Item Description...
Using fictional narrtatives and current psychiatric diagnostic information, this book educates you as part of the Christian community in recognizing anxiety disorders that may be present in your life or in your church. Seminary and pastoral students, church leaders, Christian medical and mental health professionals, psychiatrists, pyscologists, therapists, and social workers interested in the integration of psychology and religion will discover how to help people afflicted with anxiety disorders, and sufferers themselves will find new and effective ways of coping with these challenges.

Publishers Description
Expand your knowledge and gain valuable resources to aid in your interactions with Christians suffering from anxiety disorders in today's stressful world "Martha, Martha" How Christians Worry bridges the rift between psychology and theology and is an invaluable tool for educating the Christian community in recognizing anxiety disorders. This volume, suited to both clergy and lay persons, accomplishes this through clarification of terminology, information, and appropriate application of Scripture."Martha, Martha" uses fictional narratives in tandem with current psychiatric diagnostic information to help the reader understand anxiety disorders and how they may manifest in personal or church life. Each chapter discusses a specific disorder and provides information as to how Christians or the church can help in dealing with and restoring afflicted individuals. Highly regarded resources in the professional mental health and Christian sectors are listed. Disorders that the reader will learn to recognize and respond to include: obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) panic disorder post-traumatic stress disorder social phobia generalized anxiety disorder depression premenstrual syndrome (PMS)Written by a true "Christian psychiatrist," this is a lucid and gentle volume that should be read by all Christians who have a concern for the effectiveness and inclusiveness of their ministry. "Martha, Martha" How Christians Worry will be a comfort to those who feel that their suffering is shameful or sinful and are unwilling to seek help from secular or atheistic practitioners. Dr. Eng skillfully interweaves insightful professional understanding of each "worry" with scriptural quotes directed toward that issue. The result is a much-needed synthesis, making psychological and theological disciplines allies rather than antagonists.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Integrated Theology and Psychiatry  Mar 15, 2003
Many faith-based groups are afraid that use of psychiatry will undermine their theology, or be a pharmacologic cover up for a deeper issue. Elaine Eng's book beautiful integrates solid medical principle's of psychiatry, the appropriate and judicious use of medications, the value of cognitive behavioral therapy (Counseling), and the biblically based world view. I have given away copies of this book to patients, friends, and colleagues as a gentle way to understanding their own problems - and how they might find help for their concerns. The believable case studies help the reader identify with material, and hopefully, will lead to some self discovery about what forms of therapy will help them most.
Great Book for Anybody  Dec 19, 2001
Wonderfull book, with great information...a great read, and a sure recomendation to anyone.
A Review By A Social Worker  Jun 17, 2000
This is a book (chiefly about anxiety disorders) that can be helpful to a wide audience. It uses a vignette to describe in conversational language the various types of anxiety disorders. It then gives a discussion of the disorder in more technical terms, but still quite understandable by a lay reader. I especially liked the end of each chapter where there are applications for ministers, the church and friends.

The book addresses the guilt associated with anxiety in the Christian culture. (How can I be anxious when I'm trusting God?) It has a gentle doctrinal touch that is inclusive of virtually all Christians. It's a hopeful, positive book.

I'd like to see a sequel on depressive disorders.
