Fearless by Max Lucado

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read Max Lucado’s Fearless as part of Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Bloggers program. This book seeks to answer how in the midst of layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming we can make faith, not fear, our default reaction to threats.Max Lucado deals with a variety of fears common in our society and looks at how we can replace our fear with faith in God. Each chapter includes stories and bible verses to illustrate his points and the book is written in an easy to read and understand style.I had no major disagreement with the contents of this book but there was nothing that was new either. When reading something like this I would look to be challenged in my thinking, to see things from a new angle or gain new insight on the topic but that was not the case here. This book would probably be helpful to people who are new to faith or as a reminder of what Christians should already know.
