Fearless by Max Lucado
What would it be like to live without fear? Every one of us carries some fears in our lives; fear of not mattering, fear of not protecting our kids, fear of disappointing God, fear of overwhelming challenges, fear of violence, fear of what’s next, fear of getting out of my box, and so much more. Did you know that God’s word, and the examples and stories we have of Jesus and his followers in the Bible give us solutions and answers to these fears?
I have read several of Max’s books over the years, and we’ve done studies of some of his other books in our Small Group. He has a gift with the written word, and helps readers connect Biblical truths and principles to our lives today. He’s happy to share his own struggles and fears in this book, and I find his openness and honesty refreshing. Sometimes authors will try to pretend that they have all the answers. Max offers guidance and insight without arrogance, and he speaks on our level.
We live in a world with many things that can induce fear in us. Fear of the unknown, and worry about what is coming down the pipe are common place. As Christ followers, we should always keep our hope and promise in things outside of this world. Max gives us several reminders throughout this thought-provoking book. He reminds us how and why we can live FEARLESS.
Everything will work out in the end. So if it hasn’t worked out yet, that just means it’s not done yet.

Web geek by day (and early morning sometimes), husband, father, volunteer and friend by night. I am a self-taught web developer which has flourished into a good career, and today my focus is mostly on online marketing, project management, social media, HTML5, CSS3, and OOP PHP. I'm always reading a variety of things that will continue to feed my passions: online marketing, relationships, church leadership, and my own walk with Christ.
I've found the key to happiness (and survival) for me is to be well organized and structured so that I can do a 'good job' at everything. But one of these days I'm going to be able to withdraw from everything else and just spend my days w/ God, Gaby, family and friends.
