On a seemingly ordinary Sunday following their morning worship services, Pastor Brady Boyd and the people of New Life Church experienced the unthinkable: a gunman armed with one thousand rounds of ammunition stepped inside their church and opened fire. Before taking his own life, he would kill two innocent teenagers, wound three adults, and leave an entire community shaking their heads in disbelief.
Leaning on his long-held values and core leadership convictions, Boyd, who had been at New Life's helm as senior pastor for exactly one hundred days, marshaled the congregation's courage and strength, declaring they would not be governed by fear.
Fear No Evil details the inspiration, reassurance, and divine guidance the people of New Life relied on, offering hope to anyone who wonders what good can come of their suffering.

Review 2 for Fear No Evil: A Test of Faith, a Courageous Church, and an Unfailing God
I can remember the tragic events that occurred on December 9,2007 when a gunman invaded the campus of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado killing two teenagers and injuring many other people of the congregation. I asked myself why would anybody do such a terrible thing and how can you get over such a horrible event? Reading Pastor Boyd's book Fear No Evil: A Test of Faith, a Courageous Church, and an Unfailing God helped answer those questions for me. Pastor Boyd wrote a book that was full of love, sadness, hope, and tragedy. In reading the account of the shooting, I became very upset and I asked my self "Who would do such a bad thing?" Pastor Boyd's candor and use of scripture throughout the book has taught me that God is always there to assist you in your journey. He opened up his heart to us and showed us his true emotions and how he was able to overcome them. I am not a spiritual person and only attend mass on holidays, but I have learned a lot from reading the book. In the beginning of each chapter, Pastor Boyd included quotes from famous people. My favorite quote was by Thelma Wells "God does not always heal us instantly the way we think. He is not a jack-in-the-box God. But God is walking with me through this." Boy is that so true because we live in a society where we want things instantly and that is not how God works. I highly recommend this inspirational book to everyone.
