This book heralds a new generation of Christians who are more than bold…they are fearless!
No Fear draws you inside the stories of young, ordinary believers who, despite incredible opposition, courageously stand up for God’s truth. Tony Perkins pairs each story with a biblical example and gives practical ideas for building a “no fear” perspective every day.
Today, followers of Jesus Christ face more opposition to their beliefs than any generation in American history. Yet even in such a hostile cultural and political environment, it is an exciting time to stand firm in the faith.
You have been chosen to live in this important hour, and reading these stories will inspire you to the same kind of courage. So what are you waiting for?
“Tony Perkins has discovered a new generation of young people who love following God more than the crowd...You will discover there is still hope for America and the world after reading their stories in No Fear!”
—Todd Starnes, Fox News Channel
“As the world continues to spiral into an anti-Christian age, it’s important to empower our young people with the strength and conviction to hold fast to the teachings of Christ, and No Fear does just that.”
—Dr. Jack Graham, Senior Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church

Making a Difference Starts with Standing Up for What’s Right
A fourteen-year-old girl testifies before the Maryland State Senate in support of the traditional family. A young man and his new wife launch a campaign to decrease abortions in their community. A high-school cheerleader goes to court for the right to put Bible verses on banners at football games.
These young Americans know that honoring God and his Word is more important than winning friends or keeping their jobs.
In No Fear, Tony Perkins tells the stories of young Christians who take a stand for truth in the face of intense opposition. These unlikely heroes will show you the dramatic influence one person can have in calling a nation to seek fairness, justice, and compassion. The book also draws you back to the heroes of the Bible who stood up for God in their own day and culture, modeling the same brand of courage that is needed today.
What would you do for God if you had no fear? The possibilities are endless. It’s time to get started!
