Fearless by Max Lucado

Life is filled with fear. However, in his book Fearless, author Max Lucado helps people deal with fear in a biblical way. He points out the difference between fear of God and fear of this world. He uses Scripture and stories of everyday people to offer encouragement and comfort in a fear-filled life. He reminds us that God wants us to be people of courage, and He provides the tools for us to live out that courage. Lucado walks the reader through thirteen areas in which life tries to rob us of our courage and happiness, areas in which most of us struggle to let go of our fear. Then he reminds us that Christ can take away those fears, because He is in charge of the ending. Lucado writes in a style that makes it easy to understand and relate to. His writing flows through stories and examples, and he fills the reader with encouragement to live the way God intends: fearless.
