The Anxious Christian: Can God Use Your Anxiety for Good?

Is anxiety “un-Christian”?

Many Christians believe the answer to this question is yes! Understandably, then, many Christians feel shame when they are anxious. They especially feel this shame when well-intentioned fellow believers dismiss or devalue anxiety with Christian platitudes and Bible verses.

Rhett Smith, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, helps us understand anxiety in a new way. Rhett argues that, rather than being destructive or shameful, anxiety can be a catalyst for our spiritual growth. Using Biblical thinking and personal examples, Rhett explains how anxiety allows us to face our resistance and fears, understand where those fears come from, and then make intentional decisions about issues such as career, marriage, money, and our spiritual lives.

Allow this book to challenge your view of anxiety, and allow God to use your anxiety for good.

    This review is from: The Anxious Christian: Can God Use Your Anxiety for Good? (Paperback)
    I enjoyed this book but it didn’t address my specific anxieties – mine is all health anxiety. I enjoyed the overall theme but again this wasn’t specific to my personal issues.
