Fear pushes, pulls, and tears at our daily lives. Whether we turn to social media, news, movies, politics, marriages, families, schools, or workplaces, fear is frequently obvious or just beneath the surface. It shapes us more than we usually dare to admit.
So how is it possible to thrive in a time of fear? How might the Bible recast our fears in a world of real dangers? How can Christian faith and community help us find and live faithful courage and freedom?

Dr. Mark Labberton is Fuller Seminary's president and professor of preaching. He is author of the books "The Dangerous Act of Loving Your Neighbor: Seeing Others Through the Eyes of Jesus" (2010) and "The Dangerous Act of Worship: Living God’s Call to Justice" (2007). Yet the work he considers most significant is his newest book, "Called: The Crisis and Promise of Following Jesus Today." In it he addresses, profoundly and directly, what it means in a broken and hurting world to practice our shared Christian vocation of following Jesus.
