In a time when we have so many questions about where our lives are headed Max Lucado releases his newest book Fearless. From the first chapter "Why Are We Afraid" to the conclusion he addresses many of the different fears that we face on a daily basis.
I've always believed there are no coincidences, so when this book arrived from Thomas Nelson Publishers just two days after my truck was stolen I immediately flipped through the chapters. Most notable to me at that time was the chapter "Fear of Violence" and I eagerly read through it. Rather than fill out the chapter with words I've heard a hundred times, Max Lucado starts off with this Bible verse - "Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul." - Matthew 10:28. I do realize that auto theft is a far cry from true violence, but I will also admit to feeling fear in the aftermath of the theft. Reading this chapter and specifically this verse helped me in so many ways to deal with my emotions.
I very highly recommend this book as it is not an overbearing "learn to deal with it" type of a book. The tone in Max Lucado's book is like that of a friend giving advice and being able to back it up with scripture.
