Book Description: For many people, worry, anxiety, and fear are constant companions: fear of death, fear of danger, fear of disease. And too often, these fears are crippling, keeping us from the life God has called us to live.
But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Dr. David Jeremiah. As Christians, we have been given all we need in order to face down even the most frightening, unexpected, and overwhelming obstacles in life.
In his new book, What Are You Afraid Of? Dr. Jeremiah explores the top ten fears that are holding so many of us back from the life God has called us to live and shares the supernatural secrets for facing down these fears with faith.
My Thoughts: Books by Dr. David Jeremiah are always informative and interesting. So, when I received What Are You Afraid Of? Facing Down Your Fears with Faith I quickly began reading the first chapter. And was pleasantly surprised at the ease of reading this nonfiction book.
Chapter 1: Disaster The Fear of Natural Calamity begins with a somewhat suspenseful story of the the Trowbridges and where they need to hide. All of the chapters begin with a "person" story to illustrate that word - the words are Disaster, Disease, Debt, Defeat, Disconnection, Disapproval, Danger, Depression, Death, and Deity. I thought it interesting that Dr. Jeremiah used all words that begin with the letter D.
This is a great faith lifter read!
The third chapter, Debt: The Fear of Financial Collapse, really struck home with me. Our nation is in debt, so many people are in debt and there seems to be financial collapse in all our near futures...the calamity that could happen makes my heart so ever troubled.
But after reading this book I was greatly encouraged and reminded that God is in control!
This wonderful, faith lifting book is a must read for ALL christians. We need not live in fear and Dr. David Jeremiah gives us a whole lot of reasons to trust God and not fear!
