To some degree, everyone experiences fear. It impacts the decisions we make and leaves us feeling helpless. John Flavel begins this book by examining various fears and discussing general ways God governs it in this world. He then turns to sinful fear in particular, explaining its causes and disastrous effects. His longest chapter discusses rules for dealing with sinful fear, showing how a proper fear of God is the ultimate remedy for all other fears. This practical book will help you avoid making excuses for sinful fear and encourage you to trust in Christ s commitment to settle His people s feeble and trembling hearts.Editorial ReviewsReviewOne of the great biblical principles which our Reformed and Puritan forefathers lived by may be summed up in these words: It is always better to suffer than to sin. This excellent book by John Flavel, now reissued in up-to-date style, gives solid reasons why every believer in Christ must seek to correct his fear of man by reminding himself of the need to fear God far more. God s covenant faithfulness will always sustain the Christian. Here is a summons to every child of God to live daily in the fear of the Lord and with a good conscience so as to appear with joy before the Great Judge at the last. Maurice Roberts --EndorsementAbout the AuthorJohn Flavel (1628 1691) was an English Puritan minister in the thriving seaport of Dartmouth.
