Join us as we celebrate the release of Charles Marsh’s new book, Evangelical Anxiety. This in-person event will be free and open to the public. We recommend arriving early for the best seating.
About the Book: In this spiritual memoir, Charles Marsh tells the story of his struggles with mental illness, explores the void between the Christian faith and scientific treatment, and forges a path toward reconciling these divergent worlds. For years, Marsh suffered panic attacks and debilitating anxiety. As an Evangelical Christian, he was taught to trust in the power of God. While his Christian community resisted therapy, Marsh eventually knew he needed help. To alleviate his suffering, he made the bold decision to seek treatment. Evangelical Anxiety helps us look beyond the stigma that leaves too many people in pain and offers Evangelicals a way forward to find the help they need while remaining true to their beliefs.
About the Author: Charles Marsh is a professor of religious studies at the University of Virginia and director of the Project on Lived Theology. He is the author of numerous books, including God’s Long Summer, which won the 1998 Grawemeyer Award in Religion, and the acclaimed biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Strange Glory, a PEN Award finalist. He is also the recipient of awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Academy in Berlin, and the Lilly Endowment. He lives with his wife, Karen Wright Marsh, in Charlottesville, Virginia.
