Item description for Be Not Anxious: Pastoral Care of Disquieted Souls by Allan Hugh Cole, Jr....

Anxiety is the constant companion of modern society, and Christians are in no way immune from its attack. It is unsurprising, then, that so many believers go to their church leaders for advice, help, and solace. This remarkably helpful little book draws on narrative approaches to theology and counseling to suggest how pastoral caregivers may effectively minister to anxious persons and help assuage their anxiety. Be Not Anxious provides pastors and caregivers with a basic grasp of anxiety, including how to identify those suffering from it and to understand what makes them anxious in the first place. Allan Cole then focuses both on cognitive-based methods and on common faith practices - church membership, frequent worship, prayer, Bible reading, service, and confession - showing how these may provide relief from anxiety. Cole argues that this common condition - the "disquieted soul" - is at base a spiritual condition that calls for spiritual attention. By addressing the roles of both psychiatry and ministry as co-liberators from anxiety, he leads the pastor and faith community in assisting such a souls to find rest.

Reviews - What do customers think about Be Not Anxious: Pastoral Care of Disquieted Souls?

Very clear review and guidance  Aug 16, 2009
This is a wonderful review of theological perspectives on anxiety, as well as some prominent perspectives from psychological theory. The books offers clearly written views on how pastors, and by extension "laity" can be helpfully involved in helping "disquieted souls" find comfort and strength in all the God offers and promises to us as Father, Son, and Spirit and in the church. As a "layperson," I am finding it to be excellent medicine for my own soul, and I am absolutely certain that it is giving me excellent helpful points of view that will make me of more help to others. Cole believes that pastors, and by implication other Christian helpers, can be of greatest help when we help others find their lives renewed by God's word and promises and the practices of the church, and makes clear that we should use our first language of the Christian story, of the Christian message, of God's ministry to us as Father, Son and Spirit, rather than trying to become psychologists and offering secular helping strategies. (Though he certainly allows that many forms of help can be of assistance depending on the circumstances, inasmuch as we are whole beings with many dimensions.)

Very sound scholarship yet practical, well reasoned, excellent guidance. Very strongly recommended.
