Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God Rest

Edward T Welch
Also Available In
Edward T. Welch reveals God's plan for encouraging those in the grips of fear. 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:
  • On money and possessions
  • On people and their judgments
  • On death, pain, and punishment
Welch's lively text provides convincing evidences that humanity's 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 Scared serves as a biblical roadmap to a life of serenity and security.

help for those who struggle with fear, anxiety, and the fear of man
5 stars By Steve N, Apr 26 2016
I struggle with anxiety and fear of man. I know I should fear God instead of people - but I keep thinking about what others think of me (do they approve of me, accept me, criticise me?). I got a lot out of Ed Welch's When People are Big and God is small. This one (Running Scared) is like a work book, digging into the reasons we get anxious and fearful - and how the gospel of God's grace in Christ re-orients us towards freedom from fear, peace and rest. I've found my heart grow quieter since going through this book, my self-understanding more secure as I gaze on Christ and who I am in Him. It's a deep book, but is easy to read, and is full of help for the reader personally and how to help other fearful people. Highly recommended.
