RUNNING SCARED: Fear, Worry & the God of Rest
Edward T. Welch
New Growth Press
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. “Fear is natural to us,” he explains. “We don’t have to learn it.” With characteristic clarity and insight, Welch explores the way in which fear progresses from childhood, through adolescence, and into adulthood. Fear, he shows us, is our travel companion from infancy to death.
Scripture, however, which we trust as our guide in all the details of life, instructs us very simply: “Do not fear.” In fact, one of the most often repeated directives of both the Old and the New Testaments is “Do not be afraid.” Can life-altering fear be so easily dispelled? Edward Welch assures us that, though fear cannot be summarily dismissed, it can be controlled --- even conquered --- when we allow scripture to guide us to that peace that passes understanding. Through scripture, God leads us through the darkened landscape of an existence ruled by fear to emerge in the light of his love and care.
In RUNNING SCARED, Welch has succeeded in giving us far more than merely another psychology textbook. Rather, he has provided us with a biblical guide to dealing with one of life’s day-by-day struggles. “What began as a study of fear and danger,” he explains, “has enlarged to include God, control, need, love and trust.”
RUNNING SCARED affirms that, through scripture, God speaks directly to our fears:
Edward Welch’s new release, RUNNING SCARED, serves as a biblical roadmap to a life of serenity and security.
