Publisher's Description

A widely admired mainstream pastor shows how people and communities can flourish as beacons of hope and serenity in an anxious age.

Truth is, a mere handful of fears work for us--fear of stepping in front of a bus, for example, or not taking care of our health. But the vast majority--fear of others, of failure, of the future--have almost no basis in reality, yet tie us in knots and steal our peace of mind. These fears, experts say, are often vestiges of primitive 'fight, flight, or freeze' instincts that, mostly, no longer apply. Making matters worse, our hyper fractious era of hate media, divisive politics, and multiplying natural disasters wreak havoc on our state of mind, leaving us troubled and unhappy.
     Fortunately there's abundant good news. As trusted pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows in Unafraid, we can escape the echo chamber of anxiety and dread. With insight, intention and faith, we can learn to overcome what oppresses us, and live with courage and hope.
     Drawing on fresh research, psychology, biblical principles, and his long experience shepherding a diverse faith community in Red State America, Hamilton helps readers untangle the knots of fear and truly embrace Jesus's recurring counsel: "Do not be afraid." He writes with generosity and intelligence for a wide audience in accessible language that will ring true to believer and unbeliever alike.
     For anyone struggling with fear, worry, or anxiety--or who wonders how families and communities can live as peacemakers in troubled times--Unafraid offers an informed and inspiring message full of practical solutions.

Editorial Reviews

"I want every American to read Adam Hamilton's Unafraid. There is no saccharine advice in this book, only honest assessments about the danger of nurturing fears and the power of facing them down."
—Diana Butler Bass, author of Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks

"Fear is the great thief. It steals our peace. It quietly deprives us of one present moment after another, without our even knowing. In Unafraid, Adam gives us a thoughtful, literate, faith-filled guide to re-claiming our minds and our lives."
–John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church in Menlo Park, California, and author of I’d Like You More If You Were More Like Me


"Fear can cause us to become discouraged, disheartened and even despairing. In its worst manifestations, it can paralyze us, rendering us incapable of any productive activity. But in his bold new book, Adam Hamilton gives us a way out and points us towards a hopeful future."
–James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage

 
"Fear cannot be cured with a self-help book.  We need a get-help book, and Adam Hamilton has provided exactly that. Informed by psychology and neuroscience, he  applies practical wisdom gleaned from the Bible and from his years as a pastor. I could almost feel my blood pressure go down as I read."
–Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew and What's So Amazing About Grace?

 
"This will be an indispensable volume for people of faith who want to rise above dysfunction and uncertainty, and remain the people of faith, hope, and love that God calls us to be."
–Mike McCurry, Former White House Secretary/Professor and Director of Wesley Theological Seminary’s Center for Public Theology
 
"Fear is a powerful and paralyzing emotion.  It can save us from danger, or lead us to resent, or even hate our neighbor.  Adam Hamilton’s new book offers a roadmap for facing our fears with faith, one that leads readers to a life of courage and hope.  This book is important and one I highly recommend."
–Richard Rohr, author of Falling Upward
 
"More people than ever struggle today to understand and overcome fear, worry and anxiety. Whatever challenge you’re facing today, you will find Adam’s words are comforting, practical, proven, and inspiring."
–John C. Danforth, former United States Ambassador to the United Nations; former three-term United States Senator from Missouri

 
"With the breadth of scholarship and spiritual wisdom he is known for, Adam Hamilton tackles one of the most important topics of our time: how to face our fears and not be controlled by them. Unafraid addresses nearly every fear imaginable—large and small, real or imagined, those within our power to overcome and those we must accept. For each type of fear, Hamilton offers a disciplined approach of facing facts, examining our assumptions, overcoming anxiety through action, and cultivating a life of faith. Read this book once to appreciate its tremendous value as a resource. Then read it again, as I did, to identify which chapters speak most powerfully to you and allow this consummate pastor to show you how to live with courage and hope."
–Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Washington 

"A wise and compelling book."
—Miroslav Volf, founder and director of Yale Center for Faith and Culture, Yale Divinity School; author of Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized World 

 "Goes beyond mere analysis to offer spiritual practices which can bring real peace to struggling people. I enthusiastically recommend this book."   
—Ed Robb, senior pastor, The Woodlands United Methodist Church, Woodlands, TX  

"Adam Hamilton has done it again serving as a postmodern spiritual guide for a nation in desperate need of renewal.  Hamilton’s exploration of fear, the consequences created by it and the tools to overcome come these False Events Appearing as Real is a revelation. The mix of science, philosophy, practical biblical wisdom, storytelling and personal testimony make this book a joy read."
—Otis Moss, III senior servant/pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ 
 
"I’ve known Adam for decades. I’ve heard his sermons, read his books and watched him lead when he was fearful. I live for Christ and I’m grateful for Adam’s encouragement. In Unafraid, Adam writes, 'As you press through fear, you live…' He’s right. Read Unafraid. Let Adam encourage you to face your fears and live." 
—Mark Beeson, founding pastor, Granger Community Church, Granger, IN
