"You must have a place to which you can go in your heart, your mind, or your house, almost everyday, where you do not owe anyone and where no one owes you--a place that simply allows for the blossoming of something new and promising."
- Joseph Campbell

Fearless by Max Lucado
Author: Max Lucado
Hardcover: 224 pages Publisher: Thomas Nelson (September 8, 2009) ISBN-10: 0849921392
Most of us have some fear in our lives, especially in today's volatile world. There's the chance we'll lose our job, our house, our livelihood, even our family. Fear is always with us, it's the name of the game: LIFE.
Max Lucado reminds us in his new book, Fearless, that where there is fear, there cannot be peace; there cannot be happiness; there cannot be creativity; there cannot be good health; none of the good life that God wishes for each of us.
Jesus was always encouraging us to "be not afraid" because He knew the dangers of fear, and many or most of Jesus' words are noted in this book. Mr. Lucado takes these scriptures and invites us to use faith as a tool in conquering our fears.
*Why Are We Afraid
*My Child Is In Danger
*I'm Sinking Fast
*There's A Dragon in My Closet
*This Brutal Planet
*Scared To Death
*What If Things Get Worse?
In the very back of the book there is a nice size discussion guide that can be used by individuals or groups, which cover three lessons:
I would say this is a must read for most people in today's hectic world.
