Running Scared

Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest

One of the haunting dilemmas of the human condition is that fear haunts so much of our 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.” Author Ed Welch investigates the roots of fear in the human soul and the ramifications of living in the grip of anxiety, worry, and dread.

Welch encourages readers to discover for themselves that the Bible is full of words of comfort for fearful people. Covering 30 topics, Welch offers sound biblical theology and moment-by-moment, thoughtful encouragement for those on the heart and mind battlefield of rampant, panic-stricken responses.

Welch’s focus especially on “the rest of God” will lead readers to Scripture for invariable constancy, stalwart care, and robust comfort, instead of hitting the default switch response of human independence, control, and self-protectiveness. Running Scared affirms that, through Scripture, God speaks directly to our fears about:

  • Money and possessions
  • People and their judgments
  • Death, pain, and punishment
