Stress

Full Product Description

Discover and live a Christian response to a universal problem.

We long for control, but cannot attain it We aim for perfection, but it keeps eluding us We want to be productive and creative, but if we're honest, we spend too much time on unfocused, mind-numbing activity

No wonder we're stressed. But God is not stressed. He knows the end from the beginning. All things are under his wise and sovereign control. However, the glorious world that he made is in rebellion against him. We desperately long for control, but we were never meant to live that way.

It is the author's conviction that it is only by realigning our desires and purposes with God's good plans that we can ultimately know relief from underlying stress.

The author writes as a Bible teacher,a caring pastor and also as a fellow sufferer who has road-tested the lessons in this book. He firmly believes that the best way to live the Christian life is by working out the practical implications of good Bible teaching.

Stress by Simon Vibert was published by IVP in June 2014 and is our 8658th best seller. The ISBN for Stress is 9781783591527.

Endorsements

'Stress is a killer and an inevitable part of modern living so we had better learn how to deal with it! But, as long as we are not overdosed with it, stress moves us into action in a way that is helpful. Simon's book is characteristically biblical and thoughtful and helps us to learn how to cope with stress as we see what the Bible teaches about it and how its subjects learn to cope.

This is an excellent and helpful resource written by one who is no stranger to the issue and has learned to cope through experience with a lively faith that has been tested and tried.' - Wallace and Lindsay Benn

'This book is a biblical roots, shoots and fruits tour of stress. The Bible is full of God's leaders getting stressed at his “stiff-necked” people. It's no surprise that today's pastors have it much the same – and so need to learn how to manage their own stress. Yet depression is the leading cause of ministers taking time off work. Those who seek to save others often need to save themselves as well!

The Bible also tells us what happens when we are out of tune with God's peace. The solution may start with getting right with God – but this book is also clear that a correct theology is not enough. The book's four “companions for the journey” are all model church members – keen, seemingly strong, competent, yet still struggling with their emotions.  In the field of mental distress, if nowhere else, theology must be applied, wrestled with, worked out.' - Dr Rob Waller, Consultant Psychiatrist in Scotland and a Director of Mind and Soul 

'It is ironic that stress-related illness seems to be on the increase, despite generally improved standards of living in recent decades. Church leaders often encounter stress in themselves and others.

Simon Vibert has drawn on his own experience as a vicar and theological educator, undergoing a stressful period, to help us to a better biblical understanding of stress and biblical approaches to coping with it. The book will be a help to those who suffer stress and those who minister to them.' - Andrew Wingfield Digby, vicar of St Andrew's, North Oxford, former founding Director of Christians in Sport

'For depth of biblical insight, meticulous research and a warm and personable no-guilt approach, Inter-Varsity Press is to be congratulated on bringing out this latest book by Dr Simon Vibert.

It should be required reading in colleges and seminaries on a wide scale. Further, Simon's winsome style will commend itself to all who look for personal encouragement and direction amid the stresses of today's complex society.' - Richard Bewes OBE, former Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place
