Editorial Reviews

Review

Fear is the most under-rated emotion of all our troubles. Ed has written a great book that is of great help to those of us who have to struggle with the paralyzing feelings of fear and anxiety.
--Stephen Arterburn, Founder, New Life Ministries and Women of Faith Author, Reframe Your Life

Fear can make cowards of us all. It can also cripple the mighty, stripping us of confidence and strength to ever face the challenges of ordinary life a terrible way to live. In his characteristic voice which is both authoritative and sensitive, Welch inspires us to turn to God as our champion in our battle with fear.
--Dr. Tim Clinton, President, American Association of Christian Counselors

Worriers are false prophets that insight alone was worth the price of the book, but far, far more awaits the wise reader who explores this brilliant book by Ed Welch.  Ed tells our story of fear and worry with compelling honesty and depth.  But even more, he invites us to see how our loyal God refuses to abandon us in our fear; instead, he allows our fear to reveal our fragility and desperate need for his presence.  I was not only informed and moved by this book; I was invited to worship.  This is not merely a book about fear; it is an invitation to a transformed view of God.
--Dan B. Allender, Ph.D., President and Professor of Counseling, Mars Hill Graduate School Author, To Be Told and Leading with a Limp
