Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pastors need to read this book, and recommend it to their people. Plus, they can use it as a study or preaching guide within their churches. This is a serious issue for most Christians and it is seldom addressed as biblically and practically as Simpson does in this exceptional resource." (Brad Hoefs, Outreach Magazine's Resources of the Year, March/April 2015)

"Worry disorients us. Anxiety can paralyze us. In Anxious Amy Simpson gives us a God?s-eye-view of the world, demonstrating that worry and anxiety are foreign to life in the kingdom. This will be a book to which I will return when I need encouragement to trust God. Anxious reorients us to God and his perspective in Scripture, bringing peace to a knotted soul." (Marlena Graves, author, A Beautiful Disaster: Finding Hope in the Midst of Brokenness)

"Amy Simpson tells us that worry ought not keep us up at night, but this page-turner will! As fascinating as it is funny, as convicting as it is clever, Anxious gives us a gander into Jesus' mind and what he must've been thinking when he said, 'Do not worry.' Do not miss this terrific book." (Caryn Rivadeneira, author of Broke: What Financial Desperation Revealed About God's Abundance)

"Amy Simpson challenges our popular approaches to worry. Many of us believe worrying isn't a problem for us; she helps us realize that it is. We often believe we can overcome worry through willpower or good behavior. She helps us understand that it's far more effective to address worry as a problem with the way we think, rooted in what we believe about God. Here's the good news: there is hope for all of us worried people, and it's found in faith." (Anita Lustrea, host of Midday Connection, speaker and author of What Women Tell Me)

"Challenging the idolatrous underpinnings of worry, former Christianity Today executive Amy Simpson encourages us to root our faith in who God is, not in our own will power." (Light Magazine, October 2014)

"Pastoral hint: keep a copy of Anxious on your shelf for the parishioners who seek you out because they feel anxious about life." (Willard E. Roth, Sharing the Practice, June 2015)

"Anxious provides sound advice for worriers, those who live with worriers, those who minister to worriers and those 'who are convinced worry isn't a problem in their lives,' because it is for someone they know. After all, as Christians, the future belongs to God, and worry won't change a thing." (Kathy Robinson Hillman, Baptist Standard, April 13, 2015)
