I am not much of a reader of Christian books, non-fiction or fiction. I read the first couple of the Left Behind books but that was years ago. Thank to Thomas Nelson Book Reviews, I had the opportunity to review Max Lucadoâ€™s Fearless.
Lucado is a Bible-believing preacher. Therefore his writing is going to refer his readers to the Bible. He’s going to take the examples of Bible and guidance/instruction based on those. Lucado’s writing is upfront and frank. No hidden meaning here or searching for hidden messages.
Fearless starts out with a story of the author brother. His brother was troubled by his fear and insecurities. He was a recovering alcoholic. The whole premise of the Fearless is that we all have fears and if we didnâ€™t have them how much better our life would be. For example, I fear that I am not going to be a great parent or make enough money to support my family. Max Lucado examines 13 ways we need to â€œfear not.â€ At the end of the book there are questions for group discussion.
If Christian writing is for you, I recommend Fearless because it is so inspirational. He mentions several ways to change fear into faith without coming off too preachy. Change is scary and if you have a change coming up in your life or currently experiencing one then pick up this book and change your perspective.
