Max Lucado is one of my favorite authors. Thankfully, there is plenty to read by him – he has written dozens of books. He also has been involved in the creation of children’s stories and videos for those parents out there. Fearless is Max Lucado’s latest book and comes at an apt time in response to our current situation – an economic recession and an unstable world with terrorism around every corner.
I’m still reading it – but its so good I just could wait till I finished. What makes it so amazing?
- Chapter a Day – The chapters are of the perfect length to be read in a single 10-15 minute period, making it easy to pace through the book at a chapter a day.
- Vibrant Imagery – Max has a beautiful gift with words and can weave together encouragement and visual truths in a way that few can. Some think of his books as fluffy – I don’t – I think they are are meditative.
- Intelligent – Max fills his books with numerous quotations – from Scripture, from history, from literature, from experience that support and illustrate his points. His ability to pull from such a diverse collection of sources always make his books fascinating and enjoyable.
- Easy – Max isn’t writing for an academic elite but for all of us. His works aren’t stupid but neither are they dry and intellectual. He aims for our hearts as well as our minds.
If you struggle with anxiety or fear – from small daily troubles to gigantic, overwhelming panic attacks – take some time to grab this library from a local bookstore (Amazon: Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear) or library and pace yourself through it a chapter a day. You won’t be sorry!
Once you have, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it – what you liked, didn’t like, and what other books you are reading and recommend.
