Fearless by Max Lucado - Book Reveiw

True to Max Lucado's rich visual storytelling style of writing, he draws the reader quickly into his book, Fearless, with a real life story. Fearless is a state of being that God offers to all of His children and Max Lucado begins in Chapter One asking, "What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?...Can you imagine a life with no fear?" This is the possibility in Jesus that Max Lucado writes about in the next chapters of his book, and he is serious about your ability to live fearless practically day in and day out, even in the fears of today (debt, terrorist, swine flu, politics, foreclosures and job loss).

He grabs the reader with his talent to make the Bible come to life as he reveals the treasures many of us miss in a quick Bible reading. He teaches that "Fear corrodes our confidence in God’s goodness." and "We begin to wonder if love lives in heaven" since so many terrible things are happening all around us. This book is packed full of Scripture that commands us to not be afraid, lending to the authoritative teaching-style which convinces and convicts the reader to trust God and stop fearing.

Even the seasoned Bible Student will glean new insights into areas of their life that fear still lingers, making this book a valuable read for a wide audience. His book would be a wonderful book to give as a gift because fear is a universal topic we all experience, and everyone will be able to relate and grow in faith as he/she reads Fearless.
