Max Lucado FEARLESS book coverLife can become overwhelming for the best of us. Finances begin to fall apart. Health begins to fail. Worldwide political situations become volatile. Scientists point to climate crisis or impending space collisions. Crime hits too close to home. We worry more and find ourselves living behind the closed doors of homes, barely able to force ourselves into unknown situations. Max Lucado addresses these fears in his new book, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear.

One of the strengths of Lucado’s book is he doesn’t just address the overall topic of fear, but goes after specific fears and presents a response for each. From financial upheaval to gross paranoia to that nagging feeling your life may not really matter, the author addresses enough specific issues, you’re sure to find a chapter that intersects your life head on.

Lucado also provides the tools to help combat two of fear’s biggest pitfalls – the unknown future and the tendency to isolate yourself in your fear. He packs each chapter (topic) with relatable, real-life stories that put future possibilities in perspective. He’s also provided a discussion guide in the back of the book. This tool will help anyone courageous enough to find a few friends willing to read and discuss the book together. Like turning the lights on in a darkened bedroom, having an open discussion with others helps force your fears into a public setting where they often don’t seem as scary.

Like other works by Max Lucado, Fearless is an easy read. He spins stories around Biblical truths to help diffuse our fears. If you’re looking for help to battle your, or someone else’s fears, this is a good book to begin the journey. If this whets your appetite and you’re looking for more, I’d suggest Arterburn, Meier and Wise’s book with a similar title, Fear Less for Life: Break Free to Living with Hope and Confidence. That book includes a more in depth look at fear from a theological, psychological and physiological viewpoint. I’d highly recommend Lucado’s Fearless as a good first step in the journey.
