HTH: When People Are Big and God is Small


The book that most helped me upon entering the youth pastorate at the church I’m currently serving was, When People Are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch. In the beginning of my ministry I struggled with “the fear of man,” as Welch puts it, and whether I would stack up to the previous youth pastor. This book, and the Biblical principles that it contains, literally changed my attitude with ministry. It also gave me a new understanding of the significance our students place on their reputations and how they compare to their peers.
