Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest – Edward T. Welch (Paperback)

RM76.00

In this faith-bolstering book, best-selling author Edward T. Welch investigates the roots of fear in the human heart and the ramifications of living in the grips of anxiety, worry, and dread.

Running Scared explores how fear inescapably takes root in all of our lives—and how our race for the good life finds us all too often “running scared.” Welch encourages readers to discover for themselves how the Bible is full of beautiful words of comfort and peace for fearful people.

Everyone is afraid of something, and Welch guides readers to see how Jesus enters in to fear. Within thirty topical meditations, Welch offers sound biblical theology, gospel answers, and moment-by-moment, thoughtful encouragement for those in a heart and mind battlefield of rampant, panic-stricken fear.

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 rather than human independence, control, and self-protectiveness.

Running Scared affirms that, through Scripture, God speaks directly to our fears, including:

  • Money and possessions
  • People and their judgments
  • Death, pain, suffering, and punishment

Welch’s lively text provides convincing evidences that humanity’s struggle against active and dormant fears are countless. He presents the good news 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 road map to a life of serenity and security.
