Running Scared


When I picked up this book, I wasn’t sure how much could really be said about the subjects of fear and worry beyond “stop it, trust God, etc.” Plus, I didn’t feel like I had that much fear and worry in my life to begin with. But I’d heard good things about the book, and I happened to score it for free, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

Um…wow. Back up. Turns out there is a LOT to be said about fear and worry beyond the Christian clichés we’re so used to hearing. Welch masterfully drills beneath the surface of these subjects, going deep into the core, exposing why they’re so hard to shake.

Turns out this was a timely read for me, too. I didn’t realize how much fear and worry were attached to me, and how much they reveal about my relationship with God.

My advice? If you feel inclined to read this, give yourself a large window and lots of grace. You’re not gonna master this stuff in a day. Just pretend it’s counseling and see where it takes you.

ps – It’s only about 2.50 in Kindle format at the time of this writing if you want to go that route.
