Overview

The fear of failure afflicts us all. It erodes faith, deflates courage, and prevents victorious living. But fear doesn’t have to haunt us anymore. In this newly repackaged edition of his popular book, best-selling author and beloved pastor Erwin W. Lutzer offers a healing alternative that releases Christians from attitudes of defeat.

Using lessons from the life of Joshua, Lutzer teaches what Christians can do every day to see the promises of God fulfilled in their lives. From learning to listen to the right voice to living with a bad decision, from embracing the power of prayer to overcoming obstacles, this handbook will guide readers through the pitfalls of spiritual growth. “My prayer is that through studying Joshua we all will take one more giant step toward spiritual maturity,” writes Lutzer. “In the process we shall discover that God is all-powerful and worthy of our trust.”

Written in the tone that made Lutzer a best-selling author of more than twenty books, Conquering the Fear of Failure shows readers how to focus on God and His promises, not upon circumstances or setbacks, so we may live a faith-filled, victorious life.
