A revolutionary approach to anxiety! A 12-year anxiety veteran offers wisdom, encouragement, and resources for anxious Christians.
Do you struggle with anxiety or know someone who does? Award-winning Christian author Pierce Taylor Hibbs shows that we've been approaching our anxiety the wrong way. It's not a terror to avoid but a tool in God's hands. The author draws on his own experience in living with an anxiety disorder for over 12 years to present descriptions, theological discussion, and concrete resources for fellow anxiety sufferers. InStruck Down but Not Destroyed, you will learn how to . . .
Be confident in the spiritual purpose for your anxiety and suffering;
Inspect your own habits and behaviors in light of Scripture;
Accept your anxiety as a spiritual tool in the hands of God.
It's time for us to focus on the spiritual purposes God has for our anxiety. It's time for us to revel in the amazing truth that the best part of being struck down is realizing that we will never be destroyed, not with God on our side.
“We have come to expect the highest standards of Christian orthodoxy argued with remarkable clarity from Pierce Hibbs. Increasingly, though, his passion about facing the tough parts of life with ultimate confidence bring a dimension with them impossible to fabricate. They come to us with unusual honesty. I don’t believe I know of any writings quite like his. Pastoral, practical and profoundly biblical, every Christian will be rewarded by these journeys into suffering and grace.”
Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
“Hibbs’s writing—clear, crisp, and passionate—makes for an easy read. And yet behind that simplicity is a depth that comes from someone who has been in a ‘fellowship of Jesus’s suffering.’ When you meet a fellow traveler, like Pierce Taylor Hibbs, that has been through the valley of shadow of death, you want to sit down and listen. Hibbs will give you hope in the midst of your hard things.”
