Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and bestselling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

Max is known for combining poetic storytelling and homespun humor with the heart of a pastor. All of his trade books began as sermon series at Oak Hills Church, and his sermons all begin with Max asking himself this question: “What can I say on Sunday that will still matter on Monday?” He’s been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, and “The Best Preacher in America” by Reader’s Digest.

Max’s books have sold more than 96 million copies in 56 languages worldwide with more than 145 million total products in print branded with his name and words. Max’s books regularly appear on bestseller lists, including The New York Times. His writing has also been featured in Bible studies, Bible commentaries, songs, greeting cards, and even plush toys.

Max and his wife Denalyn live in San Antonio, Texas and celebrated forty years of marriage in 2021. They have three grown daughters, three sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Those Who Struggle with Anxiety
By Kristin B. on October 18, 2017
I've been struggling with anxiety for a long time. Over the past year or so, I've turned more to religion to help me with everything in life because I get so much more from living life this way than anything else. I love to read and occasionally browse through some of the new releases and best sellers in Christian and Inspiration books. I saw this one and it looked like exactly what I needed to read. Since some of my friends like to read the same books I do, I opted to buy the hardcover version since I find some books more enjoyable to read in that format and they are so easy and convenient to lend out to others!

Anxious for Nothing is an 11-chapter book written to help you achieve a sense of calm while battling anxiety. It is mostly centered around Philippians 4:4-8, which contains the "most underlined passage in the Bible" and provides the "be anxious for nothing" theme in this book. These verses are mentioned many times and interpreted and analyzed for us to apply in our daily lives. A number of other verses are mentioned as well which help to support Max Lucado's writing. There are some facts included about anxiety and the "meat" of the book mostly discusses how you can turn to God with your anxiety.

In addition to the 11 chapters, there are questions for reflection for each chapter. The first section of the reflection questions is "Confront the Chaos," which asks questions to help you define, identify, and ponder some of the ideas discussed in the book. Next is "Choose Calm," which is more of an analysis and critical thinking section. These questions prompt you to dig deep. The final section is "Meditation," which is generally a prayer to sum up what you've just reflected upon. The final section of the book contains all of the Scriptures broken down by the chapters in the book and where they are located in the book. They also show which translation of the Bible was used.The book has a total of 222 pages.

I had been reading a different book when a friend shared that she was reading this book. I already had purchased it and decided to abandon the other book in favor of this one. I'm so glad I did! I haven't yet done the reflection questions although I've read some of the Scriptures at the back of the book. I took about three days to read the 11 chapters since I also took notes and wanted to ponder what I'd read. I felt like this book was speaking to me because I could relate to much of what was in it. I actually felt more calm while I was reading it because it's written with a calming tone, which I really enjoyed.

The other thing I really liked about this book is that I had participated in a Bible study this past summer that was based on the first chapter of Philippians. We also referred to other chapters in Philippians so I already knew the background of Paul's circumstances and how he was content with them. That experience allowed me to achieve a deeper understanding of finding calm during bouts of anxiety so I would recommend at least familiarizing yourself with Philippians at some point.

I've only read this book one time and I already gathered some knowledge and wisdom to use when I start to get anxious. I'm glad I bought this book because I will be going back through it many more times to do the reflection questions and to just study it again. I'm also considering getting [[ASIN:0310087317 Anxious for Nothing Study Guide: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World]]. In addition to this book, I bought [[ASIN:1400207495 Less Fret, More Faith: An 11-Week Action Plan to Overcome Anxiety]] in hopes that will help as well. I have a friend who already wants to borrow this book and others who are very interested in it as well! If you struggle with anxiety and want a Christian-based book to read, I very highly recommend this one. I'm glad I bought it because I will read it many times and, if you are like me, you will probably want your own copy too. I really enjoyed Max Lucado's writing and plan to check out some of his other books!
