Publisher Comments:

He should have seen it coming. Anonymous letters are rarely good. On the day after preaching a sermon at his church, Rob Shepherd opened a letter filled with hurtful words and a very strong opinion about how awful his sermon was. On his fourth reading of the letter, Rob heard a still small voice say, “Even if you preached the perfect sermon somebody would crucify it.” That thought began the process of setting Rob free from being a lifelong people pleaser.

With humor, personal stories, and great conviction Rob shares his personal story of learning to care less about what people say and more about what God says. Even If You Were Perfect Somebody Would Crucify You uncovers what our real struggle is when it comes to pleasing people. You can be set free from the fear of saying no to people, win the battle with avoiding confrontation, learn the power of confession, and find your true identity in Jesus.

Synopsis:

After reading an anonymous letter that crucified his recent sermon at church, Rob Shepherd heard a still small voice say, “Even if you preached a perfect sermon somebody would crucify it.” That thought helped to set Rob free. Whether its struggling to forgive someone, understanding how important human relationships are, or wrestling with a spiritual enemy, the key to victorious living is learning how to find your identity in Jesus. When we do, we live less to please people and more to please God. Thats the kind of truth that “turns the world upside down”---and it will radically change your life as well.
