Overly concerned about what people think of you? Welch uncovers the spiritual dimension of people-pleasing and points the way through a true knowledge of God, ourselves, and others.
" Need people less. Love people more. That's the author's challenge....He's talking about a tendency to hold other people in awe, to be controlled and mastered by them, to depend on them for what God alone can give....(Welch) proposes an antidote: the fear of God...the believer's response to God's power, majesty and not least his mercy."---Dallas Morning News
" Biblical and practical. The reader does not need a problem with peer pressure or codependency to profit from this book. Opens our eyes and directs us back to God and his Word to overcome the fear of man. "----The Baptist Bulletin
" Much needed in our own day. User friendly as a resource for Sunday School or home Bible study. Here is a volume that church libraries and book tales ought to have. Its theme is contemporary. Its answer is thoroughly biblical. "----The Presbyterian Witness
" ...refreshingly biblical....brimming with helpful, readable, practical insight. "----John F. MacArthur Jr.
" Ed Welch is a good physician of the soul. This book is enlightening, convicting, and encouraging. I highly recommend it. "----Jerry Bridges
" Readable and refreshing....goes to the heart of an issue immobilizing the church. Exposes and repudiates the trivia of therapeutic theology with wisdom and compassion. "---Susan Hunt
