Our weekly adult Bible Study group is using this series. We show the DVD and then our pastor leads us in a discussion. It has been a blessing to the group with tremendous insights from scripture. We need to hear this message series as many have lost sight of the fear (awesome/majesty/reverence) of the Lord. John Bevere teaches the basic principles of God's character and brings back balance of the fear of the Lord and the love of the Lord. It is proving to have a great impact on those attending the study.

Review 2 for Fear Of The Lord Rev - eBook
conjecture, poor exegesis, bad teaching
Date:July 17, 2013
Scripture is very clear regarding the fear of the Lord. John Bevere, however, has muddied it up by taking a topic and twisting it to fit a particular agenda. His blatant misuse of scripture is appalling. While he pats himself on the back claiming encouragement and confirmation directly from God, he uses scripture in a very loose way and with extremely poor exegetical application. Quite often he uses scriptures that refer to unbelievers and applies them directly to believers, which makes it seem that his point is sound but is actually teaching of the worst kind. He will also search out different translations in order to conjure up a point he wants to make, changing the meanings of words to fit into his concept. The worst offense: the session about Ananias and Sapphira was blatant over-the-top conjecture, minimized the atonement, and absolutely broke the boundaries of covenant.
My review would not have any stars, but I was not permitted to eliminate the star from this review. Pass on this errant filled, pseudo-spiritual, self-promoting drivel. For those who have seen it and liked it, I would recommend some time spent on good biblical word study using well affirmed and good quality commentaries as opposed to this hyper-spiritual mess.
Bottom-line: John Bevere misuses scripture to make his main point: that the church has to get it's act together and display a proper fear of the Lord so that God can move mightily in our age (the whole highly disputed "latter rain" doctrine). Hogwash. If God is depending on human beings to do anything before He moves we are all in a great deal of trouble!
I felt led by the Holy Spirit to buy and read this book, and it is one of the most truthful and needed books in our world today. I love and repect John Bevere as an amazing, honest, truthful, loving minister, author,and man of god. I am greatful that he is led by the Holy Spirit and not moved by greed, popularity, or any other pressures on leaders in our society today.
I am not even a quarter of the way through the book and I have already gotten my money's worth. Great book. It is time that we get back to the basics. If you want to draw close to God than first you must have this Holy Fear and revere Him. We can not count the stars in the sky yet, God placed each one with his fingers and He calls each by name. We are so busy praising God that we have forgotten that even Jesus told us to fear God. When I tell people I fear God, they say there is something wrong. Thank you, John Bevere, for getting me back on the right track. Everyone needs to read "The Fear of the Lord".
It's not your average everyday just another Christian book. It brings a balance to an out of balance Americanized Christianity. But then you find out its not just here but everywhere. Jesus deserves so much more from us.
I am grateful for John Bevere in bringing the whole counsel of God in a time when preachers want to tickle the ears of their congregation and are not addressing the whole counsel of God in favor of pop psychology doctine, Anyone that would bash this book, should re-read it & learn how to have an intimate relationship with God
Bevere has some good things to say, but he seems distracted by lots of other themes that have little to do with the fear of God. In the end he definitely doesn't provide anything close to a thorough study on the fear of God, as the title would suggest.
John Bevere is an outstanding Christian author. "The Fear of the Lord" exposes our failure to stand in awe of our Creator. Bevere challenges us to honor God in the way writers of many books of the Bible tell us we should. Christians tend to gloss over scriptural references to "fear of God". Bevere brings our focus back to our responsibility toward God.
