Book Review: Fearless by Max Lucado

In Max Lucado's book Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear, Lucado examines thirteen of the most common causes of fear for Christians and provides a Biblical perspective for dealing with them.  In characteristic Lucado style, the book deals head on with issues such as "Fear of Disappointing God" to "Fear of Worst-Case Scenarios." Although the book is not terribly in-depth, I appreciate Lucado's reminders to turn my eyes back on the Savior in times of distress.  Lucado also emphasizes that while Jesus never promised Christians a comfortable life, "[w]e can trust Him.  'Everything will work out in the end.  If it's not working out, it's not the end'" (160).

Thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing a review copy of this book.
