Overview

Do circumstances control you? Do you worry about your next career move? Are you overworked or missing deadlines? Are you unsure of the next step? Life is full of problems that can bring us down. As Christians, however, we know that Jesus overcame the world, and by his power at work within us, we can as well. In Down, But Not Out, Wayne Mack brings biblical counsel to people suffering from worry or spiritual burnout—two major problems that knock us down. Other chapters treat “downers” such as self-pity, discontentment, discouragement, perplexity, and hopelessness.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. John MacArthur
This book is greatly needed and immensely helpful. It seems to me that far too many Christians live without relief from the troubles of life, or occasionally experience momentary peace. And some may make it barely above the line between pain and pleasure. But any of that is unnecessary for a Christian. There is a supernatural way to overpower trouble, to live in genuine contentment with a deep down peace and an unassailable joy. This is not some ambiguous secret, nor is it reserved for those who have more positive circumstances. Every believer can enjoy triumph in trouble. In fact, that is what God wants for us. Wayne Mack shows us how.
Dr. Steve Viars Senior Pastor
What a timely message for a troubled age. Wayne Mack writes with the wisdom of a seasoned counselor and the knowledge of a biblical scholar. This book will be a great blessing to people in trouble and those trying to help them.
LOU PRIOLO
Down but Not Out is written with the theological integrity and biblical practicality that you have come to expect from one of the world’s foremost Christian Counselors. This is a book that worriers (and those who want to help them) have been waiting for.
JOHN D. STREET
If you are a Christian looking for practical answers from Scripture when the circumstances of life have hammered you into the ground, you must read this book. If you love the Bible, this will be a breath of fresh air.
RONALD A. ALLCHIN SR.
Down but Not Out will be an encouragement to those who are ‘down’ to look ‘up’ to find answers in God and his sufficient Word. I was struck with its relevance to the contemporary ‘downs’ my counselees face everyday.
