Editorial Reviews

Review

Ray and Nancy Kane open up their hearts, sharing their own pain as well as their counseling expertise in the struggle to fully experience the love that drives away our fears.  This book will take your heart by the hand and lead you to love in ways that break the bondage of fear.  As God's Word says, love casts out fears.  From Fear to Love may just be what a fear-gripped heart is looking for.  Read it and rejoice!
-Dr. Joseph Stowell, President, Moody Bible Institute

In From Fear to Love Ray and Nancy speak with a gripping story.  I simply could not put the manuscript down.  This true life story reads better than a compelling novel.  The story is warm and exciting and points with great wisdom how to move from fear to love in the bonds of Christ.
-Dr. Frank Minirth, Diplomate American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology

You can overcome the barrier of fear and find love like you've never known before.  Through this helpful book, Ray and Nancy Kane will guide you--step by step--beyond the stark walls of fear and walk with you toward healthy relationships that enjoy the luxurious freedom of love.
-From the foreword, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, best-selling authors, speakers, and counselors

Clear, honest, sensitive, practical, filled with interesting stories, often captivating--these words all describe Ray and Nancy's book.  This is a wonderful book about relationships, but it is more.  The Kanes have dipped into their experiences as counselors, as Christians, and as a married couple, to write a helpful guide for anybody who ever gets angry or controlling, who knows people who are hard to love, or who wants more loving relationships.  Read it and you'll grow.
-Dr. Gary Collins, psychologist, author, professor, and former president of the American Association of Christian Counselors

To some degree most of us know (or have experienced) the symptoms of anxiety--the loss of a sense of well-being, the sickening of self absorption, the obsession with dark outcomes, the racing heart.  With compassion and insight the authors open our eyes and hearts to move us from fear-based isolation to our greatest human longing--love and satisfying human connectedness.  We needed this book more than we realized.
-Valerie Bell, conference speaker and author of six books including Made to Be Loved

Format: Paperback
From Fear to Love provides a refreshing, honest outlook on real relationships. An incredible ability to share about the intense trials of their own lives and marriage, the authors were able to grab ahold the hands of their readers and journey through the pain and fear that so often dominates many relationships. However, Ray and Nancy Kane refuse to get distracted or lose hope in their fear, but instead fight through their battles of fear and control until a real, sincere love was found. This book gives hope and inspiration to those struggling to find sincere, unselfish love. They write in a simple, enjoyable manner that all readers can relate to.

A friend gave me this book and once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. I believe the title might be misleading because I believe it hits on many things in life and many situations that we all go through, this book is for everyone. I loved the books so much I bought ten of them and passed them out to family and friends. I received the same reaction from the people I gave it to!

Format: Paperback
"The experience of overcoming fear is extraordinarily delightful."-- Bertrand Russell.
Ray and Nancy Kane's book is that kind of experience. The Kanes examine fears that can paralyze individuals, especially fears that get played out in relationships. The reader doesn't feel isolated from the counselors/authors because they own up to their own struggles with fear as a couple. They use their struggles as a spring board to say, "Even as professional counselors, we know marriage is tough, we've been there. But we didn't stay trapped in fear and you don't have to either. There is a way out. It is love -- real love." The Kanes go on to suggest practical ways to conquer fear through love, especially in marriage.
They also look at fears in our society and offer reasons why love is the only force that can conquer fear. The power of the love they are talking about becomes very clear in the chapter, "Love that overcomes." There they talk about 9/11 as a example of love and courage winning out over fear. They mention the firefighters who charged up stairs to save strangers, and men like Todd Beamer -- who let love override fear. "Like beacons of light, certain individuals illumined a path for us to follow. They have showed us that when love and courage prevail, anything can be overcome" (181). This is not mushy love, or Hollywood-style love, it is love made of stuff that does not melt under fire.
The Kanes state that it is not their experience as professional counselors, but their mutual faith in God that is what enables them to love sacrifically and powerfully. And, at the end of the book they write,"We invite you to join those who have loved without limits and given without restriction both their care and compassion. Let us move from fear to true, life-transforming love." The invitation is a welcome one.

Format: Paperback
Anything other than love is fear based. Many couples are so accustomed to choosing fear over love it is second nature. The Kane's share tools and stories to assist couples to make good choices and keep love alive. Many couples have been conditioned to shutdown, and are more comfortable pulling away. This book is a great guide to build a good foundation for love. Annie B. Lawrence, author of Love's Secret Live Your Life In Love.

I am only half way through this book, but I have not been able to stop reading it. this book is wonderful and has opened my eyes to how my life is conquered by my own fear. I never even realized that I am fearful of things that I am, and im so so so happy I bought this, not only does it talk about fear in relationship but also just in general fear or rejection fear of abandonment fear of closeness with other the fear to get out there and live! it is slightly religious and talks about god a little bit, I am not really religious, but those of you that are will really enjoy it and those of you that aren't will really enjoy it also. When I first started reading it I thought to myself man I didn't want a book talking about god and financial fears, but I gave it a few more pages and I am hooked on it. I really recommend this to anyone who is struggling with fear, or just feels overwhelmed. its worth reading. it has changed my attitude and outlook on a lot of things already and im only half way through it
