Overview

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They're talking 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. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn't it be great to walk out?

Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, and doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, when you could trustmore and fear less. Can you imagine your life without fear?

The booklet contains Chapter 1 of Fearless with additional content.

    Covers the important stuff from the full book.

    This was a nice little booklet. It was mostly snippets from the book Fearless by Max Lucado, but it hit some of the more important parts. If you don't have the time to sit and read the whole book this booklet will suffice. I liked that in the end there was a list of scriptures rather than having them spaced all throughout the book.

    Imagine your life without Fear - Max Lucado

    These days we find plenty of books on motivation and self-help in the market. But one book that seems to capture the attention is 'Imagine your life without Fear' by Max Lucado. Part of the Thomas Nelson book blogger club, I came across this book in the list presented to us, and the cover page not to mention a recommendation from a friend prompted me to select this book for review.

    The title of the book says it all. it is a book that addresses the concept of 'fear', what it means to humans and how Jesus addresses fear in the Gospel. Fear has always existed in time ever since consciousness emerged and, fear exists even today in various forms, transcending boundaries of time, geography and races. People of every faith and practice experience it in their daily lives.

    Fear takes different shapes - with the recent economic downturn that hit almost every country's economy badly, every person whether employed or unemployed fears about their future, layoffs, family mortgages or even expenditure. And so do children who are learning new things every day and old people nearing the end of their lives most of whom fear death. The author introduces this concept by reminiscing about his brother Dee, a cheerful person and an extrovert who succumbed to alcoholism. Although he overcame the addiction, it was too late to save his life. The message here is.

    Envision a day, just one day, absent from the dread of failure, rejection and calamity.

    While this would be anyone's idea of a perfect day, it is not so in reality. The author quotes biblical verses here especially the episode where Jesus is aboard a ship with his disciples. A storm is brewing and while his disciples look up to Jesus with fear of drowning and plead to him to save them, Jesus is asleep at the stern. This instance is discussed in detail where Jesus' thoughts on fear and how he addresses his disciples is explored in depth.

    Jesus' most common command emerges from the 'fear not' genre. It is mentioned here that the Gospel lists some 125 Christ-issued imperatives of which 21 urge us to "not be afraid" or "not fear" or "have courage" or "take heart" or "be of good cheer." The second most command, to love God and neighbor, appears on only eight occasions. If quantity is any indicator, Jesus takes fears seriously.

    The book is full of instances of fear that we face with anecdotes and quotes from the Gospel. Significant stress is placed on braving through the challenges with faith which is said to be the key to battling our inner demons and fate. But my only negative take here is that this book is primarily for people of Christian faith or even those who've read the Bible.
