Editorial Reviews Review

Bestselling author and reknowned pastor Max Lucado offers to readers this introductory message to his new book Fearless.  

A Message from Max Lucado

Fear seems to be in the driver’s seat these days. People are troubled and anxious. Finances are tumbling, rockets are launching, and seemingly solid institutions are teetering. It's tough for folks to know where to turn.

Two years ago I began writing a new book entitled Fearless. Little did I know then what we'd be facing now, but God did. The book examines Jesus' statements about fear and encourages us to take heart in difficult times.

The antidote to the fear epidemic? Trust. If we trust God more, we can fear less. What a comforting promise.

-Max Lucado

A Message from Thomas Nelson Publishers

For the past few years we have seen a rejuvenated Max Lucado. Since taking a different step in his role at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, TX Max has devoted more of his time to writing and preaching, thus he is more in his "sweet spot." Fearless is a wonderful result of that by addressing the issue of Fear in our world, our community, and our personal lives. This year, he hosted a town hall on fear at his church and was able to receive questions from the attendees and readers on Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, and by phone. It was encouraging to see Max help them realize that that they are not alone and can fight fear with the help of God, their family, friends, and at church. With the growth of social media, our team has had the ability to dialogue with Max Lucado readers on a whole new level. It has been encouraging to hear their stories of overcoming fear whether it may be facing financial ruin, fighting a difficult relationship, going into a serious surgery, figuring out how to be calm and protecting their children, etc. It has helped our team recognize more than ever how important a message like Fearless is to everyday people. People are left inspired by Max Lucado. My hope is that someday you will be able to meet Max Lucado in person. He is as geniune of a person as he is in his books.

In 2010, it is Max's 25th Anniversary in publishing and he will working toward the goal of sponsoring 25,000 children through World Vision. His book "Outlive Your Life" will help capture the spirit of service that we as Christians must embrace just as the early church did in the book of Acts. We hope you will also be inspired by these words. Thank you Amazon and readers for your support of Max through the years.

From Publishers Weekly

Lucado, called by some America's pastor, offers his faithful base a timely primer on living fearlessly. The author, whose sales exceed 65 million books, provides those within the Christian faith (and without) an inspirational can-do appropriate for the turbulent times Americans are facing. Citing key common fears—violence, overwhelming challenges, sickness and other worst-case scenarios—Lucado offers welcome wisdom about those solely internal battles individuals face daily. People are afraid their lives don't matter; they're afraid of disappointing God; they're afraid of an afterlife; and they're even afraid God is not real, Lucado says. Skillful as a surgeon, he discerns and identifies the cancer of fear that touches every human being, and with like precision speaks healing words that cut right the heart. While there exists no fast fix or simple cure for the fear-bound individual, Lucado's tempered counsel and faith-driven remedies will offer day-by-day spiritual medicine of the most potent kind.

More About the Author

In just under two decades of writing, Max Lucado has accomplished more than most writers hope for in a lifetime. Most of his books have appeared on one or more best seller lists, including those published by the "New York Times," "USA Today," "Publishers Weekly," and the Christian Booksellers Association (CBA). Aside from hardcover books, Lucado's writings have also been published as children's books, videos, CD-ROMs, DVDs, music CDs, mass paperback booklets, apparel, giftware, bookmarks, calendars, study Bibles, workbooks, curricula, and plush products. In spring 2003, Hallmark/Dayspring Cards launched a new gift card line featuring excerpts from Lucado's writings--and has already sold more than one million cards.

All this success has drawn more than a little attention to a previously low-profile Texas author and minister. Lucado has been featured in a wide range of media, including "USA Today," "Larry King Live," and "NBC Nightly News." He has spoken at the National Prayer Breakfast before the President of the United States. He has traveled with internationally renowned musicians as a special speaker on their music tours, such as the highly successful "Come Together & Worship Tour" (sponsored by Chevrolet) with Grammy Award-winning artists Michael W. Smith and Third Day.

Journey to the Top
Lucado was born in 1955 in San Angelo, Texas, and raised in Andrews, Texas, the youngest of four children. His father was an Exxon oil field mechanic who, Lucado remembers, always smelled of grease cleaner. "It makes it easy for me to see a God who is loving and kind--because my dad was," he says. His mother was a nurse who grew up working in the cotton fields.

Lucado went through a period of rebellion against his parents' values and their God during his teens and into college. But it wasn't long before he found himself drawn back to his roots, back to God. He married, spent time serving as a missionary in Brazil, and returned to the States, where he began working as a church minister and writing on the side.

Secret to Success
From all accounts, Max Lucado is not a man consumed by sales, awards, and achievements. He often turns down media interviews since they impede on family and ministry commitments. He spends the bulk of his week serving as senior minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. And he is truly surprised by his own success--more impressed by his one-in-a-million wife and three amazing daughters than by his successful writing career.

I expected to enjoy reading Fearless. I've enjoyed reading every book Max Lucado wrote. But this book went far beyond my expectations. This is literally the best Max Lucado book I've ever read. I believe it has changed my life for the better.

