Fearless by Max Lucado

This book is so timely… so on the mark… from the moment I opened it I was reminded what an incredible author Max Lucado is and how his voice is a soothing one in times that feel uncertain…  ~ Sheila

FearlessEach 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 tend to forget how great an author Max Lucado is.  That is… I tend to forget until I pick up one of his books, like this one… and “oh yeah”… Max writes like you are sitting in a coffee shop enjoying a wonderful conversation with a close friend over mocha lattes.

In times that seem like no ones job is a surety….  friends and family alike are struggling with finances and fears…. Max writes a book that reminds of us how often the Bible talks about “Do Not Fear”

Feed your fears, and your Faith will starve.

Feed your Faith, and your fears will.

Page 74… Fearless by Max Lucado

I really enjoyed this book and the reminders that worry does not add one second to our lives.  In typical Max Lucado style, this book is peppered with his life stories that apply to why we should not fear, why we should be reminded and know that all is in God’s Hands.  We (I) need to keep our (my) Faith in God.

We all have fears in our life… if we wear them on the outside or hide them deep within us like a disease eating away at us from the inside out…  (see the chapter on There’s a Dragon in My Closet).

There is a wonderful discussion guide in the back of this book that can help you break this down even more and really look closely at each chapter and how it can apply in your own life.

This is a book that I can refer to again and again… and I will.  You can purchase your copy of this book here.

  1. Wow, Sheila! Congratulations on your 100th review. What a landmark event.

    This sounds like a very powerful book, and I’m a great believer in conquering fears through changing our attitudes…and sometimes by taking some kind of positive action.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
