Publisher's Summary

Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Is irrational anxiety your constant companion? Let God help you win the war on worry and receive the lasting peace of Christ.

We all encounter anxiety, but we don’t have to let worry and fear control our lives. Anxious for Nothing, from New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado, provides a roadmap for battling with and healing from anxiety. Anxious for Nothing invites listeners to delve into Philippians 4:6-7 — the most highlighted passage of any book on the planet according to Amazon — “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

In this audiobook, Max will help you:

  • Celebrate God’s goodness.
  • Ask God for help.
  • Leave your concerns with God.
  • Meditate on good things.
  • Stop letting anxiety rule the day. 

Join Max on the journey to true freedom and experience more joy, clarity, physical renewal, and contentment by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Fabulous book!

Max Lucado is a wonderful speaker and author. It seems the more I read anything he has written the more I love his writing and revelation. It’s like you’re speaking to a loving father, full of relevant wisdom for right now! With equal parts easy listening, eloquence and warmth... Enjoy!!

It was a much needed point, in the right direction.

It was a good book, simple, not too long. I like that it takes than 4 hours to get through it. I feel that I’m much more likely to make time to listen to it again. Books like this, should always be read or listened to a few times, as you’re much more likely to retain all of the information. Between the stories, scripture and metaphors I would recommend it to people struggling with anxiety and those feeling a little lost when it comes to faith in Christ and positive outcomes.

great book

There were so many inspirational and biblical points from this book, that I just want to post pages of the book around the house. I have been dealing with anxiety for several years and am slowly making progress with it and this book was just what I needed to keep me moving in the right direction!

Anxious For Nothing

The best thing I take away from this book is to "Think About What You Think About", "As A Man Thinks so is he". The problem is not the problem, but how you see/look at it.

Thank you Max Lucado!

I really enjoyed this book! As someone who suffers from anxiety disorders that seem to take a hold over me and my life, I enjoyed this fresh perspective and encouraging advice on how to not let it win. This is my first Lucado book and it will NOT be my last!! :)

Provided Comfort in a Time of Need

I am a spiritual person, not religious. But this audiobook was just what I needed to help put things back into perspective. The narrator had a soothing voice so it made it easy to listen to.

Great read!

The words in this book, like the words in the Bible, gives us all hope. The directions to life are the passages from the Bible. All we have to do is read the directions but sometimes we think we can handle it alone. Sometimes we are too stubborn to ask for directions. Loved the book.

A blessed work.

We are commanded in God’s word to be anxious for nothing. This beautiful book, which Ben Holland reads as beautifully as Max Lucado has written it, points us in the direction of achieving this state ,!where, instead of being anxious over the storm we find ourselves in, we can focus on our blessings , find ourselves with a thankful heart and achieve the double portion.

Brilliant!

I cant stop listening. Max Lucado challenges and encourages me. I was driving back from work two days ago, listening to this book and I felt I would love to go up to him look him in the eyes and just say thank you. Max quotes Bible verses and tells real stories that show their application.
