Format: Kindle Edition
This is a well-written book that we all can relate to. Life is full of despair and we suffer from the unknown that causes stress, anxiety and a lot of times, worry that's unnecessary. This book has many examples of day to day things that can trigger anxiety and how to deal with it. I believe most people will benefit from reading it and the key is to practice positive thinking.

HASH(0x9c728be8) out of 5 stars good medicine (for the heart, mind and body) July 13 2011
By FaithfulReader.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Author Gregory L. Jantz, PhD, is a speaker and the author of more than 25 books, and his co-author, Ann McMurray, has written with him several times. Combining their expertise, they offer more than the run-of-the-mill, how-to advice on overcoming anxieties, worries and fears.

Jantz opens the text with an Introduction filled to overflowing with every kind of fear a person might suffer. Aptly titled "One More Thing to Worry About," this intro to the topic at hand brings it home by addressing how commonplace most of our fears truly are. Jantz's descriptions will resonate with Christ followers in equal measure to those with no particular faith-based worldview (translated: everyone struggles against anxiety/worry/fear).

A smattering of Jantz's queries includes these questions for readers trying to discern whether or not they might find value in his newest resource. Jantz asks: "Do you ever find yourself fearful without really knowing why? Do you worry about a thousand little things during the day? Do you sometimes feel like you're smothering, like you can't get enough air? Do you wake up in the morning tired and irritable? Do you have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep? Do you avoid certain people, places, and situations because of how fearful they make you feel? If you've answered 'yes' to any or all of these questions, then this book is for you."

Jantz helps readers grasp just how cumbersome our electronic age has made our lives by giving us too much information too quickly, too often, and in too big amounts. For many people, living in a constant stream of anxiousness has become the only way they know how to live. The authors want to share a different way, a better way.

In this hefty two-part text, readers will first gain a strong foundational (biblical) understanding of the effects of anxiety, worry and fear. Specifically, they will learn how to decode their emotions and delineate "what's what" in the realms of emotions and thinking and believing patterns. A strong emphasis is placed on the importance of disciplining one's thought life and our hidden assumptions (which aren't so hidden as we might think or hope). Jantz discusses the various effects of stress in one's life and on the body; how individuals cope and self-medicate to ease emotional pain; how relationships are negatively affected by not addressing fears; how depression plays a part in these emotional struggles; and how people sometimes choose paralysis over making active choices.

Part two is the how-to "get better" section where the authors concentrate on practical methods for experiencing relief from fears and worries by taking control of the "volume" of what we listen to internally; by refusing to sweat the small stuff; learning to relax; making small baby steps toward change; proactively choosing a better way to live; making healthy choices; writing a new script for life; and intentionally trusting in God through faith.

There's much to be said about asking introspective questions and then making proactive, positive life choices. Jantz enables readers to do both, and his text is so engaging and encouraging that even those Christ followers who experienced such defeat before when attempting change will give it another go after reading this excellent resource. It's good medicine (for the heart, mind and body).

HASH(0x9c728c3c) out of 5 stars Overcoming Anxiety, Worry and Fear: Practical Ways to Find Peace Dec 8 2012
By AE Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very well written. It cuts to the heart of these struggles and explains them clearly and carefully. It gives great "real life" examples with which you can identify. It explains thoroughly the cause and effect of all types of anxiety, fears and worry and the reader can easily assess their own situation. It is matter-of-fact, no nonsense approach with very doable and practical applications. It do not make the reader feel belittled but empowered to face their struggle head on. It has helped me GREATLY.

By James E Marnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never written a book review in my life. This book is so helpful to the battle of anxiety disorders that I feel compelled to share my appreciation with others. If you are not particularly religious you will still this find this book on point for understanding and combatting your issues with anxiety. If you are Christian, you will get the bonus of seeing how scriptures and suggested prayers support your efforts. This a great book!!

By scda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A breath of fresh air! This is very helpful for those who have struggled with habitual or chronic worry, anxiety, and stress, and are willing to positively and objectively look beyond just circumstances to underlying attitudes and beliefs that we accumulate while we live through life's challenges. It provides insight and positive steps to take which can ultimately provide renewed hope and strength.
