Fearless by Max Lucado

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?

I have always loved Max Lucado, so when Thomas Nelson offered to send me his new book to review I immediately said, "YES!!" I've always loved to listen to Max (do you mind if I call him Max?) on Upwords, and later on the children's books he wrote. Whenever I read a Max Lucado book, I hear his voice reading to me.

Fearless, is everything you would expect in a Max Lucado book. It is Bible-based and Scripturally sound. It is full of real life examples and word pictures that we can all relate to. Fearless challenges us to stop being afraid and start living a life of faith. It will make all the difference in our lives.

If you visit Fearless Times, you can submit a fear-related question to Max or share your Fearless life.
