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.… (més)

In Running Scared, Edward Welch offers a topical study on fear and worry. Using a conversational narrative, Welch offers practical advice for stress management, as well as an in-depth biblical analysis of what God has to say about fear and worry in both the Old and New Testaments. As much as this is a study on fear and worry, it is also a character analysis on the promises and faithfulness of God.

Whether by design or circumstance, the book is divided into 30 chapters, most of which end with a brief section titled "A Personal Response" offering more overtly guided ideas for personal reflection and life application. Most chapters are between 8-12 pages in length. Its structured in such a way that this can easily be split up into 30 daily readings.

The author communicates in a clear and concise manner, having a very easily accessible tone to his writing. This book is a great resource for both the individual, or for a small group study, and I've found it to be very encouraging for my own walk. ( )

Like all of Ed Welch's books, Running Scared is a helpful book for ordinary people who struggle with ordinary sins. Scripture-laden and down-to-earth, this expose on fear, worry, and anxiety addresses our souls with the living and active word of the Living God.

Welch writes in an easy, conversational style, weaving Scripture, personal stories, and thoughtful heart-oriented application into the tapestry of his book. The thirty chapters are short enough to read several in one sitting. The last two thirds of the book helpfully divides into four sections addressing three categories of fear: (1) money and possessions; (2) people and their judgments; (3) death, pain and punishment; then finally, peace with God. This last section may be my favorite, as Welch helpfully unfolds several biblical themes (such as covenant, shalom, and peacemaking) with a view to helping us deal with our fears.

Running Scared will be helpful for several groups of people: (1) those with anxiety disorders or pathological fears; (2) people struggling with everyday, garden-variety worry; (3) psychologistis, pastors, and both professional and lay counselors who are trying to help people work through their fears. I found the book helpful in both personal and pastoral ways and highly recommend it to others. ( )

I have just finished reading this book and in accord with the author's recommendation I read a chapter each day, after sharing the content with another person. My husband won't have to read the book, but fortunately he was impressed and moved by the content as I was. It is a rare "self-help" book that is not full of psycho-babble. Instead it is rich with real life illustrations and practical applications from the Bible. I didn't consider myself a particularly fearful person, but from the beginning this book encouraged me to face my fears. It helped me to realize that what I call anxieties is just a fancy way of expressing fear! I had to "fearfully" come face to face with my fears and recognize them as sinful behaviour. And I am one who has been in ministry many years! Through my reading of this book my concept of God's glory grew and my trust in Him is growing daily as I rely on Him to take of me and my "worries." I really am not the same person as I was when I began reading the book! ( )
