Overcoming Fear

I have been pleasantly surprised and encouraged by this latest book I read.  I was not familiar with the author but the book title convinced me to give it a try.  After reading it, I would say that the title could be improved even further, cutting out the “Overcoming Fear” and just leaving what is currently the subtitle, “The Supernatural Strategy to Living in Freedom”, because this small book contains much more than just overcoming fear.

In Overcoming Fear Dawna de Silva leads the reader on a journey of discernment, hearing from God, inner healing, freedom, and, ultimately, overcoming fear.  Along the way, she teaches and shares personal anecdotes from her own experience as a Solo counselor at Bethel Church in Redding, California.  This book is full of practical questions to help you apply what you read to your everyday life, Scriptures that correspond with what Dawna writes, and quotations from other well-know and respected authors such as Joyce Meyer and Bill Johnson.  Its length at just under 200 pages makes for a manageable read for those who would be intimidated by anything longer; I read it in about two weeks, taking a chapter a day most days.  I loved the creative examples and stories Dawna used to share these truths; it made it seem like I was talking to a friend.  This is an easy yet deep read that I highly recommend.
