Publisher's Description

Manage or prevent anxiety using faith-based methods

"Fear not." "Do not be afraid." "Peace be with you." Phrases like these appear in the Bible more often than almost any other proclamation. We long to follow these commands. Yet for many, something inside us is wary, ready for anything and everything to go wrong. In fact, a quarter of Americans struggle with anxiety disorders--and Christians are not immune.

Jason and Dena Hobbs are familiar with this struggle, professionally and personally--Jason as a clinician, Dena as someone with anxiety, and both as pastors of congregations full of anxious people. They also know the shame and confusion that so often accompany these disorders, especially for people who think their faith should be strong enough to overcome these struggles. With their deep understanding, they've written When Anxiety Strikes, an eight-week guide to managing anxiety, grounded in both Scripture and research.

Structured for daily reading, with integrated practices for everyday life, the book addresses seven themes: breath, body, movement, mind, change, spirit, and community. Concise stories, readings, questions, and activities guide readers to tackle the realities of living with anxiety. When Anxiety Strikes offers real solutions to find a solid landing place when the storm of fear looms.

Editorial Reviews

“Anxiety is running rampant not just in our culture but in this moment in history. The Hobbses offer a down-to-earth, practical approach to overcoming anxiety that everyone can benefit from. When Anxiety Strikes will help you experience the breakthrough you’re searching for.” -- Margaret Feinberg, author of More Power to You

“This book is the gift of two faithful disciples who are listening for how God is speaking through the realities and rhythms of their own lives. Dena and Jason Hobbs are prayerful theologians who offer thoughtfully integrated reflections on Scripture, brain, and body. The insights and practices they provide here promise to sustain us in difficult moments as well as reshape our responses to triggers that cannot be avoided. I look forward to sharing this resource with pastors and church leaders who want to honor and facilitate the ways many in our congregations find wholeness in our bodies and spirits.” -- Nikki Collins, national coordinator of 1001 New Worshiping Communities, Presbyterian Church USA

When Anxiety Strikes is an excellent book for anxiety management and a valuable resource within the Christian tradition. We are fortunate to have this book combining personal narrative, pastoral wisdom, and clinical insights.” -- Harold G. Koenig, MD, director, Center for Spirituality,Theology, and Health, Duke Uni. Med Center

“As a family therapist who responds weekly to persons in crisis, I am eager to recommend this practical assembly of exercises and remedies that Jason and Dena Hobbs have provided for the care and relief of those coping with these debilitating attacks. The authors write from personal experience and with spiritual insight, offering encouragement and help in the process.” -- Daniel G. Bagby, PhD, AAMFT, Professor Emeritus of Pastoral Care, Baptist Theological Seminary

“The earth seems to be shifting under our feet with a global pandemic, ecological crises, wars, you name it. No wonder we are anxious. But anxiety undermines health, leads to bad decisions, and hurts relationships. And those who don’t know they are anxious are actually most at risk of anxiety damaging their health or flaring out destructively. If we are human, anxiety is an issue. Saying ‘have faith’ is a platitude. We need real help. This book offers that help. It grounds the ancient wisdom of Scripture in our bodily experience and builds upon that scriptural foundation with practices we can actually do to make it through the week.” -- The Rt. Rev Dan Edwards, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada (retired)
