Book Review - Fearless

"Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear", by Max Lucado, is a book that I needed to read. What would my life really be like without fear, worry and dred? Max Lucado teaches us how to use the teachings of Jesus Christ to deal with fear and life a free and rewarding life.

"Fear not." Those simple words are the basis of this book. Jesus said those words many times as he taught and ministered to people. This book examines many kinds of fear and then attempts to answer the question; "What would Jesus do?"

There is no magic formula for making feelings of fear go away. Prayer, reading the Bible and fellowship with other Christians will help us face and overcome our fears. We are not alone and we should not be ashamed of our fears.

Jesus said, "Take courage, I am here". (Matt. 14:27 NLT) I believe those words and I will make them my motto.

There is a study guide at the end of the book for individual or group use. I plan on going back and really working on the issues presented in this book. I can only imagine a life without fear - this book is a wonderful resource for making a "no fear" life a reality.

  1. Janette,
    I have a ring that says Fear Not. I got it from my church and wear it as a reminder. I've had so many blessings and just wonder how much MORE He has intended for me that I've missed due to fear!

    Here's my review - Fearless
