Fearless by Max Lucado (Review)

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn't it be great to walk out?

Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, or doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, where you could trust more and fear less.

Can you imagine your life without fear?

Something I've always enjoyed about Max Lucado's writing is his humor and his transparency. In the writing of Fearless, Max shares personal stories of some of the fears he's dealt with in the not so long ago past. Lucado gives instruction on how to identify hidden fears based on our responses in situations and how to deal with those fears accordingly.

In a world that is in constant upheaval, fear is an enemy that is constantly trying to bombard every aspect of our beings. In this scripturally sound book, Max Lucado tackles those deep down fears that can render us spiritually and emotionally crippled.

You can order Fearless directly from Thomas Nelson Publishing, or if you have an Amazon account, you can go here to order. There is also an audio book as well as a curriculum available.
