Editorial Reviews

With the breadth of scholarship and spiritual wisdom he is known for, Adam Hamilton tackles one of the most important topics of our time: how to face our fears and not be controlled by them. Unafraid addresses nearly every fear imaginable—large and small, real or imagined, those within our power to overcome and those we must accept. For each type of fear, Hamilton offers a disciplined approach of facing facts, examining our assumptions, overcoming anxiety through action, and cultivating a life of faith. Read this book once to appreciate its tremendous value as a resource. Then read it again, as I did, to identify which chapters speak most powerfully to you and allow this consummate pastor to show you how to live with courage and hope. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Washington 
Adam Hamilton has done it again serving as a postmodern spiritual guide for a nation in desperate need of renewal.  Hamilton’s exploration of fear, the consequences created by it and the tools to overcome come these False Events Appearing as Real is a revelation. The mix of science, philosophy, practical biblical wisdom, storytelling and personal testimony make this book a joy read. Otis Moss, III senior servant/pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ 
I’ve known Adam for decades. I’ve heard his sermons, read his books and watched him lead when he was fearful. I live for Christ and I’m grateful for Adam’s encouragement. In Unafraid, Adam wrote, ‘As you press through fear, you live…’ He’s right. Read Unafraid. Let Adam encourage you to face your fears and live. Mark Beeson, founding pastor, Granger Community Church, Granger, IN
More people than ever struggle today to understand and overcome fear, worry and anxiety. Whatever challenge you’re facing today, you will find Adam’s words are comforting, practical, proven, and inspiring. John C. Danforth, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations; former three-term United States Senator from Missouri
Fear is a powerful and paralyzing emotion.  It can save us from danger, or lead us to resent, or even hate our neighbor.  Adam Hamilton’s new book offers a roadmap for facing our fears with faith, one that leads readers to a life of courage and hope.  This book is important and one I highly recommend. Richard Rohr, author of Falling Upward
Fear can cause us to become discouraged, disheartened and even despairing. In its worst manifestations, it can paralyze us, rendering us incapable of any productive activity. But in his bold new book, Adam Hamilton gives us a way out and points us towards a hopeful future. James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage
Fear cannot be cured with a self-help book.  We need a get-help book, and Adam Hamilton has provided exactly that. Informed by psychology and neuroscience, he  applies practical wisdom gleaned from the Bible and from his years as a pastor. I could almost feel my blood pressure go down as I read. Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew and What's So Amazing About Grace?
This will be an indispensable volume for people of faith who want to rise above dysfunction and uncertainty, and remain the people of faith, hope, and love that God calls us to be. Mike McCurry, Former White House Secretary/Professor and Director of Wesley Theological Seminary’s Center for Public Theology
Fear is the great thief. It steals our peace. It quietly deprives us of one present moment after another, without our even knowing. In Unafraid, Adam gives us a thoughtful, literate, faith-filled guide to re-claiming our minds and our lives. John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church in Menlo Park, California, and author of I’d Like You More If You Were More Like Me
