Imagine your life without fear. That is the subtitle of this book by Max Lucado. The author addresses areas of our lives in which we have fear. People are afraid of not mattering, of running out, of disappointing God, and of violence, to name a few. All around us, there are things that create fear and dread. And each person has a choice. To live a life based on fear, or faith.

I love Lucado’s personal writing style. This book came into my life at a time when indeed I was facing some personal challenges and where fear was quickly creeping in. It provided a reminder for me that when you live in faith, fear has no place. I found the discussion guide in the book quite helpful in leading me to make practical application to my own life. Perhaps one of my favorite nonscriptural quotes from this book comes from one of Lucado’s friends, who says, “Everything will work out in the end. If it’s not worked out yet, it’s not the end.” Our world is in a constant state of flux, the economy is bad, unemployment is rising, and many things are uncertain. I recommend this book as a great reminder of a way to handle all of the uncertainty.
