Item description for Dare to Defy: Conquering Fear with Active Faith by Lincoln Swain...
Dare to Defy: Conquering Fear with Active Faith is the inaugural publication of Divine Liberation, the spirituality imprint of Atomic Quill Press. In a snaggle-toothed epistle delivered from the muddy trenches of human existence at the dawn of the 21st century, Reverend Dr. Lincoln Swain mounts a counter-insurgency against "the purpose driven life." Swain suggests that a committment to values, combined with a vigilant nurturing of those values, allows one to confront the responsibility of free will, God's gift to us. Through benevolent action imbued with love, one can confront the fears of life and death while making your witness for the Lord.

The postmodern Kierkegaard Jun 7, 2005
First things first: I am not in the habit of reading "Christian pamphlets." But I picked up this book based on its well-balanced and irresistible design. What I found inside, after only a quick peek, was the wisdom of an existential philosopher schooled equally on Jean Paul Sartre and the Detroit gospel temple. Swain's tough and ultra-real journey through life in a postmodern world--from the pimped-out Cadillac to the tennis club--speaks not only to readers of "Christian pamphlets," but also to readers of serious philosophy and cultural studies. From page one I was taken with the "powerful Swain self-confidence," and I went along for the ride as he professed a new dogma of "agape": "a secret agent against hate, fear and isolation."
Swain will remind you of the terrible reality that you are indeed free to do as you please. This is the terror of freedom, which can only be relieved (or repressed) once you adhere to this or that belief system. But if you keep your wits about you, you will get the gist of Swain, and choose to live in the terror of freedom, finding relief from your own benevolent actions.
Long live Swain.
Reasonable... Balanced May 23, 2005
I really liked the preface by the author. "Forget Lincoln Swain. Think about Jesus." In this small book, he tried to cover various aspects of Christial life, and the attempt was successful. The author's view on many issues are strikingly balanced and very logical. In this age, such a logically balanced view is quite imiportant and - I feel - quite rare to find in Christian community. Well, being logical itself is not against Jesus.
He has done all of those efforts to be a true witness of the LORD. To be a 'True' witness, we have to know many things, at least. What are they? Read this book.
