Publisher's Summary

Be free from the worries that weigh you down.

If you're trembling on a tightrope of fear and worry, get ready for the best trade ever: your cares for God's calm.

What if faith, not fear, could be your default reaction to circumstances? Imagine being able to walk away from worry, conquer the need to control, get rid of guilt, and end if-only thinking.

That's God's offer. He wants to exchange your burdens for an abundance of mercy, gratitude, and trust. To replace striving and stress with a faith-filled life in which you'll see God's goodness, feel calm in chaos, and find peace through prayer.

Best-selling author Max Lucado understands what it's like to feel overwhelmed by anxiety. Through unforgettable stories and biblical wisdom, he offers powerful tools to help you manage your fears and worries.

The best book to reduce stress

This is the best book I read with practical advice and techniques for reducing worry. It is a must read for anyone, not just Christians, who stresses out. God bless you Max.

Good read.. That I heard before

Max 's book's are always so good. Sorry to say, I found it a bit frustrating though to hear so many EXACT stories, passages and versus from 'Anxious for Nothing'. It was almost like listening to the same book... which I already enjoyed listening to ~ 4 times.
If you can chose..... 'Anxious' ( 1 hour longer) would be my advice for you. ┼

Max does it again!

Using many scriptures he teaches us not to worry but to let God be in charge. The lessons are detailed but easily understood.
