Living in a Dangerous World: Moving from Fear to Faith
About: Living in a Dangerous World.
Everyone is afraid of something. Fear is part of the human experience of living in a broken, fallen world. We try to manage our fears, but our coping mechanisms impact our faith. We hoard resources and stop praying for provision. We stockpile information and forget to seek godly wisdom. Yet we continue to live anxious lives.
William P. Smith explains that our faith should, instead, change our strategies for dealing with fear. He offers practical guidance on how to exchange fear for faith by learning to find security in our relationship with an all-sufficient, unchanging God.
