Written resources to help you face life’s challenges in God’s strength, discover the joys of walking closely with him and grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord.


Many of you have asked about “further reading” on fear.  Here are some of the books I have worked with while preparing for this series.  If you’re going to read one book on the fear of the Lord then pick-up Mike Reeves’ new book from Crossway – it’s a treasure trove of insights.  John Flavel’s work from the 1600s is a timeless classic.  Chang is sensitive and practical in writing about Anxiety, and shares much from his own personal experience.  Bader-Saye’s book is very thoughtful, sometimes provocative, and always interesting.  Furedi writes as a social scientist – not a Christian – and provides a fascinating cultural account of fear.  Enjoy!
