"Jon knows, better than most, what it means to battle anxiety and how to forge a path to victory. He also treats it with care, and pushes the conversation to places that it hasn't often gone in the church."
In the aftermath of the pandemic, even those who never had issues with mental health have found themselves reeling, searching for answers they don't know how to find. For Christians, especially those who've despaired of help from a church that has too often stigmatized poor health as a lack of faith, the way forward can be particularly difficult to see.
Jonathon Seidl hopes to fix that. Having battled his own way through crippling anxiety, life-altering OCD, and suicidal thoughts, he knows the value of concrete advice grounded in strong biblical truth. Instead of the trite or unsympathetic counsel that's too often given, Finding Rest is practical, personal, and productive. Packed with compelling stories, humor from a guide who's still on his journey, and scriptural truths, this book provides real hope and help. It also provides a lifeline for friends and family who long for ways to help relieve the suffering of their loved ones. It also calls to account the church for its historical treatment of mental health and sets out thoughtful, needed paths for the body of Christ to become a refuge of hope for the anxious.
