I love the way that Max Lucado casts the light of scripture upon the path of human experience. He often puts into words what so many people feel, but can’t or are afraid to express. As I read this book, I felt his voice was reminiscent of the Max Lucado that I enjoyed reading in his first books so many years ago. He is an artist with words. Max Lucado can say more in one sentence than can be read in a multi-volume set of theological textbooks—because he speaks to the heart.
In this book he addresses the issue of fear and moves the reader into the realm of fearlessness through many different perspectives. He reminds the reader to avoid the things that lead to fear and he does so in a meaningful and memorable way. Here is quote from the book that I won’t easily forget, “Worry is the darkroom where negatives become glossy prints.”
Fear is a very big and real issue in each person’s
life. It is not a place where God
wants his children to reside. Max
Lucado makes this very clear in his book and he offers the reader a very clear
picture of the Fearless life that Jesus offers and provides to all who will
look to him.
