“Fear Fighting: Awakening the Courage to Overcome Your Fears”. The title alone sounds like a book worth reading, wouldn’t you agree? Written by Kelly Balarie and published by BakerBooks, this Christian Living non-fiction book is a volume that promises to help readers transform into fear fighters, and “women breaking free of trepidation to find bold dedication to God’s peace-, purpose-, and joy-filled callings”.
Without question, there are gems hidden inside the pages of “Fear Fighting” that will speak to your heart and inspire you… The only problem? For me, those gems were very few and far between. Unfortunately, the majority of the book was excessively wordy and rather boring. The author’s personal stories were not often relevant to me, and her thoughts and ideas did not feel fresh or original. While it is clear that she meant well, and is honestly passionate about her subject, this book and I just didn’t connect. Perhaps other readers will find Kelly Balarie’s words to resonate with them on a personal level, but for me, “Fear Fighting” did not capture my interest or inspire me to any noteworthy degree.
I received this book free of charge for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own.
