Edward T. Welch otherwise popularly known as Ed Welch is known for his many Christian fiction works and for for being a counselor on biblical themes.
His most popular work has to be “When People Are Big and God is Small,” which he published in 1997.

Welch has a doctorate and a Master’s in Divinity from the University of Utah and is a member of the faculty at the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF).
He has now been a counselor for more than three decades and has been writing extensively on topics of addictions, fear, and depression for years.

Like many of his colleagues, Edward T. Welch was brought up by a Christian father who suffered from depression.

Even though he was brought up in a Christian home, the Christian life never appealed to him. In one of his interviews, he once asserted that he was a believer in the facts of Christianity, but he never followed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
It was not until he was coming to his final years of university, that he saw very little purpose, depth, and meaning in the life ahead of him. Over several months in which he read a lot of scripture, he finally confessed his sins and came to Christ.
Shortly following his conversion, he made the decision to attend seminary not because he was seeking to work in ministry, but because he needed a Scriptural foundation. He needed to study the bible more and how it changes people.

While he was at CCEF doing his second year, he took a counseling course given that he had always enjoyed talking to people. Since he had an interest in counseling, he went back to graduate school for a few years before he went back to CCEF.

Ed Welch would ultimately attend the Biblical Theological Seminary where he got his Master of Divinity degree. He also attended the University of Utah where he got his doctorate in counseling, majoring in counseling.

Since 1981, he has been working for the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation as a writer, counselor, and teacher. He loves his job as he gets to make the ancient words in the bible come alive in people’s lives when he counsels them.
Edward Welch and Sheir his wife have two daughters who have brought into the family two sons-in-law and eight grandkids.

When he is not working for CCEF, he can usually be found spending time with his family or playing the guitar.

Edward T. Welch’s “When People Are Big and God is Small” is a work divided into two equally good sections.

The first section titled “How and Why We Fear Others” deals with how we fear men where that arises from and how this phenomenon plays out in our daily lives.
“The World Wants Me to Fear People,” which is the fifth chapter is one the best as it points out how contemporary culture has made respectable the fear of man.

The author covers modern assumptions about man and God and then goes deep into how biblical and modern psychology are influenced by these assumptions.

Ultimately, depending on assumptions rather than the word for leaders, pastors, and biblical psychologists reinforce the fear of man when we need to have freedom derived from the fear of God.

“Overcoming the Fear of Others,” which is the second section is an application of the fear of God to the frustrating and often profound issues around the fear of ourselves and man. It is a section full of applied and practical theology.
In my opinion, chapter twelve was the best here as it shows how we can make the fear of man give way to the fear of God in our daily lives, the lives of our communities, and the church.
He asserts that the right fear of God will always result in the enjoyment of God and worship, which is all we should aspire to.

“Side by Side” by Edward T. Welch is something of a manual for becoming more like Christ so that we can get through life and ultimately head to Heaven. While it is a short work, the author breaks it down into easy-to-reference and very specific topics.
The novel begins by asserting that we are needed and we are needy. According to Welch, needing and giving are critical parts of Christian living.

He asserts that anything that keeps on reminding us that we are dependent on others and God is a good thing.

Welch says that the best helpers we have are friends given that they usually come prepackaged with compassion and love – all they need is just a sprinkling of wisdom.

The work is devoted to helping friends gain an understanding of their neediness and then develop a willingness to help others in their neediness. By doing that, they can then walk side by side with their friends.
Edward has some very helpful insights into sin and suffering – how God used them to make us grow and their many pitfalls if we are not careful about them.

Suffering often leaves us emotional and vulnerable and by turning to God and friends, we can be able to confront the bad, even as we see the good in our lives despite the challenges.

In “Running Scared,” Edward T. Welch looks into the consequences of living in the grips of dread, worry, and anxiety and how these aspects take root in the human soul.

The author encourages readers to learn the Bible and the beautiful works of comfort in them. With about thirty topical meditations, Edward provides thoughtful and sound biblical theology to rescue our minds and hearts from panic-stricken responses.
At its best, it is a primer on worry and fear and the rest that we can get to God when we turn to scripture for robust comfort, stalwart care, and invariable constancy.

Welch asserts that when we turn to God rather than respond with self-protectiveness, control, and human independence, we can have the comfort and rest we need.

The novel affirms that God directly speaks to our possessions and money through biblical scripture.

Edward writes lively text and provides some convincing evidence that God is the cure and remedy for dormant and active fears through the life-altering and powerful promises in Christian Scripture, the work of the Holy Spirit, and the person of Jesus Christ.
Far from being just one of those self-help psychology guides that abound, it is a biblical roadmap to a life of security and serenity.
