When God Becomes Real shares Brian Johnson's descent into anxiety and panic disorder, and how he discovered God's presence in the darkest night. After struggling with panic and anxiety from a very young age, Brian had been panic free for most of his adult life. Then, in the most successful season of his career, he suffered a debilitating break-down. In the midst of that attack, Brian gathered his children and said, "This is when God becomes real." Over the course of the next year, as waves of panic crushed him, Brian only found relief through worship and the reading of the Word. As he examined the panic of his youth, Brian found that the darkness of his own anxiety was an invitation to find the real presence of God. Come with Brian on this journey as he invites you into an experience of God's presence, even in the darkest hour.

    I have no words! This is truly an amazing testimony of the goodness of our father. Thank you Brian for being so willing to share your testimony. I have always loved Bethel church and music. It is so very true that every good thing comes with a price. I am a believer in prophetic worship and will believe with you all until we meet our savior. Thank you for this ministry that has been a blessing to life.

  • Love this book!

    I have to start by saying I’m a nearly 40 year old woman, and I’ve never read an entire book...until today. I couldn’t put the book down. I experienced the same nightmare in 2014, and God healed me the exact same way. It was as though I had written this book myself. It brought me to tears remembering the horrific ordeal I experienced for over a year, but this book was a beautiful reminder of what the Lord has done in me because of it. I wouldn’t trade the suffering for anything now! I’m so thankful Brian Johnson wrote this book, and I pray it will encourage many people to know there is hope in Jesus Christ... no matter how dark it or hopeless it seems!

  • Filled with honesty and hope

    By Chris B from Atlanta
    When God Becomes Real is an extremely raw and honest look into the life, struggles, and victories of one of the most prolific worship leaders of our time. Brian exposes how pain and fear when left untreated can lead to what feels like hopelessness and how God can redeem it in a beautiful way. This is a must read!!
  • Raw, Honest Truth

    As someone who has also experienced (is experiencing) anxiety, Brian’s story is an incredible encouragement and testimony to the power of God in our darkest hour. His story is honest and vulnerable, a must read for anyone experiencing anxiety or panic.
