Fearless by Max Lucado - releases TODAY!!!

Book Description:

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 of unlocked 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, or doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, where you could trust more and fear less.

Can you imagine your life without fear?

My Review:
I absoultly love Max Lucado's books. They always push me into a state of reflection. I have found all of his books very enjoyable to read. Once I start reading them, I can't put them down until I am finished. Being that I love his stories and the 'truths' that he reminds us about through his writing I was estatic when I was presented with the oppurtunity of reviewing his new book, Fearless before it was available to the public.
Through Thomas Nelson: Book Review Bloggers, I was given this amazing oppurtunity. I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Fearless, checking my mailbox a couple times a day. I was thrilled the day I walked out to the mailbox and found that book amidst the bills and flyers. I tore open the package and immediately started reading.
I am a huge Max Lucado fan, so the oppurtunity to review one of his books before everybody else could get it, was very exciting. I had recently recieved a flyer in the mail advertising a pre-buy special of this book. I was considering it when I receieved the email about the oppurtunity to review it.

I think this book comes at the perfect time. The state of the economy, the struggles among children to do more at a younger age, the relationship tightrope we have to all stirs a bit of fear within us. I love that Max Lucado ties biblical truths and scriptures into his book. Fear is very real in everybodys life. I think sometimes it is easy to lose sight of God's truth in the midst of our own fears. This book addresses fear with timeless truth, God's word! It is hard for me to pick one part of the book that I like more, I loved the entire book!
