It's been a long time since I've read a Max Lucado book. Lucado's new book, Fearless, is a book about the fears that are so prevalent in our lives and how they affect us. Lucado takes these fears on head on and matches fear with courage, and fright with faith, with heavy doses of mercy, grace, and generous love. It's an uplifting book that en-courages by giving you a dose of an alternative, biblical reality of a God in control.
What I like about Lucado is his ability to use Scripture, prayer, stories, examples, and easy to read, engaging and creative writing. In this book, Lucado looks past fear and into the heart of the pain behind and inflicted by so many of our fears. He is engaging in stories and metaphors, and then is a straight shooter with the clarity of biblical truth.
The promise of Christ and the contention of this book are simple: we can fear less tomorrow than we do today. [p. 13]
Destructive anxiety subtracts God from the future, faces uncertainties with no faith, tallies up the challenges of the day without entering God into the equation. [p. 46]
