About the Author
I've certainly made my share of excuses when it comes to stepping out, but each time I've chosen to step in faith I have been blessed and enriched. I know it pleases God to see people overcome their fears and answer His call. He has a plan and wants to include us all in accomplishing it! Writing "Fearful To Fearless" is something that has been on my heart for more than ten years. Looking for something to pick up when you need to hear a short word from God in the area of fear and worry, I've actually been waiting for someone else to write it. I recall hearing that there were 365 "fear nots" in the bible, one for every day of the year, it was even mentioned in the movie "Facing the Giants" but I've never found anything written or assembled this way. Fearful To Fearless represents about 15 months of research, study and preparation. A number of bible translations and commentaries were utilized in identifying the scripture passages relating to fear, worry and the fear of God. I prayed about what each passage had to say in order to uncover a concise biblical truth that put the passage in context for me. In the end almost 400 scripture references were identified. ~ Jeff: 365fearnots.com

There are selected passages from Genesis through Revelation with a complete index. The format of the book includes one of the selected scriptural passage addressing a "fear not" or other verse related to fear or comfort with a brief truth to accompany the verse that inspires, comforts, or challenges the reader to look to Jesus for calm and peace in the personal "storms of life" being faced.
The book is designed so that it can be used for daily inspiration, for help in specific times of crisis, or when needing a nugget of truth or a promise for the peace and calm that Christ offers his followers in times when they need extra faith or spiritual strength. Each passage has been carefully selected.
"Fearful to Fearless" is an ideal gift book, for hospital visitation, for graduation, or for any of those other occasions you want to offer encouragement and inspiration.
The account of Jesus calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41) is an impressive demonstration of Christ's power over nature and His ability to comfort us in the storm. It showcases our need to call on Him in prayer and place our trust and reliance on Him, it was the inspiration for writing Fearful To Fearless. Fearful To Fearless brings together almost 400 passages of scripture to demonstrate or direct us to not be afraid, to not worry or be anxious, to look to Christ for strength and comfort, and be transformed to have a worshipful fear and awe of God. Each passage is accompanied by a short biblical truth to help provide clarity and encouragement. When the disciples cried out suggesting that He didn't care whether they perished or not, Christ showed His disappointment in their lack of faith. For Christ loves us all and wants for none to perish, but for all to have faith and go through the storm with Him. Each time we choose to trust Him in the storm the stronger our faith becomes. But what we also see in this passage is the transformation from being afraid, to having the fear of God. The disciples just witnessed the power that He had over the sea and storm and realized the power that He had over them. They were now in awe, they marveled at what they just observed and were filled with the fear of God, a godly fear of the power and grace of Christ during the calm, a fear of the Lord and all His goodness, a reverent awe that was full of honor and glorifying to Christ.
My Thoughts: Amazing! This collection of Biblical references and comments will truely bless your heart. Whether you are struggling or simply want something to bolster your faith, this book has just the right verses. It is well structured to lead you from one frame of mind to the next in a relaxing and soothing manner that promotes putting God first and foremost in your life. It shows how we can truly become stronger by relying on Him and showing a true godly fear of His power , mercy and grace.</span></div><div><span style="color:#336666;"></span></div>
The book is divided into three sections: "Fear Not", "Don't Worry", and "Fear God". Each one begins with a brief introduction and then proceeds into the familiar devotional format. The book at first seems unusual, as it essentially is an exhaustive collection of bible verses that relate to fear, worry, doubts, and the like. Yet, its simplicity is great, for whatever page you open to you are guaranteed to read a verse that directly relates to fear. Also, after each verse, Kusner gives a brief sentence or two to think and meditate on.
This book basically is like running a query on the word "fear" and the bible and then putting the results into book format. While the idea is not original, it definitely shows the author's concern for his subject. However, be advised that any extra stuff is relegated primarily to the introductions, and this book lacks bells & whistles. (Yet, who needs bells & whistles when you've got God's Word?)
Fearful to Fearless is a standard Christian book that offers encouragement, this one chiefly for those that struggle with fear and apprehension. Some extra verses or commentary would've been nice, but then again, if one was looking only for a collection of verses on fear, this book would fit perfectly. For anyone that faces these problems, fear and worrying, and would like a devotion-type book, I can easily recommend Jeff Kusner's Fearful to Fearless. If you're wanting a more in-depth look and commentary on fear, this may not be the book for you.
