Fearless, by Max Lucado
Through his challenging writing, New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado steps forward and offers true peace in the midst of the disturbing issue of fear in our society.
Lucado addresses our real-time, twentieth century fears. Yes, he says, we are facing layoffs, downturns, disease, and terrorism. “Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop.” Then, he warns of falling into the prison of fear. Lucado asks the thought-provoking question, “Can you imagine your life without fear?”
Lucado goes to the heart of the matter and says, “The antidote to the fear epidemic? Trust. If we trust God more, we can fear less.” While to some, this may seem simplistic, Lucado goes point by point, specifically showing Jesus’ answers to all of our human fears…”for God has not given us a spirit of fear.” (2 Tim. 1:7) As a person who is prone to worry, when Lucado stated that “fear corrodes our confidence in God’s goodness,” I knew that this book was one I wanted to study!
I loved this book. With the marvelous personal stories, I found myself close to tears several times. I appreciate that this isn’t just a “feel good” book, but has skillful, specific, well-researched, biblical answers to how to deal with our fears. The book is almost textbook style, with each chapter dealing with a specific fear, such as “Fear of not protecting my kids” and “Fear that God is not real” I highly recommend this book.
