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.

Review 1 for What Are You Afraid Of?: Facing Down Your Fears with Faith, Hardcover
Hope for your Fears
Date:November 27, 2013
Life is filled with fears. Dr. David Jeremiah takes a look at these fears as well as providing strong Biblical teaching on how to overcome these fears. There are 10 types of fear that are discussed. These fears are: disaster, disease, debt, defeat, loneliness, disapproval, danger, depression, death, and God. These are things that everyone deals with in themselves or in other people that touch our lives. The hope and practical wisdom provided is motivating.
I know this book will be a great reference tool to be used throughout my life. Working with people on a daily basis will put these principles into practice. I look forward to sharing this wisdom with the people in my life.
My heartfelt thanks to Netgalley and Tyndale House Publishers for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book

Review 2 for What Are You Afraid Of?: Facing Down Your Fears with Faith, Hardcover
In his newest book, "What Are You Afraid Of?", David Jeremiah identifies ten of our biggest fears (disaster, disease, debt, defeat, disconnection, disapproval, danger, depression, death and deity) and walks us through how God is the answer to all of our fears. His mission in writing this book is to convince us that God is in control and we have no reason to be afraid. By faith, we can conquer any fear that paralyzes us and keeps us locked in worry mode.
The world we live in offers plenty of things to be afraid of, but Scripture tells us that God did not give us a spirit of fear. David Jeremiah weaves biblical examples, personal experiences and shares the stories of others to demonstrate God's faithfulness to His promise to never leave us or forsake us. As long as we place our trust in Him, we have nothing to fear.
"What Are You Afraid Of" is timely and a great resource for those who live their lives in fear. The chapters do not have to be read in sequence so if you are struggling with something in particular, you can read that chapter. As always, Jeremiah offers practical encouragement from the Bible to help others deal with their worries. He also shares a few of his own and how he conquered them by studying Scripture and trusting God.
This is a great resource to share with friends who are struggling with fear.
