Down But Not Out: How to Get Up When Life Knocks You Down by Wayne Mack



About: Down But Not Out.
Do circumstances control you? Do you worry about your next career move? Are you overworked or missing deadlines? Are you unsure of the next step? Life is full of problems that can bring us down. As Christians, however, we know that Jesus overcame the world, and by his power at work within us, we can as well.

In Down, But Not Out, Wayne Mack brings biblical counsel to people suffering from worry or spiritual burnout—two major problems that knock us down. Other chapters treat "downers" such as self-pity, discontentment, discouragement, perplexity, and hopelessness.

"This book is greatly needed and immensely helpful. There is a supernatural way to overpower trouble, to live in contentment with a deep down peace and an unassailable joy. Every believer can enjoy triumph in trouble. In fact, that is what God wants for us. Wayne Mack shows us how."

John MacArthur

"What a timely message for a troubled age. Wayne Mack writes with the wisdom of a seasoned counselor and the knowledge of a biblical scholar. This book will be a great blessing to people in trouble and those trying to help them."

Steve Viars

"Down, but Not Out is written with the theological integrity and biblical practicality that you have come to expect from one of the world’s foremost Christian counselors. This is a book that worriers (and those who want to help them) have been waiting for."
