“Christine Caine is the most transparent and vulnerable she’s ever been in any other book,” said Sandy Vander Zicht, associate publisher. “Her powerful and compelling story of overcoming shame has helped thousands of women move past their own shame.”

One of three books titled Unashamed that released in early 2016, Christianity Today and Publishers Weekly wrote trend stories noting the importance of the topic. Unashamed launched with a Propel Women book club, with 9,000 active members and also the support of Lysa TerKeurst who endorsed the book saying, “Her raw honesty and unwavering belief in God’s good plan is the refreshing encouragement your soul needs!”

Caine is the cofounder of the global anti-human trafficking organization, The A21 Campaign and founder of Propel Women, an organization dedicated to empowering women to lead. Caine shares how she took shame head-on in order to fulfill her destiny in her book and encouraged readers to take action by leaving behind whatever it is that’s holding them back.
