Highlighted Equipping Resource - Pleasing People


We want to continue to highlight books that have been placed on the shelves in the welcome center that are available to you. These are resources we would like to highlight to the congregation for a period of time. These resources will change about 3 times a year to highlight a new set of titles we think will be edifying.

The purpose of highlighting these resources is simply to put biblically solid, Christ-exalting, affection-fueling resources in the hands of the members of Summit Woods for their personal growth in the Lord, to equip them to do the work of ministry, and for use in discipleship relationships.

Perhaps you’ve been looking for a new book for yourself to read in your devotional time, or perhaps you’ve been wanting to get together with a brother or sister in the Lord to encourage them in their walk with the Lord – these resources are there to be readily available for you.

There will essentially be 4 categories of resources that we will highlight this time around: theology, sanctification, Christian biography, and the church.

Every other month we will send out a blog highlighting one of these resources. The second of these is our sanctification resource: Pleasing People: How not to be an “approval junkie” by Lou Priolo

Sanctification Resource

Pleasing People: How not to be an “approval junkie” by Lou Priolo - $13

"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." --Stuart Scott, Associate Professor of Biblical Counseling, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"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 its 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." --Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of The Excellent Wife and Damsels in Distress

"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." --Wayne Mack, director of Strengthening Ministries
