Publisher's Summary

Anxiety is at an all-time high, but there's a prescription for dealing with it. Max Lucado invites listeners into a study of Philippians 4:6-7, where the Apostle Paul admonishes the followers of Christ, "Do not be anxious about anything...."

Philippians 4:6 encourages the believer to "be anxious for nothing". As Lucado states, the Apostle Paul seems to leave little leeway here. "Be anxious of nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero."

What's he suggesting? That we should literally be anxious for absolutely nothing? Lucado says, "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 especially know about living in perpetual anxiety. According to one research program, 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 ailments cost the nation $300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity. And use of sedative drugs like Xanax and Valium have skyrocketed in the last 15 years. Even students are feeling it. One psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has 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. But there's a prescription for dealing with it. Lucado invites listeners into a study of Philippians 4:6-7, the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet, according to Amazon:

"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."

"With his help you will learn to face the calamities of life. You'll learn how to talk yourself off the ledge. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you will learn to view bad news through the lens of sovereignty, to discern the lies of Satan and tell yourself the truth. You will manifest a gentleness that is evident to others. Anxiety comes with life. But it doesn't have to dominate your life."

    "great book"

    There were so many inspirational and biblical points from this book, that I just want to post pages of the book around the house. I have been dealing with anxiety for several years and am slowly making progress with it and this book was just what I needed to keep me moving in the right direction!

    "Great Biblical perspective"

    This book quotes the Bible a lot showing you that God gives us every reason to not worry but keep our focus on Him. Definitely a short read but packed with lots of great information! Thank you Max Lucado!

    "Great read!"

    The words in this book, like the words in the Bible, gives us all hope. The directions to life are the passages from the Bible. All we have to do is read the directions but sometimes we think we can handle it alone. Sometimes we are too stubborn to ask for directions. Loved the book.

    The problem is not the problem, but how you are looking at it, ask God how He sees it!!!

    "Provided Comfort in a Time of Need"

    I am a spiritual person, not religious. But this audiobook was just what I needed to help put things back into perspective. The narrator had a soothing voice so it made it easy to listen to.
