This is a good book that has many good nuggets and helpful ways to look at fear, worry & anxiety. I will re-read some parts and use what is helpful. I do, however, take exception of the author's statement that God has "classified worry as a sin".(page 112). I have heard from pastors, leaders & ministry people for 30 years that "fear is a sin". When I had fear or worry, I would feel condemned that I had sinned. While reading this book and that particular chapter, I kept waiting for the boom to be lowered - another thump on the head from the bible. I do believe that fear, worry and anxiety is not the optimum for anyone and we are told over and over "fear not", but as far as it being "sin", there is no scripture supportive of this whatsoever. I kept waiting for the "scripture" that would seal this long held belief and instead of getting that, what I got was the opposite - freedom in that I have not sinned when I have worried or been in fear. No, it is not what God wants for us, but nowhere in the bible does it tell us to "repent of fear." It is, rather, an admonishment and encouragement that we should not worry because our heavenly Father will take care of everything. It is a very human emotion and we are all human. Who has never feared? Fear can actually be a gift of God at times when He is trying to warn of a situation. Another revelation came to me when I realized that yes, even Jesus, had fear when he was in the Garden before his cruxifiction. The bible says that "he was tempted in ALL WAYS like we are" - so He would have had to had fear. He was deeply agonized in the Garden (read it and study it out). But that scripture goes on to say that even though He was tempted in all ways as we are, YET WITHOUT SIN. So, the FEAR itself is NOT SIN.Read more ›

I have read this book front to back a few times. It is such a comfort and helps me truly put things in prospective. I am a person whom has had to overcome much of this - my husband was in bondage to sexual sin - and I had to learn to put my trust first in the Lord. MY husband, Praise God found Victory. It really helped me to stop asking so many what if questions? why questions? Thank you Elyse for writing this book for me =)

There is a lot of fluff and junk out in the Christian publishing world and I have read too much of it. This, however, is a well written, Biblical and truly helpful book for those who suffer from fear, worry and anxiety. I have recommended it many times and donated it to my local church library.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Books and Chocolate TOP 500 REVIEWER on February 14, 2011
Format: Paperback
As someone who has struggled with anxiety issues, and as a Christian, I found this book to be one of the best on the subject of fear, worry, and anxiety that I've read. It draws a good balance between the psychological and physical side of the issues with the approach scripture tells us to take in dealing with such things.

I have to confess I didn't like reading that fear and worry are sin at first, but I continued to read and by the end of the book I could see that they really are because both reflect a lack of trust in God. However, neither the author nor scriptures condemn a person for falling into the worry trap that leads to fear and anxiety. Instead, Fitzpatrick respectfully and compassionately uses her counseling experience and biblical truth to help the reader discover ways to overcome the cycle and replace fear with God's power.

The book helps the reader identify their real sources of fears and worries which I found helpful. I'm often skeptical when counselors want to blame everything on childhood and while that sometimes is a root of adult issues, Fitzpatrick touches on that possibility but doesn't dwell on as the only cause. For myself, working through some of the exercises helped me see how some of what I learned and experienced growing up has contributed to my inclination to worry today.

What I took away from this book is that most of what we worry about and fear the most almost always never happens. I was reminded that I can't be anxious, fearful and full of worry at the same time I'm trusting God to protect, provide, and care for me. They simply can't co-exist.

This is a book I will read again.

Very well written, eye opening book. Highly recommended for anyone struggling w/ an anxiety/panic disorder. A big step towards recovery is "letting go". This book clearly explains why you need to do so & how to go about it from a Christian perspective.

Excellent Gospel centered approach to dealing with anxiety and fear. The author, Elyse Fitzpatrick, really understands the subject matter both from personal experience and also from years of counseling others. She does a wonderful job of relating the examples to the readers and giving hope through Christ. I would encourage any woman struggling through anxiety and fear to study through this book as it helps you study through God's Word. Not only will you feel encouraged but you will not feel alone in your struggles as you realize that God understands them all and has given His own examples in the Scriptures of those whom He delivered that cried out to Him for comfort from their fears.
