Art Wright is joined by Jason and Dena Hobbs, authors of the new book, When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm (Kregel Publications, 2020). They discuss what anxiety is, the intersection of anxiety and faith, and how we can care for ourselves and others in this anxiety-prone time. It is a wonderful conversation, and the book is a fantastic resource for clergy, lay persons, and congregations.
