Facing Fear: The Journey to Mature Courage in Risk and Persecution (Paperback)
Developing an Anti-Fragile Faith
Violence against Christ-followers is increasing globally. The lived reality for many Christians involves daily threats, risks, and persecution. When evil casts its shadow on us, and we're tempted to despair, it is vital to develop anti-fragile faith and the guts to endure in hard places.
Facing Fear is a practical guide for believers who long to have bold, mature courage. Cultivating this courage is necessary to endure wisely for Christ's sake. Anna Hampton integrates exegesis and psychology to explain how humans respond to fear and how the Holy Spirit enables us to make a different choice than our normal. Learning to face our fears, name them, and manage them requires learning specific steps to reduce their impact on us.
This book is a pastoral and practical resource for those working to advance the gospel in the world's most dangerous places. You'll gain valuable skills to become "shrewd as a serpent" and stand with unshakable faith in unsafe situations. Risk can be an offering of worship. Jesus is worthy of whatever pain you go through, whatever loss you experience, and whatever fears you have.
