More on UNAFRAID:
In doing research for a sermon series, Hamilton conducted a survey of his congregation to gain deeper insight into the emotion of fear. Of the 2,400 people who participated, 80 percent reported living with moderate or significant levels of fear. He then analyzed the latest national polls to see what people across the country rank as their top fears and delved deeper into that research.
UNAFRAID combines thorough research, powerful stories from people Hamilton has pastored and timeless wisdom from the Scriptures. He helps readers understand some of the most common fears we wrestle with, differentiate between those things we should fear and false or exaggerated fears and find ways to cope with our fears that lead us to live with hope. The book also helps readers identify and counter their fears in key areas of threat: crime, race, terrorism, politics, failure, disappointing others, insignificance, loneliness, change, and finances, and the perennial fears of growing old and death. To these near-universal fears, Hamilton brings insights in critical areas, including:
- why you will never fully eliminate fear from your life (and why that’s a good thing)
- the search for meaning as a fundamental need
- how people from time immemorial have addressed their fears
- spiritual practices that can bring real peace
- cognitive restructuring to identify faulty assumptions and replace them with positive thinking
- how appropriate fear plays an important role in our lives
Hamilton draws upon insights from psychology, sociology and the Scriptures to offer inspiration and help for addressing the most common sources of fear, worry and anxiety and guides the reader in how to live “unafraid, with courage and hope.”
