Book Review: Fearless by Max Lucado

Recently I was asked to review a new book by Max Lucado called “Fearless. I have been a Lucado fan for years. I’ve read several other of his books. I even heard him speak at a concert once. I expected to like the book. This one did not disappoint. The chapters in the book cover the various fears we have as humans: from fear for our children, to money worries, and others, right down to fear of dying. Not all of us are afflicted with fear on a daily basis, but most of us have moments where fears gets the best of us, at least temporarily.

Lucado has a knack for writing simply and vividly, with word-pictures in every other paragraph, always pointing to the Saviour. He may not have described the exact circumstances in which I have felt the most fear. But he hits close enough to home that I feel understood, and can’t help but personalize his message. Did the book change my life? Maybe not. But it was a great reminder that God is in control of all the details of my life, even during moments when I am scared and unhappy with the direction life’s journey is taking me. As long as I keep looking at Him, the storms of life won’t carry me away.
