Peer pressure, codependency, shame, low self-esteem--these are just some of the words used to identify how people are controlled by others' opinions. Why is it so important to be liked? Why is rejection so traumatic? Edward T. Welch's insightful, biblical answers to these questions show that freedom from others' opinions and genuine, loving relationships grow as we learn about ourselves, others, and God. This interactive book includes questions for individual or group study and is suitable for teenagers and young adults.
In this book, Ed Welch reminds us in a profound - yet incredibly readable - way of the core truths of the gospel, and our identity in Christ. We're reminded of the wrong ways we view ourselves, God, and those around us, leading to a need to compare, to match up, to fit in, and to stand out. Then we're shown who we really are, who God really is, and how we can enjoy relating to and loving those around us. I love the conversational style of the book, with copious opportunities for personal reflection, and space to take notes throughout. This book is a great read whether you're satisfied with life or feeling discontent. It's aimed at a younger audience, and I'd heartily recommend it to anybody aged (roughly) 16-35.
If you worry what other people think of you, then this book will be very helpful. Welch shows that fear of other people is actually driven by loving ourselves more than God. In fact we want to make ourselves God. Welch then takes that to show us that we all need a Saviour. Knowing God through Jesus Christ means that we are less dependant on other's opinions and we are freed to love them. The book is aimed at teenagers and young adults, but it's message is very relevant for older people as well.
