"We fear being sued, finishing last, going broke; we fear the mole on the back, the new kid on the block, the sound of the clock as it ticks us closer to the grave," writes Max Lucado in his latest book "Fearless."
Whether rational or irrational, we live in a world and a time in history that startles and alarms us. Author and pastor Max Lucado writes to remind us that this is neither necessary nor productive, but he doesn't chide or ridicule the reader.

Everyone knows that name.
You can see it on the face of a startled infant; you can see it in the eyes of a dying man. Fear is one of the inescapable consequences of being human.
Or is it?
Is it possible to live without fear?
Max Lucado says we can fight fear, and learn to live without its life-draining presence, as we learn to trust in Christ.

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, downturns in the housing market and upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken a 100-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 untou...more

Have you ever felt like a book was written with your most overwhelming fears specifically in mind? That's how I felt as I read, "Fearless," by Max Lucado.

Using scripture, personal examples, and allegory,...more

“According to the media the world is one scary place. And we suspect a campaign to keep it that way. Fear sells. Fear glues watchers to their seats, sells magazines off the racks, and puts money in the pockets of the system.”
Looking at my life and how I live, I wonder if we’ve trained ourselves to operate more out of fear. It becomes the drug that sends our hearts racing and our minds creating contingency plans. And although we face life through the orange colored lens of Homeland Security’s “H...more
