Down But Not Out
How to Get Up When Life Knocks you Down
Do circumstances control you? Do you worry about your next career move? Are you over-worked or missing deadlines? Are you unsure of the next step? Life is full of problems that can bring us down. As Christians, however, we know that Jesus overcame the world, and by His power at work within us, we can as well.
In Down, but Not Out, Wayne Mack brings biblical counsel to people suffering from worry or spiritual burnout—two major problems that knock us down. Other chapters treat “downers” such as self-pity, discontentment, discouragement, perplexity, and hopelessness.
“This book is greatly needed and immensely helpful. It seems to me that far too many Christians live without relief from the troubles of life, or occasionally experience momentary peace. And some may make it barely above the line between pain and pleasure. But any of that is unnecessary for a Christian. There is a supernatural way to overpower trouble, to live in genuine contentment with a deep down peace and an unassailable joy. This is not some ambiguous secret, nor is it reserved for those who have more positive circumstances. Every believer can enjoy triumph in trouble. In fact, that is what God wants for us. Wayne Mack shows us how.”
— Dr. John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA
“What a timely message for a troubled age. Wayne Mack writes with the wisdom of a seasoned counselor and the knowledge of a biblical scholar. This book will be a great blessing to people in trouble and those trying to help them.”
— Dr. Steve Viars, Senior Pastor, Faith Baptist Church, Lafayette, IN
“Down, but Not Out is written with the theological integrity and biblical practicality that you have come to expect from one of the world’s foremost Christian counselors. This is a book that worriers (and those who want to help them) have been waiting for.” — Lou Priolo, author of Danger Signs of an Unhealthy Dating Relationship and The Heart of Anger
