Is anxiety "un-Christian"?
Many Christians believe the answer to this question is yes! Understandably, then, many Christians feel shame when they are anxious. They especially feel this shame when well-intentioned fellow believers dismiss or devalue anxiety with Christian platitudes and Bible verses.
Rhett Smith, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, helps us understand anxiety in a new way. Rhett argues that, rather than being destructive or shameful, anxiety can be a catalyst for our spiritual growth. Using Biblical thinking and personal examples, Rhett explains how anxiety allows us to face our resistance and fears, understand where those fears come from, and then make intentional decisions about issues such as career, marriage, money, and our spiritual lives.
Allow this book to challenge your view of anxiety, and allow God to use your anxiety for good.
Brianna4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: The Anxious ChristianJuly 1, 2015BriannaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0When I reviewed the titles of available books, The Anxious Christian, immediately piqued my interest. Over the last year, I learned a lot of about anxiety in my life and I looked forward to the possibility that I could apply a book to my life beyond reading and reviewing it.
In The Anxious Christian, Rhett Smith uses personal experience to supplement his professional expertise on the topic of anxiety. The unspoken assumption is that Christians should never worry, fear, or be anxious. Therefore, Christians who live with anxiety may feel ashamed or lonely; they might even feel un-Christian. Many times, Christians are advised to get rid of their anxiety or not think about it.
In contrast, Smith gently encourages his readers to imagine what purpose God might have for the anxiety. He also recognizes that anxiety is multifaceted, both in the factors that contribute to anxiety and the ways anxiety can affect life. Therefore, he gives examples of small steps that can help in the process of understanding anxiety and learning to embrace it.
It is important to note that The Anxious Christian should not be used in the place of professional counseling. But Smiths insights may be a useful tool alongside counseling. The end of The Anxious Christian includes a list of resources as well as recommendations for finding support and counseling.
