Format: Hardcover
In a day when many Christian authors seem to constantly chide / encourage their readers to "overcome" or be "victorious" while ignoring the realities of life's difficulties, Pastor Boyd provides a real life scenario and, against all odds, leads the reader to the expectation of hope and 'overcoming' faith in the midst of adversity. Not a spiritual 'self-help' manual, this easily read book takes the reader through New Life Church's darkest days and shows how God's faithfulness "wins in the end!" My eyes welled with tears through much of the book and I set it down with an unshakable sense of His genuine concern for His children. Very private moments are shared in a sensitive and caring manner.

I've been in church almost 40 years and for some reason (probably my fault) use to think that Disney did Christianity (Ch 5 of the book). I was taught that I am blessed, and I am, but that does not mean that I won't go through trials and tribulations. So I had an incomplete understanding. False expectations (a trouble-free life or that we can deserve one by our faith or sinless actions) can be very damaging to the point where some Christians turn their back on God. And when taking eternity into view, this "turning away" would be life's greatest tragedy.

The main theme of "Fear No Evil" is the devastation and recovery at New Life that occurred as a result of the scandal and shooting there. Integrated into that theme are other stories shared from Brady Boyd's personal walk and pastoral work that provides real life examples of Godly people going through dark valleys. Brady also shares and interprets scriptures to show how God can and does turn mourning into life. I believe this book and a study of the scriptures shared within will produce more maturity (James 1:2-4), more compassion, and a better understanding of God's bigger plan to all those who read it.

Brady Boyd has given us so much more here than New Life Church's experiences and trusts in the past 10 years. This is an incredible book on the biblical perspective of challenge and crisis. With so much teaching out there now that indicates as Christians we just don't have to suffer...it is refreshing to read what the bible actually teaches in Brady's book. We will have challenge and suffering...but God is most definitely IN the challenge and will be faithful to redeem the challenge! Excellent book!

I have been waiting for this book to come out and I could not put it down!! I found myself crying, laughing, and in awe of the power of God! Pastor Brady opens his heart about the 'valleys' that the church, the people, the community, and himself all went through. I found myself having to read some chapters over again just to get all the insite and the wisdom that he was able to put on paper.
Right now, my wife is going through a serious, physical situation and this book has helped us to look through the 'valley' and to focus more on God. We have to continue to walk through it and not stop.
Thank you Pastor Brady for sharing.

Just started attending New Life Church when we moved to Colorado Springs this year. I was given this book to read to understand the church. I not only read it but have purchased multiple copies and given it to friends and family. It gives a honest and transparent narrative of the effect the active shooter incident had on Brady personally and the church as a whole. It has great biblical teaching on how to journey personally or as a leader through grief and suffering in a biblical and authentic way. I would recommend it to both the leader and parishoner as it speaks honestly and authentically about the journey of grief and the biblical response to it and to reconciliation. The description of the reconciliation scene is one of the most powerful I have read next to those I witnessed after the massicure in Rwanda. Our God can redeem all situations and no one is too far to be out of the reach of His redemption!

This book is rich because of the circumspect, candid, down to earth way Brady Boyd told the story of what is possible when we invite God into our lives,especially when we don't know what to do or say and everything feels and looks black. He tells just how hard things got and how God was there, just the same.
One of the most beautiful and powerful parts, to me, is where he tells the story of being bullied, in grade school/middle school, and how when his father stepped in to help him, He was able to prevent the bully's from continuing in their bullying and how it's a picture of what the Heavenly Father feels about bullying of any kind and how He came into those dark days, of December 9th, and prevented an even worse aftermath from happening.
It's a beautiful story of the Gospel, played out in the lives of real people, who experienced the pain of death and the hope of life after.

Fear No Evil: A Test of Faith, a Courageous Church, and an Unfailing God is an inspiring read filled with golden nuggets of wisdom for anyone walking in a valley or passing through a rough patch in life. My copy is underlined, starred, hi-lited and generally battle worn as I tried to make noticeable advice that I might need for a later time. This book is well written, the story engaging. I'd recommend it to anyone. It's well worth your time to read it.
