From the Inside Flap
From the Back Cover
Everyone is afraid of something--failure, success, loneliness, crowds, death, life--the list is endless. And no one is immune to fear. Fear haunts the weak and the powerful, the young and the old, the rich and the poor. It is the great equalizer.
Some fears--hearing an unexpected noise in the night or encountering an icy bend in the road--attack us only momentarily, passing almost as quickly as they come. But others, such as contracting a deadly illness, being rejected by a loved one, or dying alone, can haunt us for a lifetime, taking up residence in our minds and eating away at our sense of security--and eventually taking over our lives.
Well, fear not!
There is hope. In What Are You Afraid Of? Dr. David Jeremiah identifies and explains what is at the heart of nine of our greatest fears and lays out a biblical plan for overcoming each one of them. He also examines one particular fear that should be part of our daily lives: the fear of God.
What Are You Afraid Of?
What is it that immobilizes you? What is stealing your joy and destroying your hope? What is robbing you of sleep night after night? What keeps you from living by faith and taking risks? What keeps you from giving your life wholly to a loving God who wants nothing but the best for you?
Regardless of your answer to these questions, one thing is absolutely certain: God is the answer to all your fears.
If God is good and loving (and He is), and if God is all-powerful (and He is), and if God has a purpose and a plan that includes His children (and He does), and if we are His children (as I hope you are), then there is no reason to fear anything, for God is in control of everything.
As you read this book, my prayer is that you will grow in your conviction that God is the answer to all your fears, that as you look to the future you will see nothing except His power and love guarding your every step, and that you will find the truth that sets you free to live the fearless life God created you to enjoy.
