanding of their uniqueness and self-worth, thereby missing many of the delights of full-orbed Christian living.
“One of a Kind" is a welcome corrective. It encourages us to abandon self-depreciation for a realistic biblical view of ourselves without false positivism. In dealing with the subjects of humility, self-esteem, ideals, body image, and personality, Blaine Smith covers the most commonly expressed concerns people are likely to have about themselves.” From a review in Eternity Magazine, January 1985
“This is an excellent booster book for Christians with a bad self-image or defeating feelings of mediocrity and rejection. The coverage of acceptance of our bodies, talents and gifts is equally refreshing.” Christian Bookseller, August 1984
