One of the haunting dilemmas of the human condition is that fear is "an inescapable feature of earthly life." Every person who has lived on this earth has encountered fear. Tragically, for this reason our race for the good life finds us all too often "running scared." In his new release, Running Scared, Edward T. Welch investigates the roots of fear in the human soul and the ramifications of living in the grips of anxiety, worry, and dread.
Welch encourages readers to discover for themselves that the Bible is full of beautiful words of comfort for fearful people (and that every single person is afraid of something). Within the framework of thirty topical meditations, Welch offers sound biblical theology and moment-by-moment, thoughtful encouragement for life-saving rescue in the midst of the heart and mind battlefield of rampant panic-stricken responses.
This comprehensive primer on the topic of fear, worry, and the rest of God will have readers retreating to scripture for invariable constancy, stalwart care, and robust comfort, instead of as Welch terms it, "hitting the default switch" by responding with characteristic human independence, control, and self-protectiveness. Running Scared affirms that, through Scripture, God speaks directly to our fears:
Welchs lively text provides convincing evidences that humanitys struggle against active and dormant fears are countless. The good news is that God provides both the remedy and the cure for this malady in the person of Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, and through powerful, life-altering promises in Scripture. Far more than merely another psychology "self-help" guide, Running Scaredserves as a biblical roadmap to a life of serenity and security.
-Stephen Arterburn, Founder of New Life Ministries and Women of Faith, Author of Reframe Your Life
"Fear can make cowards of us all. It can also cripple the mighty, stripping us of confidence and strength to ever face the challenges of ordinary lifea terrible way to live. In his characteristic voice which is both authoritative and sensitive, Welch inspires us to turn to God as our champion in our battle with fear."
-Dr. Tim Clinton, President, American Association of Christian Counselors
"Worriers are false prophetsthat insight alone was worth the price of the book, but far, far more awaits the wise reader who explores this brilliant book by Ed Welch. Ed tells our story of fear and worry with compelling honesty and depth. But even more, he invites us to see how our loyal God refuses to abandon us in our fear; instead, he allows our fear to reveal our fragility and desperate need for his presence. I was not only informed and moved by this book, but I was also invited to worship. This is not merely a book about fear; it is an invitation to a transformed view of God."
-Dan B. Allender, Ph.D., President and Professor of Counseling, Mars Hill Graduate School, Author of To Be Told and Leading with a Limp
"To live is to fret, and Ed Welch understands why. With an impressive grasp of what makes people tick, Ed exposes what lies beneath our fears and escorts us to the One who supplies hope for worriers. Ed's writing is clear, honest, pastoral and, most importantly, soaked with scripture. Read this book, and be not afraid."
-Dave Harvey, Sovereign Grace Ministries, Author of When Sinners Say "I Do"
"Capturing the depth and complexity of fear, Welch provides immeasurable insight into an emotion that is experienced by all, but for some enslaves. Skillfully illustrating the eternal sufficiency of Jesus Christ and the majesty of His glorious Kingdom, Running Scared forces fear beneath the shadow of the Almighty where it dissipates under the loving care of a heavenly Father. A remarkable read!"
-Jeremy Lelek, M.A., President, Association of Biblical Counselors, www.christiancounseling.com
"Ed Welch has thought deeply about the fears we all face and he's found the confidence and hope that we all need: they're found in relationship with a Redeemer who has gone before us and assured us of triumph in Him. Ed Welch is case-wise and he brings that wisdom to you in this helpful book. I highly recommend it."
-Elyse Fitzpatrick, Author of Because He Loves Me: How Christ Transforms Our Daily Life
Margo5 Stars Out Of 5amazing bookJuly 2, 2016MargoQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I can't recommend this book highly enough. I consider it to be one the best books I've read about life as a follower of Jesus Christ, and I've been reading excellent Christian books for 35 years and leading Bible studies for 25. If you want to have more peace of mind and heart, if you want to know how to trust our Lord when circumstances and feelings tempt you to fear, this book WILL lead you to know how. Your view of our amazing God will never be the same! DO get this book and share it with those you love. And get the study guide called When I Am Afraid, also by Welch. These books will change your life if you give them serious thought and prayer as you read and consider what he says. But even without the study guide, Running Scared is life changing. And if, like me, you would say fear or worry is not an issue for you, read this book to be set straight and learn how to trust God in ways you haven't before and to rest in His true character and ways.

Lisa4 Stars Out Of 5December 12, 2007LisaLoved this book. Bought it to help my children learn how to deal with fear. In the process found out how much fear was in my own life. Ed Welch writes in plain language and his findings are straight from God's Word.
