For many, fear is not an abstract concept or rear disease that they can disassociate themselves from. It is a living breathing reality that they face every day. Many are stifled by it, enslaved to it, beholden to it, and sadly, controlled by it. But how do we react to our fears? How can we find that peace in the storm of fear? And more importantly, how does the gospel address the issue of fear in the messiness of covenant living? Yes, we know the intellectual/Sunday School answer is Christ, but Trillia Newbell does not simply give us Christ as the answer – she does us one better – in her new book, Fear and Faith, she gives us a concrete blueprint of how to apply the gospel (Christ) to the subject of fear. And she does so with fearlessly!Exposing FearNewbell exposes fear in a way that only those to whom fear is a reality can. She is beautifully honest about her own daily fears and how she, like so many of us, allows fear to fester in her heart and mind robbing her of true joy in Christ (pg. 67). If we are to understand the nature of this joy robbing fear, however, we must understand the source of this fear. And I think Newbell hits the nail on the head when she identifies pride as the culprit (pg. 25). Pride leads to preoccupation with self, and preoccupation with self leads to a firm desire to seek the approval of others. When all is said and done, we end up dissatisfied with ourselves, disappointed by others, and worse of all, failing to glorify God. This is why Newbell rightly addresses the fear of man from the very onset. It is a fear that is borne out of a desire to seek the approval of others. But how do we escape the fear of man?
