Max Lucado’s newest well-timed release “Fearless” is a relevant work intended to help readers navigate the sometimes stormy waters of this earthly realm of existence. Through various scripture and true life experiences Max paints a picture of a world where we decide! Do we want to concentrate on the troublesome seas and tumbling horizons or will we choose the calm over the storm? How we answer this question will decide our fate and lay the groundwork for our experiences to come.
During the first few chapters I came to ask myself, “Where is Max?” You see, his voice in these chapters seemed to be trying to find or reinvent itself. Thankfully, as I entered into chapter five the trying to hard Max was exchanged for the Max Lucado I have come to know and love. Soon I would be back with an old friend chatting in his living room sharing warm funny and heartfelt testimony of how fear was replaced by hope, faith and love to find peace in a complex world.
“Fearless” is a must have book designed to assist Christians of all denominations in their quest to become all that they are created to be. The author lays out simple yet profound advice for living a happy life “NOW’ by choosing to trust God and the plan He has for us while releasing ourselves from the illusions of the material world. Bravo Max on a job well done. -Ron Ash
