For the past ten years, I've been trying to think about what it means to have anxiety and to be Christian. And being a Christian wrestling with mental health in the modern world can be confusing, to say the least.
What I found I wanted in the depths of anxiety was a way to see light again.
I found it in the psalms‚ especifically, one of the simplest and shortest of the psalms. I found answers that helped move me away from the edges of anxiety towards the comfort of the Lord.
In this brief book, Guan Un turns away from superficial answers and quick fixes, looking instead to Psalm 131. He offers Christians dealing with anxiety disorders‚ and those who love these fellow believers‚ biblical truths to cling to when thoughts, feelings and life seem overwhelming.
Guan lives in Sydney's inner west with Mary, two kids and a red dog. He studied at Moore College in order to write books, which confused just about everybody. Now, he's a programmer and a writer of fiction and books like this one, and happily spends a lot of time behind a keyboard. He gets excited about a well-told story, a well-turned sentence, and a well-baked custard tart.
