Fearless by Max Lucado Book Review

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

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?

Being asked to review Max Lucado's book Fearless couldn't have come at a better time for me.

Lately it seems that I have been consumed by the very fears expressed in the above blurb.

Between a global economic crisis, numerous deaths (especially those of celebrities so highly publicized), and, in my opinion, a President that seems intent on destroying all the things for which American stands; and my mind has been filled with worry, frustration, and fear.

Max Lucado takes each of these fears, chapter by chapter, and teaches you how to understand your fear - the root of your emotion - and then how to relieve those fears by turning to faith.

There is not a (grown) soul out there today that hasn't experienced these emotions, whether past or present, and will benefit greatly from the lesson taught within Fearless.
