Summary

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 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 listeners 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 30 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 listeners 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.

Powerful and Convicting

As someone who struggles with certain fears and worries, this book was eye-opening and helped return my focus to the God of peace and rest. Highly recommend this book and this reader, who did an excellent job!

Tremendous insight and biblical backing

I have listened to many Christian authors in last couple of years, this reading tops them all!
