Product Description

"In God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?" So sings the Psalmist. But quote that to a crime victim or a junior high student and they'll tell you fear of "mortal men" can prove a formidable obstacle! Here Welch offers biblical insight and solutions for a pervasive weakness in today's church. 239 pages, softcover from P&R.

Editorial Reviews

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.
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.
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.
Refreshingly biblical . . . brimming with helpful, readable, practical insight.
Ed Welch is a good physician of the soul. This book is enlightening, convicting, and encouraging. I highly recommend it.

    It really is true, we place so much importance on what everyone else thinks instead of focusing on what god thinks.

    For me the book started out so great, I could identify with so many things he was saying. I couldn't put it down, but halfway through I got a little lost and it was difficult sometimes to keep up. It became more biblical and less personal, I liked his personal stories, that is how I could connect in my own life. The bibilical references were great also but it got overwhelming at times to stay connected. Overall it was a great book and it has made me more self aware of where I place my priorities.

    A terrific book that enables one to start to challenge the thoughts behind our "needs" and see them in a new and different light. Realizing any need we have fulfilled, needs to be for a bigger picture of being a imitator of God, and turning it all around for God's glory.

    I really appreciate how the book enables you to think outside the box, and brings to light the power we give to people who are unable of giving us what we want or need. How to let God's love fill us to then give it to others and bring Him glory.

    This book is gentle, practical and Biblical. It's obvious that the author has dealt with personal fears.

    Amazing book, applicable to every relationship. The more we apply the principles in this book to our lives, the closer we will be to God and the less vulnerable we will be to destructive people. We are able to love others better while keeping good boundaries.
