When People are Big and God is Small... Jan 10, 2007
Loved this book, it really helped me to overcome the fear of man, and keep my focus on the Lord.
An excellent eye opener Oct 18, 2006
We are reading this book in a small group, and there is so much discussion chapter after chapter. A new way to look at the fear of man and is very eye opening. Be prepared to look inward and be ready to change! Would totally recommend.
A book everyone should read Oct 16, 2006
Welch's book hits on a sore spot. Fear of man is a universal problem. This book convicts people-pleasers, victimized people, and everyone else who lets something other than God control their thoughts, emotions, words and actions. The book gives an indepth look at the meaning of the fear of God. It provides plenty of contemporary and Biblical stories to demonstrate fear of man and fear of God at work in people's lives. It is thoroughly Biblical, always returning to Scripture to back up the main points (and the sub-points). Best of all, it is encouraging. God's love is stressed throughout the book. God is to be feared and obeyed. Man's duty is to glorify God and love another. Once man's desire cup is smashed and reveals the "I need Jesus" cup, then man can be filled with God's love. In fact, His love overflows, and we share it with another.
A Biblical Theology of Dependence Jul 11, 2006
Ed Welch has penned a thoroughly biblical theology of dependence (upon God), interdependence (with God's people), and co-dependence (diagnosing the true cause and prescribing the true cure for co-dependence). It is books like "When People Are Big and God Is Small" that are revolutionizing Christian counseling by providing a practical, relevant, biblical psychology of specific issues and concerns in our post-modern world.
Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," "Biblical Psychology," "Martin Luther's Pastoral Counseling," and "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
Good Information Sep 20, 2005
The first 2 chapters have helped me, more than I would've ever imagined. I'm on chapter 7 now, and I have a much clearer understanding about my own actions, as well as the actions of others. A very important book. A must read.
