Product Description

Feeling anxious is something most of us experience at some point in our lives. At its core, it's a fear--a sense of worry or tension--about what is or what might occur, but it's not one that helps. It drags us down--it does not enable us to thrive--and it leaves us unequipped for the day ahead. This book is ideal for giving away to those who feel anxious-whether Christian or non-Christian.

This short, sympathetic and warm book will help both Christian and non-Christian readers understand anxiety better, learn some useful techniques to cope with it and, most importantly, show how the living God can liberate us from its grip.

Whether you are used to reading about God or not even sure if he really exists (or if he cares about your anxiety in any meaningful way), this book has precious words of encouragement for you.

"As you read, it is my prayer that you will come to see real hope and take the first few steps in a lifetime of change." Helen Thorne, author.

Editorial Reviews

Helen Thorne has provided a concise and helpful guide to managing your anxiety. As a struggler herself, she wisely pays attention to both body and soul while being a compas- sionate voice that you will relate to. Practical techniques coupled with a strong Redeemer are just what we need and what she offers. -- Dr Tim Lane (President, Institute for Pastoral Care)

Those struggling with anxiety need a resource that is short, relatable... and actually useful. Helen has delivered this and more. I appreciate her realistic perspective and rich teaching: though our anxiety may be a daily battle, we do not fight alone but in the strength that God supplies and with his ever-present help. Highly recommend this! -- Kristen Wetherell (Author, Fight Your Fears)

This warm, grace-filled, sympathetic book will be a help to many. Helen Thorne sits at the reader’s side and walks them gently through wonderful Bible truth. The book is earthed in experience, informed by counselling skills and written in an easy-to-read style. I recommend it warmly. -- Christopher Ash (Writer-in-Residence, Tyndale House, Cambridge)

Some books on anxiety make you feel the author really gets anxiety. Others offer clear and helpful solutions. Hope in an Anxious World does both. Simple, clear and accessible, this book reorients us in our anxiety with highly practical advice, showing what we can learn from psychology’s experience and then majoring on the deep wellsprings of help and hope found in the Scriptures. -- J. Alasdair Groves (Executive Director, CCEF)

This book is packed full of understanding and encouragement for our battle with anxiety. It not only takes the best self-help strategies but goes further by addressing the lies that lurk behind anxiety and by helping us to hear what God says in response. It is accessible and engaging for both Christians and others who are willing to see what wisdom the Bible has for addressing anxiety. It is a book that I will be returning to myself, and I will be recommending it to all those who struggle with anxieties—big and small. -- Dr Joanna Jackson (Director of Counselling, All Souls Counselling Service)

In the disorientating swirl of anxious thoughts and feelings, we need simple, clear and reassuring truth. Helen manages to capture the experience of fear in tangible descriptions, to help us understand its causes and, most importantly, to bring gospel realities to bear on our struggles. But perhaps we are most indebted to Helen for speaking personally out of lived experience. When she says there is hope, we listen. When she shares what helps, we benefit. And as she does all this, she comforts us with the comfort of God. I benefitted from reading this, and as a counsellor I expect to be recommending it over and over. -- Dr Andrew Collins (Consultant Psychiatrist and Biblical Counsellor)

The events of 2020 have only exacerbated the epidemic of anxiety sweeping through our society. Teenagers, children and adults alike are susceptible to its powerful—and deeply damaging—lies. Helen Thorne speaks powerfully from her personal experience of anxiety and of the hope that counteracts those lies. This book doesn’t offer the false hope of a miraculous cure but something far better—the true hope that is found in Christ, who walks with us, shares our burdens, and leads us into a place of confidence and joy. -- Ros Clarke (Associate Director, Church Society)
