This review is from: The Anxious Christian: Can God Use Your Anxiety for Good? (Paperback)
In his book, Rhett humbly shares his own story before diving into the "how to's" of dealing with--or more appropriately accepting--anxiety. This is what sets him apart from the rest of Christian living writers. Whereas many books would come across as clinical and formulaic, Rhett writes about how he faces head-on the role that anxiety plays in his life. For all Christians-regardless of generation-he gives us permission to be anxious, to welcome this feeling in our lives and to befriend it, asking, "What do you have to teach me today?"

While many of us run from anxiety, Rhett draws a line in the sand saying,"This is a battle. It's your choice. Flight or Fight." While he boldly asks us this question, he gives snapshots of his own raw struggle with this moment to moment question. His wins, and especially his losses, prove that in fleeing, we begin to merely exist in this life, but in fighting, we gain much more than we could imagine.

Three years ago I found myself desperately fleeing my anxiety and grasping for anything to distract me from it. I showed up in Rhett's waiting room, paralyzed by fear and what ifs. As an author, a therapist, and as an anxious Christian, Rhett has guided me to a point of being able see my dragon and invite him in for tea. And I have gained life when I almost lost it.

My video version of my book review, and a living example of anxiety can be used for good... http://bit.ly/A2ziPO
