The Weekly Hit List: August 10, 2012

Good News for Anxious Christians by Phillip Cary was reviewed on the Patheos blog Mind Over Media.

“There are at least two reasons to read Phillip Cary’s Good News for Anxious Christians: to help you think about what being ‘guided’ by the Holy Spirit means, and to think about the problem of pain in greater depth.

“Written for his students, Cary’s goal is to remind us that Christianity is a message of Good News about Jesus Christ rather than a requirement that we experience a certain emotion or receive some form of internal message from God.

“Additionally, his chapter on suffering is good enough (the best in the book, as far as I’m concerned) to merit special attention.”
