Brian Johnson's new book When God Becomes Real (Bethel Book Publishing), out today, journeys readers through the darkest times of his life as he battled a long jaunt with depression and anxiety head-on. The husband and father of four shares about the vitalness praise and worship served in ushering in the presence of God to fight the panic alongside scripture which was essential in his mind's renewal. Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Christine Caine and a host of others have supported the authentic tell-all.
"There's a major need. There's a lot of people that feel alone, that feel the anxiety and depression," Johnson shared with Fox News last week. "He's been real my whole life, but there's just something that happens when God rescues you and you know that you know that God did it. That's why I wrote my story so that people can use that as an example in life, encouraging everyone to run after God."
Johnson is also featured on VICTORY, the awaited new collection of music from Bethel Music. He will take part in 2019's nationwide "The Victory Tour" presented by Bethel Music with special guests Tasha Cobbs-Leonard and Housefires.
