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 of hope. I love the way each line of the key verse is broken into practical, tangible ways to live it out and counter anxiety. The acronym C.A.L.M. sums it up beautifully.
I am inspired by the premise of the book, those ...more
The overall message of this book is based on what Paul said in Philippians 4:6: “Be anxious for nothing.” And if someone had a reason to be anxious, it was Paul! Yet, he was able to live in joy. If he can do it, anyone can. Lucado offers tips and encoura ...more
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. Abandoned at 70% through during a diatribe about how God tells us how to avoid anxiety, and if you’re still anxious, you just aren’t listening closely enough.

This is classic Max Lucado. I mean that in a good way. It's warm, heartfelt, and comforting for an anxious guy like me. Nothing mind-blowing or paradigm-shifting, just good reminders about trusting God. This is pure comfort food.
Be Anxious for Nothing

Anxiety is one of fastest growing disorders everyone at some point in their life has or have suffered from Anxiety. Some suffer daily others every once in awhile. Anxiety can take over our lives making us sick. Our body's go numb, our head spins, our chest tightens and hurts making us feel as though we are having a heart attack.
Why do we l ...more
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 and leaves us exactly that...anxious for nothing. "Because the Lord is near, we can be anxious for nothing."
This is my first Max Lucado book, so I was a bit surprised at its actual brevity; only 152 pages of narrative ...more
