Product description

Review

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

Ed Welch is a good physician of the soul. This book is enlightening, convicting, and encouraging. I highly recommend it.--Jerry Bridges

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

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

Refreshingly biblical . . . brimming with helpful, readable, practical insight.--John MacArthur, President, The Master's University and Seminary
