Publisher's Summary

"Every attempt to help people must first begin with an effort to understand people," says Dr. Larry Crabb. "And the only fully reliable source of information on that topic is the Bible."

In this Gold Medallion Award-winning classic, Dr. Crabb affirms the power of the Scriptures to address the intricacies and deep needs of the human heart. Exploring the inseparable link between spiritual and psychological realities, Understanding People offers a vital lens on how we're put together - who we really are and what makes us tick in our relationships with other people, with God, and with ourselves.

In three parts, this book first points us to the Bible as our source of insight into perplexing heart issues. Then, it helps us come to grips with our brokenness as God's image-bearers, and it shows how we can reclaim our ability to reflect him in our growth toward maturity and healed relationships.

For Every Adult Christian

While this book is for adults, both for understanding level and some of the mature content, It's amazing. I come away from all of Larry Crabb's books both equipped to better relate to others and better able to understand myself.

I highly recommend this for all adult Christians

Warning: there are several very frank mentions of certain sexual sins in this book. I wasn't super comfortable, but Crabb deals with it in such a biblical, god-honoring way that I wasn't offended by it
