Fearful To Fearless: biblical truths to inspire you to live a life free of fear and to worship God | Fear Not - Don't Worry - Fear God

Rate this book
Fearful To Fearless brings together almost 400 passages of scripture that demonstrate or direct us to not be afraid, to not worry or be anxious, to look to Christ for strength and comfort, and be transformed to have a worshipful fear and awe of God. Each passage is accompanied by a short biblical truth to help provide clarity and encouragement. The account of Jesus calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41) is an impressive demonstration of Christ's power over nature and His ability to comfort us in the storm. It showcases our need to call on Him in prayer and place our trust and reliance on Him, it was the inspiration for writing Fearful To Fearless. When the disciples cried out suggesting that He didn't care whether they perished or not, Christ showed His disappointment in their lack of faith. For Christ loves us all and wants for none to perish, but for all to have faith and go through the storm with Him. Each time we choose to trust Him in the storm the stronger our faith becomes. But what we also see in this passage is the transformation from being afraid, to having the fear of God. The disciples just witnessed the power that He had over the sea and storm and realized the power that He had over them. They were now in awe, they marveled at what they just observed and were filled with the fear of God, a godly fear of the power and grace of Christ during the calm, a fear of the Lord and all His goodness, a reverent awe that was full of honor and glorifying to Christ.

Fearful to Fearless is a book with a simple premise: stop being afraid in life, stop being anxious or nervous, and instead be bold and fearless.

The book is divided into three sections: "Fear Not", "Don't Worry", and "Fear God". Each one begins with a brief introduction and then proceeds into the familiar devotional format. The book at first seems unusual, as it essentially is an exhaustive collection of bible verses that relate to fear, worry, doubts, and the like. Yet, its simplicity is great, for whatever page you open to you are guaranteed to read a verse that directly relates to fear. Also, after each verse, Kusner gives a brief sentence or two to think and meditate on.

This book basically is like running a query on the word "fear" and the bible and then putting the results into book format. While the idea is not original, it definitely shows the author's concern for his subject. However, be advised that any extra stuff is relegated primarily to the introductions, and this book lacks bells & whistles. (Yet, who needs bells & whistles when you've got God's Word?)

Fearful to Fearless is a standard Christian book that offers encouragement to those with problems, this one chiefly being fear and apprehension. Some extra verses or commentary would've been nice, but then again, if one was looking only for a collection of verses on fear, this book would fit perfectly. For anyone that struggles with fear and worries and would like a devotion-type book, I can easily recommend Jeff Kusner's Fearful to Fearless. If you're wanting a more in-depth look and commentary on fear, this may not be the book for you.

I was impressed with the the author and his writing. He brings forth nearly 400 scriptures to show us not to worry, have fear, or anxious about things. It shows to give our faith over to christ and he will take care of things. This would be a great book for someone in need or a great gift for Christmas.
