Summary: Fear is so much a part of the human experience that we may thing there’s no escape. Our own earthly solutions fall short, but God has offered us a better remedy: a spirit of “power and love and discipline” (2 Tim. 1:7 NASB) that can overcome fear of others, irrational fear, and sinful fear. Through short lessons and discussion questions, Wayne and Joshua Mack show how we can find true courage by fearing God and trusting in him alone. This book can be used for individual growth and development, for group study, or for homework assignments for those in counseling.
