Product Description

Scripture's cure for the worry epidemic

Do you struggle with worry or anxious thoughts on a regular basis? Does your mind get fixated on the same concern over and over? Do you know you should stop worrying but repeatedly fail to do so?

How to Overcome Worry presents a biblical and practical strategy for this exact problem. Dr. Winfred Neely, who has experienced his fair share of anxiety-inducing circumstances, walks you through Philippians 4:6–7 to help you:

  • Understand the difference between concern and worry
  • Use prayer as a means of grace to overcome worry
  • Cultivate gratitude and thanksgiving as an antidote to worry
  • Navigate changing seasons and circumstances without falling into worry
  • Employ practical strategies for experiencing the peace of God

Worry is one of the top issues in our world today, even among Christians, and this concise and biblical approach will offer real solutions. In His Word, God tells us to stop worrying, pray about everything, and expect His peace. This is a true promise of Scripture, and this book will help you to lay hold of it.

About the Author

Winfred Neely
WINFRED NEELY (B.A., D.Min. Trinity International University; M.A. Wheaton) is currently working towards an advanced research degree in Old Testament at the University of Bristol, England. He is an ordained minister of the Gospel and a full time professor of hermeneutics, homiletics, and pastoral studies at Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Prior to joining the faculty at Moody, Winfred served churches in the City of Chicago and is currently interim pastor of the Judson Baptist Church in Oak Park, IL. He brings to his ministry a global perspective, having served as a missionary/pastor in Senegal, West Africa for nine years. He is also involved in a global equipping ministry, speaking and conducting workshops and training events at churches and conferences in the US and abroad. He and his wife Stephne have been married for forty years and have four adult children and nine grandchildren. He takes acting classes from time to time and is an ardent fan of science fiction films such as Star Wars and Star Trek.


In a world filled with so much stress, fear, violence, and uncertainty—is it really possible to be "anxious for nothing"? Dr. Neely tackles head-on why these words aren't meant for someone else or another "more peaceful" time. He shows through great stories and biblical insights how God's Word is exactly what you and I need to face up to worry and fear—today—and how you can even put an unshakable foundation under your life-story, even in a world that's shaking apart. It's quick to read, filled with hope and "I get that" examples. You need this book, like I did, to move fear for all that "could happen" to our children and country and world back into God's hands and put peace back into our hearts, today.

Worry is endemic. Yes, we do have a lot of things to worry about in our world today. Neely, in his inimitable pastoral style, puts our hearts to rest as he points us to our God, our fortress, our solid rock. This work is biblically sound, theologically astute, practically helpful, and spiritually warm. Don't worry . . . read Neely!

Worry is like a flea on the back of a dog—it's not welcome but it attaches itself to any willing carrier. We are all well practiced in worry. We are not well rehearsed in overcoming worry. Neely's book provides the biblical information and practical advice to experience the peace of God in these trying times. I commend it to you. Start reading and stop worrying.

J. Paul Nyquist, PhD
