“Ed Welch is a good physician of the soul. This book is enlightening, convicting, and encouraging. I highly recommend it.”
– Jerry Bridges, author, Trusting God Even When Life Hurts
“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, author, Heirs of the Covenant
“... refreshingly biblical.... brimming with helpful, readable, practical insight.”
– John F. MacArthur Jr.
“Much needed in our own day. User fiendly 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
“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
“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.... proposes an antidote: the fear of God ... the believer's response to God's power, majesty and not least his mercy.”
