We are living in an age where anxiety is rampant and in the Christian life the Bible warns that the devil is like a roaring lion looking for his next victim. One of his key tactics is to attack your faith in God by producing fear. Fear left unchecked produces a flight response creating anxiety leading to panic attacks.
Dr. Robert Bakss has had 24 years of personal experience with mental illness as he has supported his wife, Jenny, in her struggle with Bipolar Disorder. He is no stranger to the effects of anxiety and panic attacks and has helped his wife and many others manage and overcome the debilitating effects of anxiety.
Anxiety and panic attacks are the unwelcome visitors many of us can do without. The dread of having an attack is an awful feeling and often compounds the problem. At times coming out of seemingly nowhere, panic attacks transform the ordinary world of everyday life into a nightmare of anxiety and suffering. Dr. Bakss biblically addresses this issue and provides theological and practical strategies to deal with anxiety.
