In this 31-day devotional, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows how the Bible’s most memorable stories can help us nurture lives of peace, courage, and hope.
Our capacity to experience fear is a gift from God. It protects us from harm by sensing possible danger and motivating us to act. But fear can also dominate our lives. We worry about the future, about our health, about disappointing our friends and family. When these worries play over and over in our minds without resolution, it can rob us of joy and keep us from pursuing the life we’re meant to live.
In Living Unafraid, Pastor Hamilton walks readers through 31 of the Bible’s most-loved stories, showing how the people of Scripture found hope in God in the face of adversity and some of life’s most frightening situations. Each day, he unpacks a new lesson—from Creation to the Gospels to the final words of Revelation—showing how God’s love and deliverance can empower us for the battles we face today.
Thoughtful, practical, and grounded in Scripture, Living Unafraid is an essential read for anyone seeking hope along life’s journey.
