Product Overview

Street Date: 09/05/2017
Anxiety is on the rise in our culture. Max Lucado has found a new prescription for treating anxiety. He invites readers into a study of Philippians 4:6-7 where the Apostle Paul tells Christ followers, "Do not be anxious about anything..."
 
Philippians 4:6 encourages the believer to "be anxious for nothing." Lucado emphasizes, the apostle Paul leaves little wiggle room here. "Be anxious for nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero."
 
Is he really suggesting we can have no anxiety? Lucado teaches, "The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional. It's the life of perpetual anxiety that Paul wants to address. Don't let anything in life leave you perpetually in angst."
 
Americans are well acquainted with perpetual anxiety. Research reveals anxiety-related issues are the number one mental health problem among women and are second only to alcohol and drug abuse among men. Stress-related issues cost the nation $300 billion each year in medical bills and productivity loss. Implementation of sedative drugs like Xanax and Valium have increased tremendously over the last 15 years. The average high school kid today experiences the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s.
 
"The news about our anxiety is enough to make us anxious," says Lucado. There's a prescription for treating it. Lucado guides readers through a study of Philippians 4:6-7. According to Amazon, the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet is:
 
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
