Pleasing People: How Not to Be an "Approval Junkie" by Lou Priolo
About: Pleasing People.
Do you worry what other people think of you? Do you avoid conflicts rather than trying to resolve them? Are you afraid to share the gospel because you fear being criticized or rejected?
When we long for the approval of men over the approval of God, we are not only neglecting God but also replacing him with a cheap substitute. Our pride drives us to value our reputation, fear rejection, and ultimately forfeit the peace of God that comes from standing up and suffering for the truth.
Join Lou Priolo in discovering more about the ruthless master of pride and how to break its yoke by clothing yourself with the humility of Jesus Christ. Learn the dangers of being a people-pleaser, when it is good to please people, and how to be a God-pleaser.
"From his years of counseling experience, Lou Priolo has developed a work that exposes many of the prideful manifestations of people-pleasing, while also walking the reader through the biblical process of repentance from the heart. This is a book that God can use greatly to change lives."
"Lou Priolo has written an extremely biblical and practical book to help the 'people pleaser.' Even if you think you do not have this weakness, you may be convicted that you do! The strengths of this book are the biblical principles, its charts with wrong compared to right ways of thinking, and its counsel on how to become a 'God-pleaser.' I am very pleased to have this resource for helping people, and I highly endorse it."
"Lou has done a great job in unmasking the problem of people-pleasing and providing God’s solution to the problem. I commend this book to you because of its biblical and extremely practical nature. Buy it, read it, reread it, and use it in your counseling and teaching."
