?One of my favorite passages in the New Testament is when Jesus tells his apostles the following: ?In the world you have troubles; but be of good cheer, I have conquered the world? (Jn. 16:33). There is no doubt, as Jesus affirms, that we live in a troubled world that could give us much to worry about. Yet, our faith in the promises of Christ gives us the ability to overcome our fears and anxieties. In From Fear to Faith Gary Zimak gives both practical advice and biblical examples for helping us to have total confidence and trust in the goodness of our loving God. I highly recommend this book to all!?
