Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Overcoming anxiety is more than a possible dream; it is a central tenet of Christian spirituality," writes Gregory Popcak, a professional counselor. In God Help Me! This Stress Is Driving Me Crazy: Finding Balance Through God's Grace, Popcak draws on psychology and Roman Catholic tradition to help readers who are struggling with worry and pain. Popcak writes well and clearly, weaving his counselees' composite stories in with his own experiences (particularly gripping is the story of one annus horribilis when his family faced grave illness and terrible financial trouble). He provides concrete spiritual tools (e.g., using icons and medallions, or partaking of the sacraments of Eucharist, confession and anointing the sick) to remind readers of God's love for them and His power over their troubles.
