Expand your knowledge and gain valuable resources to aid in your interactions with Christians suffering from anxiety disorders in today's stressful world! "Martha, Martha": How Christians Worry bridges the rift between psychology and theology and is an invaluable tool for educating the Christian community in recognizing anxiety disorders. This volume, suited to both clergy and lay persons, accomplishes this through clarification of terminology, information, and appropriate application of Scripture. "Martha, Martha" uses fictional narratives in tandem with current psychiatric diagnostic information to help the reader understand anxiety disorders and how they may manifest in personal or church life. Each chapter discusses a specific disorder and provides information as to how Christians or the church can help in dealing with and restoring afflicted individuals. Highly regarded resources in the professional mental health and Christian sectors are listed. Disorders that the reader will learn to recognize and respond to include: obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) panic disorder post-traumatic stress disorder social phobia generalized anxiety disorder depression premenstrual syndrome (PMS) Written by a true "Christian psychiatrist," this is a lucid and gentle volume that should be read by all Christians who have a concern for the effectiveness and inclusiveness of their ministry. "Martha, Martha": How Christians Worry will be a comfort to those who feel that their suffering is shameful or sinful and are unwilling to seek help from secular or atheistic practitioners. Dr. Eng skillfully interweaves insightful professional understanding of each "worry" with scriptural quotes directed toward that issue. The result is a much-needed synthesis, making psychological and theological disciplines allies rather than antagonists.
