Summary

Many Christians have never understood the fear of the Lord, which builds passion and intimacy into their relationship with god and makes their lives real and pure. In this rerelease of his book, John Bevere dispels the false understanding of god. Understanding why and how to fear god is the beginning of knowing Him as He yearns to be known. In his lovingly confrontational style, Bevere challenges believers to reverence God anew in their worship, prayers, and daily living. This book will inform and encourage believers to intimately know god like never before.

The fear of God!

A very good revelation of the fear of God. Throughout the bible from old testament to new testament. The fear of God is clearly shown by John Bevere as not being afraid of God but fear of being without God!

Highly recommended!

I found this book very helpful.
It opened my eyes to a fresh perspective and understanding of the fear of the LORD.

I think anyone who is seeking to go deeper with God should read this book and also take the time to consider what it's sharing and the implications.

I highly recommend it.

As stated earlier, should be required reading!

Other than the Bible John Bevere's books should be required reading for every Christian and certainly for anyone who is in the ministry full time. His insight into scripture is phenomenal and the truth he speaks through God's Holy Word touches you to the core of your soul. I recommend this book to all believers who are looking to go deeper in their relationship with God.

A Half Truth.

The author has not delivered the whole message of what it means to fear God. The word translated "fear" in many versions of the Bible comes from the Hebrew word yirah which has a range of meaning in the Scriptures. Sometimes it refers to the fear we feel in anticipation of some danger or pain, but it can also can mean "awe" or "reverence." In this latter sense, yirah includes the idea of wonder, amazement, mystery, astonishment, gratitude, admiration, and even worship. The "fear of the LORD" therefore includes an overwhelming sense of the glory, worth, and beauty of the One True God. Unfortunetly the author clings to fear and dread.

This book needs to be listened to several times.

You need more than one listen to unlock the wealth of wisdom in this book. So far I have listened to it three times. Each time more insight is unlocked in me and I am able to get a deeper comprehension of the truths that the Bevere points out.

Understanding The Fear of the Lord

I heard the author of this book speak in an interview on the subject of the fear of the Lord. It ignited in me such a curiosity to learn more that I immediately sought out his books. I really enjoyed this book and felt like I learned some things in the Bible I did not already know and it has challenged me to examine my own faith journey. I enjoyed the person reading the book. I would recommend and will seek additional books from this writer.

The antidote to false security

Philippians 2:12, 13
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

The fear of the Lord it is an open door of the knowledge and wisdom that guides us to sanctification I highly recommend this book it should be a book we turn to year after year to remind ourselves the importance of a true walk with God!
