“That Macks’ work stands out among a number of good resources on the subject. I would encourage you to use it first to bless your own life and then to use it to bless the lives of everyone you know who might experience the emotion of fear (wouldn’t that be all of us?).”See All

“Every one of us knows what it is like to be gripped by fear and doubt. Wayne and Josh Mack have served Christ’ church well with their new book on how to develop biblical courage. You can always be sure of two things whenever the Macks write a book: it will be filled with helpful truth from Scripture and be extremely relevant to the challenges we are facing today. This book will be a helpful resource to study personally and to give to others in need.”See All

Books at a Glance
Throughout the Bible we are told to fear God, but our lives show where our true fears lie. Sinful, controlling fear paralyzes us spiritually: we're afraid to obey or trust God in the circumstances that scare us, and we care more about what others think of us than what God thinks.
We need to embrace the fear that is good for us. By learning how the fear of God drives out all other fears, we lay a strong foundation for courage in every situation.
With writing space for personal responses, this book can be used for individual growth and development, for group study, or for homework assignments for those in counseling.
