Publisher's Description

“I’m really concerned about the state of the world. It feels like things are falling apart.”
“I’m worried about my family’s future.”
“How can I stand firm in my faith in today’s culture?”

Our times are turbulent ones, and questions and worries like these can haunt us and keep us awake at night. Yet is it possible that, ultimately, there is actually nothing to fear? Barry C. Black is the spiritual “leader of leaders” for the US Senate—shepherding those on the front lines of the decisions that shape our culture. Now, Chaplain Black shows all of us how to thrive in the midst of today’s turbulence and confusion by following eight principles that Jesus gave his disciples prior to sending them into a dangerous world. These teachings are as relevant today as when Jesus first spoke them two thousand years ago.

Containing Scriptural insights and powerful prayers to help you seek God’s guidance and blessing, Nothing to Fear will illuminate the way to live boldly, bravely, and faithfully in the face of today’s perils.

Editorial Reviews

Black (The Blessing of Adversity), a retired U.S. Navy admiral and current chaplain to the United States Senate, aims this straightforward and intelligent motivational handbook at helping readers strengthen their spiritual practices in order to navigate life’s turbulent times. Seven overarching sections with such titles as “Prepare to Be Sent,” “Thrive in a Predatory World,” and “Persevere through Rejection” each include several chapters composed of “Fearless Principles” and a closing “Purposeful Prayer.” Drawing illustrations from the scriptures, contemporary culture, his own impoverished childhood, his Navy career, and his current work, Black conveys his message in an accessible and often thought-provoking manner: “Real love celebrates diversity. In fact, if we don’t like diversity, we probably won’t like heaven.” Expounding on the “Fearless Principle: Pray with adoration,” he writes: “How would you feel if you were a parent whose child only spoke to you when he or she wanted something?” Black’s theologically sound guidance and simple yet meaningful prayers allow this fine book to serve as a resource for study and contemplation as well as a devotional guide.

    Nothing to Fear: Principles and Prayers to Help You Thrive in a Threatening World by Barry C. Black is a spiritual growth book about dealing with worries for the future and feeling scared and threatened in the "now." This book is particularly relevant at this moment because of the political situation in the United States and the international implications of the executive orders that are coming down.

    This book is written by the chaplain of the U.S. Senate and a distinguished Navy veteran, so he has an interesting perspective on fear and looking to the future. He outlines seven principles that Jesues gave to the disciples. There are prayers here as well as personal experiences.

    What I liked the most about this book was the style of writing. Even though there is a lot taken from the Bible, it doesn't feel preachy. I enjoyed his stories about his childhood that were interspersed with the deeper discussions. It made the lessons feel more relevant.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

    It seems that everywhere I look I see or hear the word fear. It comes moment by moment in newscasts and the posts on social media. It shows up on titles of blogs and new books. Perhaps it even can whisper in our ear when we are not paying attention. It reminds us that we live in a dangerous world. What we may need to hear and see more of are the evidences of God with us" in the midst.

    To that end, Nothing to Fear: Principles & Prayers to Help in a Threatening World by Barry C. Black, Chaplain of the United States Senate, speaks truth in reminders of who we are in Christ and how to find our way back to focus on Him when we slip down the primrose path fear might tempt us toward.

    "Nothing To Fear" by Barry Black, US Senate Chaplain, challenges the reader to look to Christ instead of self for overcoming life's struggles. The book is around 230 pages and is organized as follows:

    1. 26 chapters (around 8-15 pages) on various topics (serving others, being prepared for life's surprises, conquering fear, living with integrity, avoiding certain things like sloth/gluttony/envy/greed/etc., simplifying life, broken dreams, etc.).

    2. Appropriate Bible verses and principles to live by.

    3. Suggested prayer at the end of each chapter.

    There is also a helpful discussion guide at the end of the book. The text is very readable and smoothly transitions from topic to topic. The author is the former Chief of Navy Chaplains and was also a two star admiral. I have some friends whose son will be going into the Navy later this year and I will give this title to him asa gift. Good read. I was given a review copy by Tyndale Publishers in exchange for a fair and honest review.
