“'Needing people less and loving them more.' This is the challenge that the author offers us… He evokes the tendency that we have to fear others, to let ourselves be controlled and mastered by them, to depend on them for those things that only God can give us… [Welch ] offers an antidote: the fear of God… the believer's response to the power, majesty and, not least, the mercy of God. »

“Biblical and practical. The reader does not necessarily need to be pressured by peers or be emotionally dependent to benefit from this work. This book opens our eyes and redirects us to God and his Word in order to overcome the fear of men. »
- The Baptist Bulletin

"Our generation really needs a book like this. Nice to read, it can be used very well in Sunday school or for a home Bible study. Here is a work that should be found in every church library and book table. The topic discussed is current. The solution he presents is biblical. »

Vraiment bon livre,

Si l’approbation des autres et remplir leurs besoins sont importants ou prennent trop de place dans votre vie comparé à celle de Dieu, ce livre est pour vous.
Dieu qui nous aime, est miséricordieux et plein de bonté pour nous. Il veut la première place dans notre vie et avec raison. Ce livre remet en perspective la première place que Dieu doit avoir dans notre vie. Je relirais ce livre et en ferait cadeau à d’autres. Vraiment, il est très bon!
