1. Spiritual Gifts: A Synopsis

2. The Christian and Anxiety (44 pp. - $4.00)

From the Opening Chapter

The experience of anxiety is common and universal. It is not an emotion restricted to the economically deprived or to the politically oppressed. Anxiety is an inescapable part of the human condition, for life on all its levels, from the international and governmental to the domestic and the personal, is marked with uncertainty, perplexity, and stress. Many may deny their personal anxiety, or at least the intensity of it (even to themselves) for a variety of reasons, such as, the desire to avoid embarrassment, the sense of pride, the fear of rejection, or the threat and unease of vulnerability. Notwithstanding, nearly everyone experiences anxiety to some degree. Its occurrence is disturbing and debilitating. Its persistence is crippling. Adler writes, "Anxiety is an extraordinarily widespread trait. It accompanies an individual from earliest childhood to old age, it embitters his life to a marked degree, keeps him from all human contacts, and destroys his hope of building a peaceful life, or of making fruitful contributions to the world" (Human Nature, 186). As long as daily living is characterized by struggle, strife, and suffering, the anxiety experience is an inevitability. While living in this fallen world, the Christian is also subject to anxiety. This booklet is designed to help the Christian understand and deal with his or her anxiety. This booklet will be of particular benefit to those caring individuals who want to help those who, unfortunately, are counted among the anxious.
