EDWARD T WELCH
Overly concerned about what people think of you?
All experiences of the fear of man share at least one common feature: people are big. They have grown to idolatrous proportions in our lives. They control us. Since there is no room in our hearts to worship both God and people, whenever people are big, God is not. Therefore the first task in escaping the snare of the fear of man is to know that God is awesome and glorious, not other people.
Welch uncovers the spiritual dimension of people-pleasing and points the way through a true knowledge of God, ourselves, and others.
“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 tables 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.”
“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.”
