book review: "Fearless: imagine your life without fear"
Max Lucado’s latest book “Fearless: imagine your life without fear” is a pertinent title for today due to the economic uncertainties, conflicts in areas of the world, and fear of changes and just the unknowns in life. Lucado writes in a conversational style, making this book an easy read; however what is written is thought provoking, so it is not a book you can fly right through while reading. Lucado ties together personal anecdotes, others’ stories, how own insight, and verses from the Bible to portray the message that he hopes the reader will gain from reading this book. As is stated on the back cover, “Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons fro fear…Organized and rude, fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?” This work will encourage you to think about fear, what causes you to fear and how this fear can be lessened by faith and trusting God.
