Very helpful when dealing with fear Mar 29, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. I have been dealing with fear in coming to grips with a terminal illness. This book helped me to realize that I am not the only one who is dealing with fear and that God can use any of us in any situation. To be able to relate fear to the Old Testiment and see how they handled the struggles helped to increase my faith and make my walk with Jesus that much more strong. Thank you for writing such a wonderful book.
Robert L. Simkins points people in the right direction--to the Bible! Mar 27, 2007
When it comes to an instruction book on how to life on this earth, the Bible is it. Whether we're looking for answers regarding how we should live our lives, where we should spend our money or how to deal with fear, the Bible should always be our ultimate resource. Robert L. Simpkins does an excellent job of showcasing the many examples within the Old Testament of various followers of God and how they faced fear head-on. When you realize that you're not alone--that great men of God like David, Isaiah, Noah, and others faced similar situations--there's power in that. I found Simpkins' book well-written and well organized (and I couldn't find any grammatical or spelling errors on the back cover).
Ok content, horrible editing Jan 25, 2007
I picked up this book because I struggle with fear. A book which described how to overcome one's fears by exploring the lives of Old Testament characters seemed interesting. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The content is so-so. It seems more like a summary of the Old Testament than an exploration into God's power to overcome fear. "David was afraid, but he trusted God." Yes, that's true, however I was hoping for a bit more depth. The author seems to be writing more to non-Christians than to Christians. Perhaps that was the intent, but the back cover lead me to believe otherwise. What troubled me more than the content was the editing. There is a grammatical error on the back cover of the book. Beyond that, I could spend hours discussing the poor grammar, misplaced punctuation, and numerous typographical errors. Does Tate Publishing actually provide the editorial services they claim on their website? I appreciate a Christian publishing house providing an avenue for little-known Christian authors to publish their works, but shouldn't they edit them first? I could also write an essay on how this reflects on the Christian community as a whole, but I digress. My point? If you're looking for a book that will assist you in overcoming your fears with the help of God, I encourage you to look elsewhere. If you're interested in an overview of the Old Testament, this is a good resource.
