Do Not Be Afraid! by Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider
I received this book in exchange for my review, a small amount of advertisement is included in the post.
Do you live full of fear? This world is a very uncertain place, but...
You Can Live Without Fear!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 Everyone deals with fear; not everyone conquers it. Throughout our lives we all experience different kinds of fears. Unfortunately, many of us believe the lie that fear is something we have to live with. You don't! According to Scripture, God desires every one of His children to be free from fear-including you! In Do Not Be Afraid!, Rabbi K.A. Schneider shares personal testimony of how he struggled with, and experienced victory over fear-and how you too can walk in this same supernatural freedom. This book shows you how to: * Identify and overcome the enemy's number one weapon against believers * Unlock the power of God's Word to defeat different fears that come against you * Pursue freedom as a lifestyle, not a temporary experience * Enjoy supernatural peace even while living in a dark world * Resist the devil's trap, * Walk in Jesus' supernatural freedom, and fearlessly step into your destiny today!
Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider, a Jewish believer in Jesus and end-times messenger of the LORD, delivers the Word of the LORD with true passion of the Holy Spirit. At the age of 20 years old, the LORD appeared to him, supernaturally, as Jesus, the Messiah. He has since pastored, traveled as an evangelist, and more recently, served as rabbi of a messianic synagogue.

I received this book from Bookfun.org in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I was not required to give a positive review.
In the world we live in, how does a person live without fear? There is so much happening around us, that fear seems to be a way of life for most. I know there are many things that could paralyze me with fear if I allow it.
In this book, Rabbi Schneider talks about his childhood and his many phobias. He explains how at times they practically paralyzed him and he could barely go on because of his fear. He tells about his Jewish background, his family life, and how God really did not play much of a part in his early life. He then gives his testimony of how Jesus rescued him from that life, and through much Bible study and prayer, he learned to live life free of fear.
The author give countless Scriptures on how to overcome fear. He emphasizes the need to fully and completely trust the Lord, and when God is first and foremost in our lives, and we learn to accept him as Sovereign, we do not need to fear no matter what is happening around us.
Each chapter begins with a verse and ends with a prayer. Learning to find freedom from fear is an ongoing process of hiding God's word in our hearts, learning to trust Him. Satan has used the fear tactic from the get-go and is still using it today.
I felt like the majority of this book was Biblically sound. There were a few of the Rabbi's personal experiences that I have to say I was a bit skeptical about, but I cannot judge how God reveals himself or his Spirit to another person. I do know that God reaches out to different individuals in ways they can relate to Him, and He knows how to draw men to himself. This book is on a more charismatic level, than my personal choice of belief, but I honestly feel like a person can glean alot from what the Rabbi has to say, and ultimately he has professed the truth of Jesus as Messiah, the way to heaven, and restorer of man's relationship to the Father.
What do you fear? How do you cope with your fears? I would love to hear your thoughts.
