    I suffer from anxiety... ughhh it's awful. I'm always looking for advice and a fix for it. I've read a lot of books on it but this was the first book I've read that was about God and anxiety. Trust me.. I pray about it, but this book gives some specific scriptures to read and an entire...

    When you find the right book at exactly the right time. I so needed this today! So inspiring. I could and should listen to it every day. I feel like the author wrote it just for me. I worry about most of the things he mentioned. Very helpful and highly recommended for anyone who worrie...

    When I see the name MAX LUCADO my interest is captured. When I ran across ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING: FINDING CALM IN A CHAOTIC WORLD, I ordered it immediately. I have run across many in my life that struggle with anxiety. I think if we were honest, most of us do in one form or another, at di...

    Thought this was a real book on anxiety, instead it reduces a disease to some mumbo-jumbo Christian BS. If someone had cancer or diabetes would these same people tell you all you need is prayer? Doubtful ?? ...

    Is there a zero star option? I was unfamiliar with this author and picked up the book as a person of faith who found the title appealing. Let me sum up and save you the trouble: Lucado uses the Bible to shame and man-splain to you why your clinical anxiety disorder is invalid. Aban...

    FANTASTIC! I really needed this right now - my friend, who suggested it to me must have known that! The exact words I needed for the moment. Lucado is a master of taking the ordinary and making it Heavenly - challenging us to look upward and see the One who has it all under control. ...

    ?We rest in him, find our nourishment in him. His roof of grace protects us from storms of guilt. His walls of providence secure us from destructive winds. His fireplace warms us during the lonely winters of life. We linger in the abode of Christ and never leave.? This is classi...

    This book has a message worth hearing whether you are stressed out and need to calm down or as a reminder to remain living a calm life. Max Lucado keeps a sense of humor alongside the wisdom, I love his anecdotes which make the truths easier to remember and the overall tone is one o...

    Eh. It's popcorn reading with a total misunderstanding of anxiety as worry. Every example given is regarding propping up belief by staying committed to that belief no matter what. Sound simple? Sure, if all you are doing is worrying about external circumstances and it's impact on you.....

    This book is wonderful. The title "Anxious For Nothing" isn't a gentle scold on being anxious for no reason. The book acknowledges that there are many things in life that cause us anxiety. Rather, the book is about trusting God in such a way that gives Him control over our anxieties...

    I grabbed Anxious for Nothing on a whim when I saw the lovely cover at my library. I expected a moving self-help book to help with my anxiety, instead I got a repetitious, mediocre story. Lucado repeated the same scripture while making the same point throughout the book. As I began ...

    I flew through this one quickly during a lunch break before we recorded a podcast where one of our team members interviewed Lucado about anxiety -- it's a good read, a quick read, and nothing mind-blowing. There were some helpful, meaningful nuggets here, but it felt more like a "Hey, ...

    This book is more for people who haven't discovered Christianity or are very new to it. I didn't think it helped me other than saying we shouldn't worry because Jesus. Christians can have anxiety and it's more practical to tell us ways to deal versus not to worry. ...

    My mom?s group decided to read this together, and that is the only reason I finished this. This book speaks to Christians (which is fine, that?s who it?s written for), but really only takes 11 chapters to basically say ?take your worries to God in prayer.? Which is good advic...

    I think it's time I admit that I'm not going to finish this. I'm not finding it meaningful or interesting, and I'm tired of it sitting on my nightstand and judging me for not reading it. ...

    If you want to read/listen to a sermon about anxiety than you will enjoy this book, but I was wanting somehting more. I have never read a Max Lucado book, so maybe that is just his style. it wasn't bad, but I am not an overly religious person and didn't get what I was looking for in th...

    I found this audiobook on dealing with anxiety very uplifting. It comes at the problem from a very Christian perspective, saying that a lot of the time our anxiety is brought on by things beyond our control, and we basically need to focus on God. If you believe in a higher power, and h...

    I?ve read a number of Lucado?s books, and I?ve yet to be disappointed. This book was a bit shorter than I expected (and I would?ve loved it to have been longer!), but there is so much information to be gained in it that I took my time reading it. The overall message of this ...

    I believe that GABA works best for anxiety because it worked for me. I believe that anxiety is a biochemical problem which may be genetic or due to diet. I don't like Paul much so that didn't help since he quotes The Apostle Paul constantly. I have always felt that Paul hated women...

    I remember when I was first diagnosed with an anxiety disorder (which also was not long ago) I was angry with God. I knew people suffered from it but, I automatically due to the severity of it blamed God and thought ?what did I do to deserve this!? Now looking back, that was a norm...

    I loved the book. Sometimes Christians can be very hard on Christians that struggle with anxiety. Saying things such as, just pray more, or trust God more. This book is written from a perspective of understanding of those who struggle and key ways to overcome them by changing your thou...
