Fearless by Max Lucado

Expect your typical Max Lucado when you read Fearless.

This is, by no means, a bad thing. Lucado's gift is in his storytelling and using everyday situations to explain truths.

In Fearless, Lucado asks us to imagine our life without fear. What if we were to respond to all these bad issues: the economy, job loss, death, terrorism, etc... not with fear but with faith.

How should followers of Christ react to such life-altering scenarios?

You read through 14 fears:

Fear of Not Mattering
Fear of Disappointing God
Fear of Running Out
Fear of Not Protecting My Kids
Fear of Overwhelming Challenges
Fear of Worst-Case Scenarios
Fear of Violence
Fear of the Coming Winter
Fear of Life's Final Moments
Fear of What's Next
Fear that God is not Real
Fear of Global Calamity
Fear of God Getting Out of My Box

You won't find any major "ah - ha" moments where Lucado will blow your mind with some new and fresh teaching. But you will find the comfort, as you do in most of his books, that living a life in Christ is just the best possible choice.
