On a seemingly ordinary Sunday following their morning worship services, Pastor Brady Boyd and the people of New Life Church experienced the unthinkable: a gunman armed with one thousand rounds of ammunition stepped inside their church and opened fire. Before taking his own life, he would kill two innocent teenagers, wound three adults, and leave an entire community shaking their heads in disbelief. Leaning on his long-held values and core leadership convictions, Boyd, who had been at New Life's helm as senior pastor for exactly one hundred days, marshaled the congregation's courage and strength, declaring they would not be governed by fear. Fear No Evil details the inspiration, reassurance, and divine guidance the people of New Life relied on, offering hope to anyone who wonders what good can come of their suffering.
