Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

Fearless
Imagine Your Life Without Fear
By Max Lucado

I’ve heard there are 365 verses about fear in the Bible, one for each day of the year. Max Lucado only tackles twelve fears in his new book, Fearless, Imagine Your Life Without Fear.

Lucado is known for his easy reading, but poetic style of writing. He doesn’t write poetry, although a poem is inserted in this volume, Lucado does have a unique way of putting words together. His style is enough to sooth the fears.

Tackling fears such as violence or not protecting our children is rather common. This book even covers the fear of being grabbed by a gorilla or falling from the sky with a broken parachute. No fear is unreasonable, and Lucado doesn’t dismiss whatever may well up in the reader.

Fearless isn’t a trust-God-all-will-be-well book either. Lucado admits bad things happen to good people. But, it isn’t necessary to live our life in fear of those bad things. He points out there is so much more good in this broken world.

Bible verses are sprinkled through the text. They are not used a cure-all, but as a reality check that we are not alone in our fears. At the same time, he points out that fear can be overcome by faith in a God who has defeated the master of fear,Satan.

The soothing words along with the reality of common, and not so common, fears makes Fearless a book to keep for later reference. It will remain in my library for future reference and future study.

This is a book to purchase in pairs, one for yourself, and one for a friend.
