From 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.
