Max Lucado has provided us with a strong helping of hope and courage in his newest book, “Fearless,” available today from Thomas Nelson. Max reminds us that “There’s a stampede of fear out there. Let’s not get caught in it.” With each paragraph, the doubts and fears seem to vaporize as Lucado takes us along on the Gospel journey with Jesus and his disciples as be builds encouragement into their lives.
“When Jesus is great, our fears are not.” Walking us hand-in-hand with Jesus and his disciples, Max reminds us that “yes, life stinks. But it won’t forever.” Quoting a friend, he tells us, “Everything will work out in the end. If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.”
Acknowledging those nagging times of distrust, Max reminds us that doubts “can make hermits out of us, driving us into hiding. Yet the cave has no answers. Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through fellowship.” Pushing us back into relationship with Christ and his body – the local community of followers – Lucado pours fresh, satisfying water on those parched souls struggling for hope in the midst of these turbulent times.
I highly recommend “Fearless” and encourage you to purchase a copy today! You can buy a copy of Max Lucado’s book by clicking this link: Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
