A guide to live a Fearless life

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear - Max Lucado

In his book, Fearless, author Max Lucado shares with his readers real life stories weaved together with Jesus' teachings. He also shares words of encouragement to conquer their fears by trusting in Him.


The book cover shows a fearless young boy jumping into a deep blue lake with open arms as he is enjoying the freedom of the moment and the knowledge that everything will be ok. God wants us to be like children and go through life Fearless.


The book is divided in 14 easy to understand chapters with topics that the reader could easily identify with. Each chapter ends with a small summary of the roots of the fear and its conquest. The book concludes with a discussion guide to help the reader to maneuver through life Fearless.


I have been a big Max Lucado fan for many years, however, I had a very hard time following this book. Although the stories and Bible principles discussed are easy to understand, I was not very impressed with it. I felt his previous book, His Name is Jesus, was more complete and inspiring than this one. I had the impression that Max rushed through the writing of this book to meet a publishing deadline.


Nevertheless, in spite of my personal disappointment with this book, I can recommend it to people who are looking for a book and study guide to help them live a Fearless life - while trusting the Word of God.
