October 1: On this day in 1985, writer E.B. White died. White is known for his children’s classics, Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little. He and Professor William Strunk teamed up to write a handbook that I believe all writers should own–The Elements of Style. Here’s a quote about writing from White I found on thinkexist.com, “Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.”
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I’ve posted a book review. Where did the month of September go? With the changing month and now that the leaves are changing and adding color to the scenery, I thought it would be appropriate to post about a book that discusses dealing with life-changing events–without fear.
FEARLESS: Imagine Your Life Without Fear, published by Thomas Nelson Publishing and written by New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado, is an uplifting and inspirational book that offers promise and hope to live without fear. Chapter-by-chapter, using quotes from Scripture, the life of Jesus Christ, and examples from the famous and obsure, Lucado guides readers on a journey to understand and overcome fear.
The Discussion Guide in the back of FEARLESS is a welcome resourse. The guide can be used by groups or individuals. It is divided by chapters and contains three-part lessons for each chapter on: Examining Fear, Exposing Fear, and Battling Fear. Each lesson includes recommended readings from Scripture.
FEARLESS is a spiritually uplifting book to read and use as a study guide to live a life of faith–without fear. It’s a keeper.