I've never been a fearful person. I've always been the one to scoff at those who allow fears to stop them from doing what God has called them to do. That was before God turned my life upside down and changed everything about where I believed He was leading me. I started to have anxiety attacks at times and would allow fear to stop me in my tracks. I couldn't even label what I was afraid of.

Max Lucado's book, Fearless, showed me that everyone battles fears. He described what fears are common to all of us and how those fears can destroy our lives. He also showed in a very practical way how we can have victory over fear. God doesn't want us to be fearful. He wants us to give our fears to him. I recommend every Christian read this book. Even if you don't believe yourself to be fearful, this book will help you.

Like many people today, I have circumstances in my life which have caused me great fear and anxiety. Max Lucado's book Fearless, brought me back to the principles and beliefs that I knew to be true but often forget in the business and overwhelming feelings of everyday life. Max is a great story teller so he makes the Truths of Scripture come alive through real stories and real life examples.

The book is broken down into chapters dealing with many of the fears we all face - fear of losing your job, fear of what might happen to our kids, fear of death, etc.

Many thoughts that Max shared were new to me and helped me understand myself better. For instance:

"Fear, at its center, is a perceived loss of control. When life spins wildly, we grab for a component of life we can manage: our diet, the tidyness of our house, the armrest of a plane, or in many cases, people."

Max also takes a different spin on the paralegic who was dropped through the roof of a home where Jesus was speaking. Most would think that when Jesus saw this man who couldn't walk, He would heal his legs. Jesus had different thoughts and dealt first with this young man's greatest fear:

"Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven" (Matt. 9:2 nasb). Wouldn't we anticipate different words? "Take courage. Your legs are healed.""Your paralysis is over." "Sign up for the Boston Marathon." The man had limbs as sturdy as spaghetti, yet Jesus offered mercy,not muscles. What was he thinking? Simple. He was thinking about
our deepest problem: sin. He was considering our deepest fear: the fear of failing God. Before Jesus healed the body (which he did), he treated the soul. "Take courage, son; your sins are forgiven.

57 of 67 people found the following review helpful By A. W. Noble on September 8, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Max Lucado's book "Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear" discusses in fifteen chapters different types of fears and how to get to living life without fear. He describes a topic of fear in each chapter then sets about suggesting ways the reader can succeed in dispelling the fear. This book is like other Lucado books in that there are multiple stories that he shares related to each topic.

"Fearless" is filled with rich stories and thoughts that I found to be interesting, if not deep. I found there were nuggets tucked throughout the book, but I would have liked to have more suggestions on how to apply the ideas effectively in real life. Since the book does have a Discussion Guide section at the end, it would perhaps address this shortcoming. Overall, if fear is a topic of particular interest or concern for the reader, then it may be that Fearless would be a good book for you.

I got Fearless by Max Lucado from Thomas Nelson publishers to review today on the day it came out. The book is organized very well with each chapter about a different fear that plagues people today like the fear of not protecting your kids, fear of overwhelming challenges, fear of violence, and many more.

If you enjoy Max Lucado books then this book is for you. It's the same style writing and wordage that you can expect from his books. There are lots of bible verses and stories but nothing is ever wrapped up. He does not arm you with any strategies or methods of dealing with fear except turning to Jesus. I understand the need to turn to Jesus for everything but sometimes I feel like it is just not that simple and there needs to be more said to help people cope. I felt it was elementary and not a challenging read at all. To be fair to Max Lucado he did write a biblically sound book that will help someone out there. It just wasn't for me. The subject matter speaks to my heart since I deal with fear and anxiety every day but I seriously got nothing out of this book. It was a boring read that was hard to finish.

I would recommend it to Max Lucado fans or something who wants to try out one of his books but if you don't like his style writing this book isn't for you.

A few weeks ago I received a copy of Max Lucado's next to latest book, Fearless, to review. I was a huge Lucado fan years ago, but had kinda gotten away from reading him a little bit recently, until receiving his last two books. They are two of his best, which is saying a lot. Fearless is a challenge to 'imagine your life without fear.' Lucado sets things up with a chapter called "Why Are We Afraid," ends with a chapter that is simply a conclusion. In the middle he addresses 13 (humorously ironic, eh?) common human fears with a chapter devoted to each and to God's response to each. As someone in ministry, especially someone working with students, I can definitely appreciate many of the fears addressed, as they are common ones we all face, but definitely ones that students deal with on an enormous level, things like 'fear of disappointing God,' 'Fear of Overwhelming Challenges,' ' Fear of Worst-Case Scenarios,' 'Fear of What's Next,' 'Fear of Life's Final Moments,' and 'Fear That God is Not Real,' among others.

In the opening chapter, Lucado addresses many of the daily things that people fear in our world today while introducing Jesus and faith into the equation of overcoming fear. He also points out that there are 21 admonishments of Jesus that relate directly to not being afraid. He states, "Fear may fill our world but it doesn't have to fill our hearts." He then turns to addressing the common fears with a chapter each devoted to 13 of them.

In the chapter on the fear of not mattering, he reminds the reader that we are God's workmanship (Ephesians 2:10). In the chapter on the fear of disappointing God, he reminds us that God's forgiveness is greater than our fear.
