Worry is an inevitable part of being a person and having responsibilities, but for some it can be paralyzing, an impediment to living one’s life. It’s those afflicted by that more pernicious form of anxiety that Anglican vicar Van Der Hart and psychiatrist Waller seek to help with this book. After exploring various causes of worry (and its pernicious tendency to beget more of same), the authors explain how to deal with uncertainty and crises of faith, how worrying can detrimentally affect one’s health, and how to better cope when worry arises. Rather than preach from case studies, the authors share their own experiences with worry and how they’ve dealt with it. Given Van Der Hart and Waller’s different backgrounds, there’s plenty of information that will appeal to Christians and nonbelievers alike, including a compendium of “Prayers and Contemplations for Times of Anxiety,” an appendix of relevant secular and religious texts, and a glossary of useful terms. Numerous practical exercises throughout the book help to reinforce their message. (Feb. 5)
