FEARLESS book review for Thomas Nelson

I'm doing this review for Fearless by Max Lucado.
 I'm reviewing as a Thomas Nelson book review  blogger.

Back of book-
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, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors.  Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?

Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, and doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, when you could trust more and fear less.

Can you imagine your life without fear?

We all have fears and this book can teach and/or remind us that we have someone we can go to with those fears.
I highly recommend this book for everyone. It is a fast and easy read yet it is one you'll want to go through slow and soak it up. In the back it has discussion guides for the chapters. One small sentence in this book has really stuck with me and that is.

"But worry doesn't work."
Most important thing I got out of it is RELY ON GOD... something I have always known and needed a small reminder.

Read the book,lose your fear and GAIN some Faith.
