Why Are You Afraid? by Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker
Illness, political turmoil, inflation, job security—these realities and more have many Christians today locked in the throes of fear and anxiety about the future. Not all fear and anxiety is sinful, and yet there are times when how we feel is not in keeping with how God would have his people respond. How do you recognize and respond rightly to sinful fear and anxiety? What is the remedy for overcoming it? In this insightful and devotional book, Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker consider those crucial questions through the lens of the sufficient Word of God.
“This book’s message is neither complex nor obscure. Yet the answers it gives and the help it offers are precisely what multitudes today are desperately looking for—and seemingly unable to find on their own. It is fitting that Darrell and Virgil would write about how to rise above our fears, because they are two of the most intrepid, unflinching, stout-hearted men I have ever had the privilege of knowing. They have written this book with their characteristic courage and raw clarity, and I know you will be blessed by it.”

“What a timely resource. Why Are You Afraid? will encourage so many in this hour of anxiety. Sometimes fear paralyzes us from living boldly in our faith or causes defeat when we should really be living testimonies of the power of God. I’m so thankful for the courage of Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker, and this book will help you understand the source of fear and the path to overcoming fear in your daily life.”
